Developer Frogwares has announced that Sherlock Holmes Chapter One will be launching this November, taking the young detective to the Mediterranean island of Cordona, where he'll rub shoulders with the local elite. Before long, you'll learn that there's more to Cordona's societal upper crust than just tea and biscuits.
As showcased in the narrated gameplay deep dive video below, Sherlock will once again be able to make use of his Mind Palace to connect clues and draw conclusions, as well as being able to visit the Holmes family mansion, and engage in combat. All of this will be determined by various difficulty settings, that allow you to toggle certain features on or off.
Sherlock Holmes Chapter One will be coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on 16th November 2021, priced $44.99, before coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at a later date. Pre-ordering will grant a ‘Victorian Starter Pack’ with the bonus ‘The Lead Zeppelin’ quest, a unique Consulting Detective, The Victorian Vampire outfit, 500 Manghirs to spend on Cordona Island, and a digital copy of Sherlock Holmes Crimes and Punishments.
A Sherlock Holmes Chapter One Deluxe Edition will also be available for $59.99, bundling the base game and Season Pass, which will grant access to the day one ‘Saints & Sinners’ quest, the post-launch Mycroft Holmes questline, and more to be unveiled at a later date.
