Arriving just in the nick of time for Halloween, Cyanide Studio’s promising looking horror adventure Call of Cthulhu is out this coming Tuesday, October 30th. Ahead of then, you can get an idea for what all the fuss is about by wrapping your eyes around the Call of Cthulhu launch trailer. Don’t take that literally though, that’s exactly what The Great Dreamer would want you to do. If it cared one jot about your pointless existence in an infinite universe of nothingness, that is.
Cyanide Studio’s Call of Cthulhu has gone gold, publisher Focus Home Interactive has confirmed. The video game adaptation of Chaosium’s pen-and-paper RPG, itself based on H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos, is now ready to launch on October 30th for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
At the end of this month, fans of Lovecraftian horror should be in with a treat when Call of Cthulhu arrives from Cyanide Studio. Cosmic horror meets murder investigation in an adventure RPG set on the magnificently foreboding Darkwater Island. Wrestle with your own sanity as you encounter strange creatures, murderous cults, and perhaps even the Great Dreamer itself. We're getting ahead of ourselves though, before plunging into insanity, here are the official Call of Cthulhu PC specs.
Cyanide Studio and publisher Focus Home Interactive have unveiled a new gameplay trailer for the upcoming Call of Cthulhu, a psychological horror adventure game based on H.P. Lovecraft’s twisted fever dreams.
Focus Home Interactive has dropped a new trailer for Cyanide’s Call of Cthulhu, a Lovecraftian horror adventure game based upon the pen and RPG of the same name. In the footage, we discover a little more about how the investigation elements come into play, as well as how Edward Pierce can use his knowledge and skills of manipulation to worm his way out of life-threatening situations.
While there hasn’t been an official announcement just yet, the Call of Cthulhu: The Official Video Game Steam page has been updated with a concrete release date.
The human mind is a fragile thing. That’s a thought I had as I sat through my eight E3 press conference, my mind a haze of forgotten announcements and a murky acknowledgment that every game is set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland these days. I vaguely remember some saying about life and art.
Today we’ve been treated to the first gameplay from Call of Cthulhu, the new first-person survival horror RPG that’s now under development at Cyanide. Up until now, it wasn’t hugely clear how the RPG elements would slot into place, but in the trailer, we can see a proper skill tree here character points can be invested into abilities like forensics, lockpicking, psychology, and discovering hidden objects at crime scenes.
It always had the creeping air of inevitability, but Focus Home Interactive’s Call of Cthulhu has become the latest victim to slip into 2018. The Lovecraftian horror RPG-investigation game will now avoid the dreaded holiday crush, a wise move on all accounts.
Turning up a little late to the E3 part, Cyanide Studios and Focus Home Interactive have revealed some of the first gameplay footage to be taking from cosmic horror adventure game Call of Cthulhu. Private investigator Edward Pierce has travelled to a shadowy island after reports of the death of an entire family. He’s trying to uncover the truth behind the events while his perception of reality becomes ever more twisted, the Great Dreamer wielding its influence over him
The number of decent Lovecraftian video games is disappointingly small, although you won’t see me complaining about Bloodborne. Every time we see it, Call of Cthulhu looks like it could be another one to buck the trend however. There’s a mind-bending new trailer out for it full of mutilated whales, tentacled faces and a fella who claws his own eyes out so he doesn’t have to witness the cosmic horror unfold. Mmmhmm.
