If you’ve been wondering when you’d get to embark on the journey to madness in Call of Cthulhu, we’re got some great news. The official Call of Cthulhu release date has been announced and the game is releasing on October 30th, 2018 for PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One. Developed by Cyanide and published by Focus Home Interactive, Call of Cthulhu is a game inspired by the mythos, with deduction and other skills necessary in order to navigate a dangerous world filled with horrors.
Here’s the E3 2018 trailer:
1924. Private Investigator Edward Pierce is sent to investigate the tragic death of the Hawkins family in their imposing mansion on the isolated Darkwater Island, off the shores of Boston. Between unfriendly locals and dubious police reports, it becomes clear there’s more to the case than meets the eye. Soon enough, Pierce is plunged into a terrifying world of conspiracies, cultists, and cosmic horrors…
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. Trust no one. Creeping shadows hide lurking figures… and all the while, the Great Dreamer prepares for his awakening.
I’m a fan of Lovecraftian-inspired works, so this is definitely on my radar. With that said, I do have to wonder about releasing it in an already-packed Fall 2018. Hopefully it’ll find the type of enthusiastic audience it needs.
