Fans of the Call of Cthulhu patiently waiting for the new game to launch next month on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 from October 30th 2018 onwards. Are sure to enjoy this 60 minute gameplay trailer which has been published by developer Cyanide.
Cyanide’s Call of Cthulhu is the official video game adaptation of publisher Chaosium’s classic pen and paper RPG. “Faced with terrors beyond human comprehension, you must delve deep into the secrets that lay beneath the surface of the Darkwater Island community. Speak with the island’s inhabitants, overcome deadly horrors and discover cryptic clues, in a desperate attempt to expose the terrible truth at the heart of the Hawkins case.”
“Investigation comes in many forms. Will you talk to characters to learn their secrets, or look around on your own? A friendly ally may provide a much-needed distraction or reveal a path to progress but picking a lock or stealing a key is equally viable.”
“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. Despite his experience in the Great War, Pierce is not a fighter, and you will need to find solutions to your problems that don’t involve a fist fight or gunning down the inhabitants.
Hidden passageways, nightmarish asylums, illegal bars, and seemingly-abandoned warehouses make up Darkwater’s scattered geography. Originally supported by a now long-dead whaling industry, the island is home to only desperate old sailors and decaying families of old money with nowhere else to go. They do not like outsiders.”
