In the middle of all the E3 madness, it’s easy to overlook another kind of madness. Cyanide Studio has released its Call of Cthulhu E3 2018 trailer and it really is superbly mad. Check it out above.
Call of Cthulhu is, of course, inspired inspired by Chaosium’s classic pen and paper RPG. The game invites players to uncover eerie mysteries as they descend deep into “a world of cosmic horrors, creeping madness, and shrouded Old Gods within Lovecraft’s iconic universe.”
1924. 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…
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 slated to arrive sometime during 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Yeah, unfortunately they still aren’t ready to give us a more precise release date.
