Focus Home Interactive and Cyanide Studio were excited to share the E3 2016 trailer of the RPG-Investigation title, Call of Cthulhu, which is set to release in 2017 for consoles and PC. In this title, Cyanide Studio brings the disturbing world to life while the Great Dreamer, Cthulhu, prepares its awakening. Here is a glimpse at some of what awaits you:
And here’s a quick description of the game, courtesy of the official press release:
In Call of Cthulhu, players will control Edward Pierce, a former veteran and private investigator in 1920s Boston. Pierce will be investigating the tragic and mysterious death of Sarah Hawkins and her family in Darkwater Island. The game’s E3 Trailer showcases this disturbing Island and the eerie Hawkins Family Mansion, and gives a glimpse at how the intensity of the investigation will slowly start chipping away at 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!
Will Call of Cthulhu be able to live up to the Cthulhu Mythos?
