Sherlock Holmes The Awakened – Remake announced!

The dark, Lovecraft-inspired game Sherlock Holmes The Awakened will get a remake! This game will be a full remake and substantial rewrite of the game from 2006. The developers at Frogwares have announced that they are rebuilding the entire game from scratch to run on Unreal Engine 4, and adding entirely new gameplay mechanics and reworking the original ones. The story and graphics of the game will also get a substantial overhaul.

The Awakened will be coming to PC, PS4, PS5, XB1, Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch with a Kickstarter campaign set to launch soon to help secure the game’s final production funds and offer fans a few more bonuses and rewards for supporting the Ukrainian studio at a time when their country is at war.

This remake of The Awakened sees a young Sherlock take on his first major case alongside his newly acquainted sidekick, John Watson. What seems like a straightforward case of a missing person quickly spirals into a web of conspiracies by a nefarious cult that worships the eldritch god Cthulhu and are attempting to bring about an ancient prophecy. The game will take the detective duo across 4 locations – Victorian London, a Swiss psych ward, the New Orleans bayous, and the Scottish Highlands – as they try to separate reality from the supernatural while trying to put a stop to these shadowy madmen.

Keep an eye on the Kickstarter campaign for Sherlock Holmes The Awakened for more information about this upcoming game!
