Seasoned studio Cyanide brings a new horror game to consoles and PC. Call of Cthulhu is an RPG-investigation game, blending psychological horror and stealth mechanics in a deeply immersive world with an oppressive atmosphere. Today ushers in a new trailer, depicting protagonist Pierce’s submersion into the depths of madness, as he investigates a mysterious death on Darkwater Island, Boston.

In Call of Cthulhu, a Private Detective, Edward Pierce is on a mission to find the truth behind the death of an acclaimed artist and her family on a backwater island. Pierce is used to trusting his instincts, but with whale mutilations and disappearing bodies, this is only the beginning as reality becomes skewed. As his investigation leads him closer to the sphere of influence of the Great Dreamer, he soon starts to doubt everything he sees. Players will have to find balance between their own sanity and their determination in finding out what lurks in the shadows — as they say that madness is the only way that can bring you to the truth.
