Call of Cthulhu
Developed by Cyanide Studios, Call of Cthulhu is an "upcoming RPG-investigation game," according to the game's description. In the trailer, we see private investigation Edward Pierce slowly losing grip on reality, but left unsure whether or not the things he's seeing are hallucinations... or something more.
Call of Cthulhu, the official video game of the tabletop of the same name released a trailer this week showing off its new look.
From the trailer description:
"In today’s trailer, plunge into the troubled mind of private investigator Edward Pierce, as his perception of reality becomes more and more skewed the closer he gets to the Great Dreamer’s sphere of influence. Clutch to your withering sanity to discover the conspiracies, the cultists and otherworldly terrors that inhabit the twisted universe imagined by Lovecraft… it is said that madness is the only way that can bring you to the truth.
Sent to Darkwater Island to uncover the truth behind a mysterious death of a family, your original assignment spirals out of control against a backdrop of suspicious locals, mutilated whales, and disappearing bodies. Pierce’s 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. Trust no one. Creeping shadows hide lurking figures… and all the while, the Great Dreamer prepares for his awakening."
We aren't shown much in terms of gameplay, though we know it takes place in the first-person perspective. It looks to be a narrative investigation game, but it's unclear whether there are more types of gameplay.
Regardless, the trailer gives a very cinematic look at the game, capturing the creeping unknown of the Call of Cthulhu franchise.
Call of Cthulhu will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC
