Mediterranean Paradise Is Filled With Bad Apples in Intense SHERLOCK HOLMES: CHAPTER ONE Trailers

Frogwares — the award-winning team behind The Sinking City and The Testament of Sherlock Holmes — has shared online two action-packed trailers for their next major production — Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One.

Unlike the majority of Frogwares' Sherlock Holmes games, the upcoming project — which will arrive on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC at some point in 2021 — won't be set in a faithfully recreated London. Instead, Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One will take place on a sunny, breathtaking island in the Mediterranean. 

To accompany the release of the new trailers, the Ukrainian studio has also revealed some fascinating details on their cross-gen detective extravaganza. First of all, Frogwares has officially confirmed that Chapter One will be a pretty lengthy adventure, as the title's main story will last around 15 hours — but it will take you up to 40 hours to finish it if you decide to explore the world and take part in some of the game's 20 side quests.

Although Chapter One will be Sherlock's origin story, the titular character won't be no punching bag, as the agile hero will wield a handgun — and even full-blown smoke bombs — to deal with more difficult enemies.

That's not all, as the world's greatest detective will also be the owner of a luxurious mansion that players will be able to restore and "custom decorate the mansion as you see fit, with goods from local merchants."

To learn more about the dangerous world of Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One, take a look at these new trailers:

As Sherlock, your legacy is written by the decisions you make in this open world detective adventure. Deception, violence, and deduction are just a few resources in your arsenal—your mysterious companion and sounding board, Jon, is another. Whether you choose brute force to solve problems or stay one step ahead of your enemies by using your wits to spot vulnerabilities, you decide what each situation demands as you hone your investigative skills. It’s time to confront your past so you can become the legend you’re destined to be.

Sherlock Holmes Chapter One is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC (via Steam, GOG, and the EGS) in 2021.
