After a short delay, Ukrainian developer FrogWares’ partially crowdfunded Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened remake will begin solving its Cthulhu-inspired case from 11th April. Due out on both PS5 and PS4, the release will be available in two permutations: Standard Edition and Deluxe Edition – the latter of which including a side-quests pack, six exclusive outfits, and a digital art book and soundtrack.
For those who don’t know, this game is based on a 2007 PC title of the same name, although it’s been completely rebuilt from the ground up. Set in 1884, the plot takes the titular detective to Louisiana, where he’s forced to contend with an Eldritch horror beyond human comprehension. While the protagonist will have to deal with insanity, he’ll also be solving problems using his trademark logic and deduction.
There’s a release date trailer embedded above, which should give you a better idea of the horrors that await.
