Sherlock Holmes Chapter One, an adventure starring the most famous detective in literature, is now on sale on PC, Xbox Series X | S and PlayStation 5. Frogwares announced in September a small delay for the versions of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with the intention of launching the game before the end of the year but the date will not be met: Frogwares has confirmed that they are now scheduled for the first quarter of 2022.
Chapter One, a prequel that chronicles the investigations of Sherlock Holmes before he became the world-famous detective, was delayed for giving the quality expected of the game on the previous generation consoles. “We just need more time and a bit of calm for our team to close [estas versiones] As they deserve. We are talking about a few weeks at the most, “said the developer at first.
Now Frogwares has published a message on Twitter where they talk about “good progress” with these consoles and the need to add a little more time “to polish and test the game on the old hardware to give the appropriate performance. This is our priority and we will do our best to ensure that the launch is quality and optimized. Thank you all for your understanding, patience and support. “
An ambitious game on a huge open map
Chapter One brings several novelties to the saga, among which an open world exploration stands out, a city that we can explore to find new cases and clues. “He has several positive decisions, starting with the choice of the young detective who allows exploring aspects of his personality and childhood that, although not strictly canon, brings freshness to the character”, we have in the analysis. “The open world, even if it is taken only as a route to go from one point to another, invites to discover new cases far from the main plot and it is still the concept of Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter but more elaborate. The most contentious issue – action – is literally optional. In short, a prequel that builds on the foundations of previous games and, although not all the novelties represent a real revolution in the usual formula of Frogwares, it will enchant fans of the saga “.
