Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened, an H.P Lovecraft-inspired horror game, is receiving a complete remake. The remake is launching on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch in 2023. 

The official reveal trailer for the Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened remake showcases the updated and high-definition graphics and the enhanced gameplay and soundtrack.

Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened is a Lovecraft and Conan Doyle crossover that puts players in the shoes of a young Sherlock Holmes. He is up against a dangerous and evil group that worships a terrifying deity called Cthulhu. 

What initially began as a disappearance case, Sherlock is coming to learn that they aren’t alone in this world. There are ancient and terrifying beings waiting to destroy everything and everyone if they’re given a chance. Sherlock must uncover, expose, and stop the cult’s plans or face terrible consequences.

While this game was initially released in 2008, it is undergoing a complete remake. The only element that will be kept from the original game is the storyline, which will be modified to connect with the case from The Awakened to a younger Sherlock Holmes.

The features coming to Sherlock Holmes: The Awakening includes:

  • New graphics and assets were made in Unreal Engine 4.
  • Cut scene overhauls.
  • Extra gameplay elements and mechanics for investigations.
  • The story of Watson and Holmes will be rewritten and become more in-depth.
  • Cases will receive minor story rewrites.
  • Extra side quests will be added.
  • New English voice recordings and multiple language translations will be available.
  • Complete UI overhaul.
  • Mind-bending insanity puzzles that will have you questioning reality.
  • The camera will change to a 3rd-person camera perspective.
  • A semi-open world structure set across several drastically different locations: Victorian London, a Swiss psych ward, New Orleans, Louisiana bayous, and Scotland.
