Focus Home Interactive has released the official E3 2018 trailer for Call of Cthulhu; the official videogame inspired by Chaosium’s classic pen and paper RPG. This trailer uncovers the chilling mysteries of the Narrative RPG game, descending deep into a world of cosmic horrors, creeping madness, and shrouded Old Gods within Lovecraft’s iconic universe.
In Call of Cthulhu players assume the role of private investigator Edward Pierce who 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 and soon 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.”
Call of Cthulhu is scheduled for a 2018 release.
