Get your magnifying glass out and ready, as the Sherlock Holmes The Awakened release date has finally been revealed alongside the announcement that the game has officially gone gold.

Now, what does it mean when a game goes gold? It means that work on the game's code has concluded, excluding possible day-one patches. Frogwares, the Ukrainian developer of the latest addition to the Sherlock Homles series, has confirmed that the game has officially gone gold and that they will be taking their time to prepare the game for its release on multiple platforms on April 11, 2023. 

For those who may not be familiar with Sherlock Holmes The Awakened, the game is teeming with intricate puzzles and problem-solving. As we know from the movies and even TV shows that are centered around Sherlock and his friend Watson, the duo can be found solving crimes and catching bad guys by piecing clues together in an unconventional but effective way. The game takes players to a Lovecraftian world where they take on the role of Sherlock Holmes who has just found himself in the heart of the Cthulhu Mythos.

People are going missing left and right, and you have reason to believe a dark cult is the main culprit behind all of this mayhem within Europe. It is up to you to find the cause of these disappearances, uncover the truth about the ancient God that this cult worships, and stop the threat before an unspeakable fate befalls you. 

Sherlock Holmes The Awakened is set to release on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and the Nintendo Switch with three different versions of the game available for pre-order and at launch; Standard, Deluxe, and Premium Edition. Those who do choose to pre-order will receive three custom outfits for both Holmes and Watson as a bonus.
