Frogwares has announced the next instalment in its quietly beloved Sherlock Holmes series, and this time things are a bit different. This time Sherlock Holmes isn’t a regal looking middle age bloke, but a very debonnaire 21-year-old. Meanwhile, the game won’t take place in London like most Sherlock tales do: this time he’s investigating murders on a picturesque open world Mediterranean island. Some people have all the luck.

Like previous games in the series, Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One is a story-driven affair, but don’t expect a complete lack of bloodletting. Holmes can apparently “exploit the environment” in order to dispense of foes without directly killing them (because that means you didn’t kill them, of course). There’s weapons as well, but mostly you’ll be looking and listening.
