Call of Cthulhu E3 2017 Trailer Embraces the Madness

In a press release, Focus Home Interactive has revealed the E3 2017 trailer for Cyanide Studio’s (Styx series)”RPG-investigation” game, Call of Cthulhu.

As one can expect, a lot of creepiness awaits private investigator and game protagonist, Edward Pierce, as his trek to Darkwater Island to uncover the truth behind the mysterious death of a family spirals out of control and into madness.

Plunge into the troubled mind of private investigator Edward Pierce, as his perception of reality becomes more and more skewed the closer he gets to the Great Dreamer’s sphere of influence. Clutch to your withering sanity to discover the conspiracies, the cultists and otherworldly terrors that inhabit the twisted universe imagined by Lovecraft… it is said that madness is the only way that can bring you to the truth.


Sent to Darkwater Island to uncover the truth behind a mysterious death of a family, your original assignment spirals out of control against a backdrop of suspicious locals, mutilated whales, and disappearing bodies. Pierce’s 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.
