Publisher Focus Home Interactive and developer Cyanide Studio announced that Call of Cthulhu, the official videogame inspired by Chaosium’s classic pen and paper RPG, will launch on the 30th of October. Along with a release date, four new screenshots were revealed that give us a glimpse of what’s to come across this deep, single-player story.
Call of Cthulhu will take players to Darkwater Island, a grim, disturbing place and let them control Edward Pierce, a former war veteran and private investigator in 1920s Boston. He will be investigating the tragic and mysterious death of Sarah Hawkins, an acclaimed artist who has recently moved with her husband and their family to Darkwater Island. This banal investigation might indeed lead you to more sinister forces and darker secrets buried deep within Darkwater Island.
In this world, nothing is as it seems. Sanity is an irregular bedfellow, all too often replaced by the whisperings in the dark. Strange creatures, weird science, and shadowy cults dominate the Cthulhu Mythos, intent on realizing their mad schemes to bring about the end of everything. Your mind will suffer - balancing a razor-thin line between sanity and madness, your senses will be disrupted until you question the reality of everything around you. Creeping shadows hide lurking figures… and all the while, the Great Dreamer prepares for his awakening.
Call of Cthulhu will be available for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
