Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter for PC, PS4 and XONE is – excluding exclusive titles for Nintendo handhelds – the ninth full-fledged installment of the popular series about the adventures of the most famous detective of all times. The game was developed by Frogwares - the studio responsible for all the games of the series that have been published since 2002, which now is working under the wings of the new publisher - Bigben Interactive co. The game was presented for the first time at the end of October, 2015, during the annual Paris Games Week. In contrast to its predecessor which has arrived on PC as well as on the seventh and eighth generations of consoles, The Devil's Daughter was only published for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The plot of the game takes us traditionally to the streets of Victorian London, where we follow new adventures of the famous characters created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - detective Sherlock Holmes, and his inseparable friend - John Watson. There are five diverse cases of great complexity waiting to be solved. Our heroes will face, among others, dark family secrets and followers of a mysterious cult.
In terms of gameplay mechanics, Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter for PC, PS4 and XONE follows the direction set by the previous three installments of the series, developed with not only PC, but console players in mind as well. The game combines a lot of freedom in roaming the streets of London, with elements typical to adventure games, where the player has to solve various riddles. On top of that, there are sequences typical to action games. According to the latest standards, the game features a non-linear storyline that dynamically changes depending on the choices players make during the game.
As regards the visuals, The Devil’s Daughter for PC, PS4 and XONE is the most impressive installment of the series so far, thanks to developers' focus on the next-gen platforms. The graphics are extremely suggestive, and reflect the atmosphere of Victorian London perfectly.
