Call of Cthulhu E3 2016 trailer

First look at Cyanide's upcoming Cthulhu game.

Call of Cthulhu

Focus Home Interactive and Cyanide have released the E3 2016 trailer for Call of Cthulhu.

The 2017-due RPG-investigation title promises to be “packed” with psychological horror and stealth mechanics, and take place in a world where players will have to explore and investigate as Cthulhu, “the Great Dreamer,” prepares his awkaening.

Here’s a rundown, via Focus Home Interactive:

In Call of Cthulhu, players will control Edward Pierce, a former veteran and private investigator in 1920s Boston. Pierce will be investigating the tragic and mysterious death of Sarah Hawkins and her family in Darkwater Island. The game’s E3 Trailer showcases this disturbing Island and the eerie Hawkins Family Mansion, and gives a glimpse at how the intensity of the investigation will slowly start chipping away at your Sanity.

Insanity and the Cthulhu Mythos have long been entwined – as your investigation brings you closer to Cthulhu’s sphere of influence, madness will progressively engulf your senses, leaving you to increasingly question what is real and what is illusory. They say that madness is the only way that can bring you to the truth and you will have to balance your sanity against your determination to discover it!
