Call of Cthulhu launches on Xbox One and PC

Call of Cthulhu is a game inspired by the classic pen and paper adventure. According to developer Cyanide Studio, players uncover chilling mysteries, descending deep into a world of cosmic horrors, creeping madness, and shrouded "Old Gods" within Lovecraft's iconic universe. The gameplay is reminiscent of titles like Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter because it focuses on investigations.

Call of Cthulhu follows private investigator Edward Pierce as he is sent to evaluate the tragic death of the Hawkins family in their mansion. Everyone has been slaughtered. The mansion is located on the dangerous Darkwater Island, just off the coast of Boston. Between unhelpful locals and questionable police reports, it becomes clear that there's more to the case than what's being let on by everyone. According to the developer, the trail leads Pierce to a terrifying world of conspiracies and supernatural threats.

The title is now available on Xbox One and PC for $59.99. The game also features Xbox One X enhancements.

  • This sounds very similar to an old GameCube title - Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem - which was a fantastic game. Looking forward to this one.
  • Eternal Darkness was a great game. But Cthulhu games tend to, more often than not, end with death and/or insanity for the Player Character. Not sure if the CoC game does that, and how well it will play with video gamers if it does.
