A new trailer for Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened shows the relationship between Sherlock and Holmes

Ukrainian studio Frogwares has released a new trailer ahead of the release of Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened, scheduled for April 11. In this horror adventure in which Sherlock meets Cthulhu, a young Sherlock Holmes and John Watson face a chilling and shocking case that will bind and mark them forever; the new footage highlights this new, expanded version of Holmes and Watson's relationship.

In the title, Frogwares revisited the relationship between the characters of Sherlock Holmes and Watson, introducing important changes on a narrative level. The focus was placed on the exploration of the first important cases that the two investigators would face together, deepening the consolidation of their famous bond. One of the main novelties concerns the character of Watson, who has been given more attention than the original version of the game. Its storyline has been completely revisited, making it playable in some parts of the game and decisive for the new ending.

In addition, the narrative context has been enriched by fantastic elements such as elven gods, monsters and cults, which question Sherlock's very existence. In this scenario, Watson's character often acts as an "anchor" to prevent Sherlock from falling into total madness. However, the developers did not want to portray Watson as a simple one-dimensional safety net, without character or flaws of its own. On the contrary, the new approach to the story highlights the complexity of the two characters as individuals, as well as investigators grappling with unfathomable Lovecraftian monstrosities.

We leave you to the trailer: good vision!
