The new Call of Cthulhu looks promising

The horror.

The new Call of Cthulhu game continues to look promising.

Call of Cthulhu, from Blood Bowl and Styx: Master of Shadows developer Cyanide, is an RPG investigation game with psychological horror and stealth mechanics. It's based on H. P. Lovecraft's famously twisted universe.

Today, publisher Focus Home Interactive put out a new video that gives us a better idea of how Call of Cthulhu looks. The trailer depicts protagonist Pierce's descent into madness as he investigates a mysterious death on Darkwater Island, Boston.

Here's the official blurb:

  • A Private Detective, Edward Pierce is a mission to find the truth behind the death of an acclaimed artist and her family on a backwater island. Pierce is used to trusting his instincts, but with whale mutilations and disappearing bodies, this is only the beginning as reality becomes skewed.
  • As your investigation leads you closer to the sphere of influence of the Great Dreamer, you will start to doubt everything you see. You will have to find balance between your own sanity, and your determination in finding out what lurks in the shadows - as they say that madness is the only way that can bring you to the truth.
  • On a mission to find the truth behind the death of an acclaimed artist and her family on a backwater island, the player will soon uncover a more disturbing truth as the Great Dreamer, Cthulhu, prepares its awakening...

One to watch. Call of Cthulhu comes out this year on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
