Just days before the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2016, Focus Home Interactive has released a trailer for Call of Cthulhu. The new video game is an adaptation of Chaosium Inc.‘s pen and paper Role Playing Game (RPG) of the same title.
Call of Cthulhu, based on Lovecraftian lore, will be an RPG-Investigation game that uses stealth mechanics. While traversing through a dark world, prepare for deep psychological horrors. Investigate brutal and mysterious murders while something dark and horrid prepares to awaken.
Players will control Edward Pierce, a former veteran and private investigator in 1920’s Boston. Edward will be investigating the mysterious death of Sarah Hawkins and her family in the haunting town of Darkwater Island.
The game was announced back in January of 2014 by Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishment developers, Frogwares. In February of this year, Cyanide Studios and Focus Home Entertainment took over and have developed the game for PC and consoles. As far as a release date goes, some time in 2017 is all we know at this time.
