Things have been slow going for Cyanide Studio’s Call of Cthulhu. The game’s been in development for a while now, and only just got its website last month. But now, with E3 winding down, the team have released a much-needed lore trailer that adheres pretty pretty close to the original Lovecraft story.
The official synopsis goes like this: “Faced with terrors beyond human comprehension, you must delve deep into the secrets that lay beneath the surface of the Darkwater Island community. Speak with the island’s inhabitants, overcome deadly horrors, and discover cryptic clues, in a desperate attempt to expose the terrible truth at the heart of the Hawkins case.
Multiple paths lay ahead for you to choose from – your development of Pierce’s skills and the relationships you have with other characters will directly impact how you proceed in your investigation. This is no easy task however, as certain events may cause Pierce to develop mental traumas that impact his ability to cope, while the descent into the occult will cause his sanity to rapidly dwindle.”
Call of Cthulhu releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2018.
