“The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.” – H.P. Lovecraft
Originally teased at E3 last year, developer Cyanide Studios’ Lovecraftian game Call of Cthulhu is finally headed our way soon, and today brings a brand new trailer out of this year’s E3. The RPG-Investigation game, set in a deeply immersive world with an oppressive atmosphere, blends psychological horror and stealth mechanics.
In the game…
A Private Detective, Edward Pierce is 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 your investigation leads you closer to the sphere of influence of the Great Dreamer, you will start to doubt everything you see. You will have to find balance between your own sanity, and your 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.
The player will soon uncover a more disturbing truth as Cthulhu prepares its awakening.
Check out the new trailer, depicting Pierce’s submersion into the depths of madness.
