Frogwares has confirmed that Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One will be releasing on November 16th for Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC. The Xbox One and PS4 versions, as earlier announced, will be releasing a few weeks afterwards. Along with a new release date trailer, there’s a new gameplay deep dive available. Check it out below.
The deep dive provides a closer look at the game’s investigative mechanics along with exploration and combat. As with previous games, depending on the evidence gathered, players can arrest certain NPCs or plead mercy if they seem innocent. Combat takes place from the third person and Sherlock can dodge-roll and slow down time to line up shots along with executing takedowns.
One neat aspect is using the environment against foes. Shooting a nearby vase causes its shards to fly into foes and you can even shoot armor off of them. Sherlock can also don various outfits and garner some extra protection for himself. Difficulty options are also included for both investigations and combat, and players can adjust different aspects as they see fit. Stay tuned for more details en route to release.
