The team says that the game has now gone gold too, after months of uncertainty for the Ukrainian developer down to the country's ongoing war with neighbouring Russia.

As for the nature of the release itself, this Unreal Engine 4-based remake comes as a budget title on all platforms. Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened will cost $39.99 / £39.99 while a deluxe version featuring various chunks of DLC will cost $10 / £10 extra.

Here's a bit more about what to expect from the team's latest detective adventure:

"Sherlock Holmes The Awakened is a Cthulhu meets Sherlock Holmes detective horror adventure. The game acts as a continuation of young Sherlock’s story with Holmes and Watson undertaking their first major case together.

An Eldritch god-obsessed cult is making moves in the shadows to bring about a world-altering prophecy and it’s up to the young detective duo to thwart their plans."
