Call of Cthulhu is a game inspired by Chaosium's classic pen and paper adventure. According to 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.
Updated July 18, 2018: Call of Cthulhu's developer confirmed that the game should launch on October 30 for Xbox One and other platforms.
Beforehand, we knew that Call of Cthulhu was launching in 2018, but we weren't sure exactly when. Luckily, it seems like an overeager Steam employee may have leaked it. According to the website, Call of Cthulhu should launch on October 30, 2018. That's a Tuesday so it's not out of the realm of possibility. As with any such leak, treat it with a grain of salt until we receive official confirmation. We've reached out to Focus Home Interactive for comment and shall update you as soon as we get a response.
The plot 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. The trail leads Pierce to a terrifying world of conspiracies and supernatural threats.
Call of Cthulhu is currently available for preorder on Xbox One for $59.99. The game was scheduled to launch in 2017 but was pushed back to this year.
