We are still waiting for the new version of Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened and now know when we will be able to take this dark walk in the world again. Some of us thought it was going to be a long way out with what was going on around Frogwares, but here we go with the announcement that the game is coming soon. We can all look forward to Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened hitting the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on April 11th now. Those looking for the Switch version will have to wait a little longer, but that should not be the longest of waits given how things are now flowing. It is time to get those pre-orders out there now.
To go along with this announcement, we have a new trailer to take in and see some of the darkness in the mix of it all. That and a look at the extra skins we will have for Sherlock Holmes if we do opt to pre-order the game too. It may not be the largest of things to add to our game here, but it is something to make the game a little more interesting beyond all of the cosmic horror aspects in the game. That is something that feels like it will break Sherlock Holmes' mind a bit more once he sees that much of what is known is not exactly it. Just when science and magic cross paths and there are no good explanations as to why things are broken or strange out there.
Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened — Release Date
Preorder now and get The Sleuth's Attire Cosmetic Set for free! Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened will release on April 11 on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series, Xbox One, & Switch. Preorders on the Nintendo Switch will launch at a later date.
Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened is a Cthulhu meets Sherlock Holmes detective horror adventure. The game acts as a continuation of young Sherlock’s story with Holmes and Watson undertaking their first major case together.
An Eldritch god-obsessed cult is making moves in the shadows to bring about a world-altering prophecy and it’s up to the young detective duo to thwart their plans. This is a creative take on what horror-filled and reality-breaking events could have met our heroes at such a crucial point in their lives to go on and shape them into the characters we all know they become. Delve into the trauma and fear that cements their friendship for good and the revelations that break Sherlock’s mind to create the flawed and haunted genius he is destined to be.
Originally released in 2006, The Awakened is a full remake and substantial rewrite being rebuilt and redesigned from the ground up to run in Unreal Engine 4.
