The adventure Sherlock Holmes The Awakened from the Ukrainian studio Frogwares was released on April 11, 2023, on all platforms.
We will remind you that Sherlock Holmes The Awakened is a reimagining of the 2007 game of the same name, which Frogwares started working on after the start of a full-scale invasion. The game is completely redesigned on the Unreal Engine and is distinguished not only by modern graphics and animations but also by an expanded storyline, numerous side missions, and new mechanics, including a unique game mode with madness.
You can try Sherlock Holmes The Awakened on PC (Steam, Epic Games Store, GOG), PlayStation 4/5, Xbox One / Xbox Series S|X and Nintendo Switch. The cost of the standard Steam edition for Ukraine is UAH 910.
The extended edition of the game, which also includes a set of side quests “Whispered Dreams” and a set of desktop wallpapers, costs UAH 1,099. The full edition, which, in addition to the previous bonuses, also includes the soundtrack and art book Sherlock Holmes The Awakened has a price tag of UAH 1,250.
Both critics and players welcomed the new game from Frogwares. Sherlock Holmes The Awakened has an average rating from OpenCritic 74/100, and if we take only influential and large publications, then even 79/100. Players on Steam are even more positive – 93/100, but it should be taken into account that there are mostly reviews from Ukrainians. We plan to publish our own review of Sherlock Holmes The Awakened soon.
