Call of Cthulhu, the official videogame adaptation of Chaosium’s tabletop RPG, has gone gold in preparation for its release on October 30 for XBOX One. Today, dive into the Preview to Madness Trailer for a taste of the press’ first impressions, joined by a dose of Lovecraftian madness.
With Call of Cthulhu releasing in under two weeks, members of the press have already gotten their hands on the early hours of Detective Pierce’s haunting investigation across Darkwater Island. Today’s Preview to Madness Trailer explores praise for the game’s distinctly Lovecraftian atmosphere, mesmerizing audio and visual design, as well as the RPG-investigation mechanics that allow players to discover clues, draw conclusions, question locals and survive the island’s cosmic horrors.
In Call of Cthulhu, nothing is as it seems. Terrible creatures, conspiracies and cults await on Darkwater Island, lining the path to the horrifying truth behind the island. Pierce’s mind will suffer – solving the case will bring him to brink of insanity, to a place where death may appear the most favorable outcome. The player’s senses will be challenged to the point of questioning whether everything and everyone is real or illusory. Creeping shadows hide lurking figures… and all the while, the Great Dreamer prepares for his awakening.
Call of Cthulhu releases for Xbox One on October 30. Digital and retail preorders are available now !
