Call of Cthulhu Has Survival Horror Fans Intrigued
Call of Cthulhu, a first-person survival horror RPG being developed by Cyanide Studio, is going to be demoed next month at E3, according to an official announcement made on Tuesday.
“Lovecraft’s twisted universe comes alive in an exclusive walkthrough guided by the developers from Cyanide,” the announcement from publisher Focus Home Interactive read.
In Call of Cthulhu, players take control of an investigator named Edward Pierce who is looking into the murder of an entire family that lived in a mansion on the isolated Darkwater Island. During his investigation, he uncovers a conspiracy that involves the awakening of Cthulhu and a group of cultists.
Described as an RPG set in a semi-open world, Call of Cthulhu is a game where players can find solutions to their problems without resorting to violence. “Despite his experience in the Great War, Pierce is not a fighter, and you will need to find solutions to your problems that don’t involve a fist fight or gunning down the inhabitants,” says the game’s official website.
Other Focus Home Interactive games that’ll be shown at E3 include Insurgency: Sandstorm, The Surge 2, Farming Simulator 19, A Plague Tale: Innocence and GreedFall. One of their upcoming games, Vampyr, launches next Tuesday and nearly an hour of gameplay was streamed recently.
Call of Cthulhu is currently scheduled to release this year and will be available on the PC, Xbox One and PS4.
