All Articles: Call of Cthulhu
Previously penciled in for “TBA 2017” release dates, Focus Home Interactive updated their official website over the weekend and confirmed that Call of Cthulhu and Vampyr will both launch in Fall 2017.
Call of Cthulhu, based on the tabletop RPG of the same name from Chaosium, is an adventure game from Cyanide Studio. Players will guide a detective in his search for a missing woman on a mysterious island, but things aren’t what they seem, and one of Lovecraft’s most famous creations, Cthulhu, lurks in the shadows.
Vampyr is in development at Dontnod, and is an action RPG set against the backdrop of a Spanish Flu outbreak in London in the early 20th century. As Dr. Jonathan Reid, players will be tested by their vampiric bloodlust, and characters they choose to feed on will “impact in a meaningful way the world that surrounds you.”
Call of Cthulhu and Vampyr are both currently in development for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
If you’re allergic to dread and menace, I would suggest skipping the latest trailer for Cyanide’s game adaptation of Call of Cthulhu. But if not, dive right in, and experience a glimpse at some of the creepier themes from H.P. Lovecraft’s fiction.
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.
Call of Cthulhu will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One sometime this year.
“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
This E3 2016 trailer for Cyanide’s Call of Cthulhu adaptation opens with a quote from Lovecraft himself, and it couldn’t be more appropriate for the creepy atmosphere that follows. Based partly on Chaosium’s RPG of the same name, Call of Cthulhu will follow Edward Pierce to Darkwater Island as he investigates the death of Sarah Hawkins:
Call of Cthulhu will offer an RPG-Investigation title, packed with psychological horror and stealth mechanics. Cyanide Studio brings to life a disturbing world that players will have to explore and investigate while Cthulhu, the Great Dreamer, prepares its awakening. Today’s E3 Trailer offers but a glimpse at all that awaits you.
Insanity and the Cthulhu Mythos have long been entwined – as your investigation brings you closer to Cthulhu’s sphere of influence, madness will progressively engulf your senses, leaving you to increasingly question what is real and what is illusory. They say that madness is the only way that can bring you to the truth and you will have to balance your sanity against your determination to discover it!
Focus Home Interactive will publish Call of Cthulhu for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One in 2017… which is also the 100th anniversary of the completion of Lovecraft’s first short stories, The Tomb and Dagon.
Like an eldritch horror slowly stirring from its slumber, Cyanide Studio continues to tease images from their Call of Cthulhu adaptation, which will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One in 2017. Based on Chaosium’s tabletop RPG of the same name, two more screenshots of bloodcurdling horror were released by the developer, alongside this official description of the game:
In Call of Cthulhu, players will control Edward Pierce, a former veteran and private investigator in 1920s Boston. Pierce will be investigating the tragic and mysterious death of Sarah Hawkins and her family in Darkwater Island. Today’s images give you a first glimpse of the locations players will have to visit: from the sinister docks, to the manor of the deceased family, Call of Cthulhu offers a dark and oppressive ambiance that shall pay tribute to Lovecraft’s work and universe. Indeed, this banal investigation might lead you to more sinister forces and darker secrets buried deep within Darkwater Island.
You can find the new screenshots (which, if I’m being honest, aren’t that bloodcurdling) after the break. (more…)
Cyanide Studios has announced they’ll tap into H.P. Lovecraft’s tales of the Old Ones for their next game, a Call of Cthulhu adaptation they plan to release for consoles and the PC in 2017. We know that Call of Cthulhu will be an “RPG-Investigation game with psychological horror and stealth mechanics,” but the rest of the game is still shrouded in mystery… much like the beings at the center of Lovecraft’s writing. However, Cyanide did share a bit more before disappearing back into the shadows:
Developed by seasoned studio Cyanide, Call of Cthulhu is an RPG-Investigation game with psychological horror and stealth mechanics, set in a deeply immersive world. On a mission to find the truth behind the death of an acclaimed artist and her family on a backwater island, the player will soon uncover a more disturbing truth as the Great Dreamer, Cthulhu, prepares its awakening…
Call of Cthulhu will be published by Focus Home Interactive and you can glimpse the first screenshots after the break. (more…)
