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.
Today, the developer released the beta footage showcased to the press at Gamescom 2018. The title looks incredibly dark and terrifying. The first-person perspective enhances immersion and dread because you never know what's around the corner. You can watch the hour-long footage with developer commentary below.
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.
Call of Cthulhu is currently available for physical and digital preorder on Xbox One for $59.99. The title is expected to launch on October 30, 2018. It's unclear if the game features Xbox One X enhancements. Usually these titles end up looking "soupy" on base hardware so upgrading it for Microsoft's new machine would be a nice touch.
