New screenshots released for the official video game adaptation of Call of Cthulhu

Focus Home Interactive has released five new screenshots for the official video game adaptation of Chaosium’s pen and paper RPG, Call of Cthulhu. These new screenshots showcase the horrifying locals and locales of Darkwater Island.

In Call of Cthulhu, players step into the shoes of Edward Pierce as they investigate the tragic death of Sarah Hawkins, and push their sanity to the limit to uncover the disturbing truth in this RPG/Investigation game blending psychological horror and stealth mechanics.

Driven by the idea that mankind is irrelevant in an uncaring universe filled with inconceivable horrors, Lovecraft’s dark works have captured imaginations across the world for close to a century. Call of Cthulhu promises to fully embrace these fundamentals, pitting players in a desperate struggle against powers that defy human comprehension.

To uncover the disturbing truth of Darkwater Island, players will venture a deadly path to the very brink of insanity – a concept tightly tied to the Cthulhu Mythos. As their investigation leads them closer to the sphere of influence of the Great Dreamer, they will start to doubt everything they see.

Players will have to find balance between their own sanity, and their 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.

Call of Cthulhu is planned for a 2017 release.
