Ukrainian developer Frogwares has today released the final paid DLC for Sherlock Holmes Chapter One, ‘M For Mystery’ drawing a line under the game's add-on offerings, following the release of the ‘Beyond a Joke’ mission. The studio managed to release the new content, despite the ongoing war in Ukraine, with “external partners and a handful of remote-based staff” making it possible.
“Put simply, we need to keep the studio alive and functioning to the best of our abilities now more than ever. Nobody on the team is expected to work, only those who can and want to,” Frogwares CEO Wael Amr writes in a statement. “Some on the team have become full-time volunteers in the humanitarian efforts around the country. Others have joined the defence forces."
Amr adds that other members of the Frogware team have moved to safer locations abroad or in other parts of Ukraine where they're working remotely. “We continue to pay all of these people on the team. For those fighting or volunteering, each of their spots on the team will be waiting for them at the end of the war," Amr added. “But essentially it is through a collection of staff that either fled Ukraine to neighbouring EU countries and those who have relocated to safer areas who are keeping Frogwares going right now.”
The M For Mystery DLC for Sherlock Holmes Chapter One is available now for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC, seeing Sherlock on the trail of a shadowy figure known only as ‘M’. A master spy and saboteur, M has outsmarted one of Mycroft's agents to steal confidential documents, and it falls to Holmes to face the cunning spy in a new, 2-hour+ DLC mission.
You can get the M For Mystery DLC for Sherlock Holmes Chapter One with the Deluxe Edition of the game, standalone for $9.99/£8.99, or grab it with the Season Pass for $24.99/£21.99 and gain access to a total of four additional missions.
