Call of Cthulhu, the official videogame adaptation of Chaosium’s pen-and-paper RPG, has gone Gold, ready for its release on October 30th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Today, Focus Home interactive introduces a Preview to Madness trailer for a taste of the press’ first impressions, joined by a dose of Lovecraftian madness.
With Call of Cthulhu releasing in one week we are currently working our way through the early hours of Detective Pierce’s haunting investigation. So our review will be going live on October 30th. Today’s trailer explores praise for the game’s distinctly Lovecraftian atmosphere, mesmerizing audio and visual design, as well as the RPG-investigation mechanics that allow players to discover clues, draw conclusions, question locals, and survive the island’s cosmic horrors.
In Call of Cthulhu, nothing is as it seems. Terrible creatures, conspiracies and cults await on Darkwater Island, lining the path to the horrifying truth behind the island. Pierce’s mind will suffer – solving the case will bring him to brink of insanity, to a place where death may appear the most favorable outcome. The player’s senses will be challenged to the point of questioning whether everything and everyone is real or illusory. Creeping shadows hide lurking figures… and all the while, the Great Dreamer prepares for his awakening.
