'Call of Cthulhu' (ALL) Confirms Release Date - Screens

by Rainier on July 18, 2018 @ 8:36 a.m. PDT

Call of Cthulhu is an RPG-investigation game with psychological horror and stealth mechanics, set in a deeply immersive world.

Step into the shoes of Edward Pierce as you investigate the tragic death of Sarah Hawkins, and push your sanity to the limit to uncover the disturbing truth in this RPG/Investigation game blending psychological horror and stealth mechanics.

You are Edward Pierce, a war veteran turned private detective, in the Boston of the 20s. You have been hired to investigate, on the isolated island of Darkwater, the unusual and tragic death of Sarah Hawkins and her family. Soon your investigation will lead you to the fringes of the paranormal, where reality and illusion begins to blend... or is this really the fruit of your imagination?


Yesterday Steam's Call of Cthulhu's page revealed an October 30, 2018 date, and today focus home confirmed that the game is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 30.

Digital pre-orders are available on PC (Steam), while retail pre-orders are available for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Driven by the idea that mankind is irrelevant in an uncaring universe filled with inconceivable horrors, Lovecraft's dark works have captured imaginations across the world for close to a century. Call of Cthulhu fully embraces these fundamentals, pitting you in a desperate struggle against powers that defy human comprehension. To uncover the disturbing truth of Darkwater Island, you will venture a deadly path to the very brink of insanity – a concept tightly tied to the Cthulhu Mythos. 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 Cthulhu Mythos has grown to become one of the largest shared universes ever envisioned, giving birth to countless stories, novels, and even movies ever since the original publication of Lovecraft's The Call of Cthulhu. This official adaptation of Chaosium's pen & paper RPG in video game form will offer an RPG-Investigation title, packed with psychological horror and stealth mechanics.

Between the haunting environments, twisted story, and the ever-looming threat of the Great Old Ones, Call of Cthulhu promises a darkly satisfying experience for Lovecraft fans and newcomers alike.
