Watch 17 minutes of Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter gameplay

Features a playable street urchin.

Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter will launch on 27th May for PC, PS4 and Xbox One and its first gameplay footage has just now been released.

The following 17-minute video - cut together from B-roll footage by AllGamesDelta - takes us through the basics of Sherlock's day-to-day sleuthing. We get to see him establish a mental profile of people via the player making choices as to what certain details about their appearance means, along with some light eavesdropping and stealth from the perspective of a scrappy street urchin.

It's not much to go on, but this is the first time we've seen what the game looks like in action.

Perhaps The Devil's Daughter has been getting less publicity as Frogwares is concurrently working on its non-Sherlock Lovecraftian adventure The Sinking City.

Eurogamer contributor Stace Harman rather liked Frogwares' previous Sherlock Holmes game, Crimes and Punishments, upon its 2014 release.
