Arriving just in the nick of time for Halloween, Cyanide Studio’s promising looking horror adventure Call of Cthulhu is out this coming Tuesday, October 30th. Ahead of then, you can get an idea for what all the fuss is about by wrapping your eyes around the Call of Cthulhu launch trailer. Don’t take that literally though, that’s exactly what The Great Dreamer would want you to do. If it cared one jot about your pointless existence in an infinite universe of nothingness, that is.
Call of Cthulhu is an adaptation of Chaosium’s pen and paper RPG, itself based on the Cthulhu mythos dreamed up by a master of horror and all-around bad chap - H.P. Lovecraft.
“Call of Cthulhu casts you in that role - a struggling alcoholic, tortured by the past, haunted by PTSD and strange visions, Pierce is a dogged investigator with a desire to find the truth,” says publisher Focus Home Interactive.
“Contracted by the father of the late Sarah Hawkins to look into the mysterious fire that engulfed her mansion and killed her family, Pierce is immediately surrounded by distrustful locals and dead ends on Darkwater. Pressing on, his world begins to unravel as reality breaks down, and dreams become reality... All the while, the Great Dreamer prepares its awakening.”
Call of Cthulhu releases on October 30th for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 30th. We should have a review coming your way shortly.
