Publisher Focus Home Interactive released a new trailer for Call of Cthulhu: The Official Video Game today. Developed by Cyanide Studio, Call of Cthulhu explores the disturbing world of Cthulhu, the Great Dreamer.
You play as Edward Pierce, a former veteran and private investigator in 1920s Boston. Pierce goes to investivate the mysterious death of Sarah Hawkins and heir family at Darkwater Island. The trailer shows the island itself and the creepy Hawkins Family Mansion, and gives you a taste of how the investigation will slowly splinter your sanity.
“Insanity and the Cthulhu Mythos have long been entwined – as your investigation brings you closer to Cthulhu’s sphere of influence, madness will progressively engulf your senses, leaving you to increasingly question what is real and what is illusory. They say that madness is the only way that can bring you to the truth and you will have to balance your sanity against your determination to discover it!
The Cthulhu Mythos has grown to become one of the largest shared universes ever envisioned, giving birth to countless stories, novels, and even movies ever since the original publication of Lovecraft’s The Call of Cthulhu.”
Call of Cthulhu will release in 2017 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Check out the trailer down below.
