News | Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened Remake Revealed

Frogwares has unveiled a remake of adventure game Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened.

It was previously announced that the studio is working on a remake of the game, but now a trailer has also been released.

The original game was released in 2008, but is now completely rebuilt in Unreal Engine 4. The game therefore features modern graphics and animations, as well as a more extensive story, various side missions and new game mechanics.

In Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened, Holmes investigates a series of mysterious disappearances in Europe and the United States, which may in some way be related to the Lovecraft monster Cthulhu.

Frogwares has also launched a Kickstarter campaign for the game. The studio is located in Ukraine, which complicates development, requiring additional finances. The developer needs 70,000 euros to make the game, but this goal has already been achieved.

Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened is set to release sometime in 2023 on Steam, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X and S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
