Lovecraftian Horror RPG Call of Cthulhu Headed To Consoles

By Mark Delaney, 10 months ago
Pen and paper gamers should be well-versed in the horrors of H.P. Lovecraft-inspired Call of Cthulhu, and now console gamers will get to take part in the horrors of the unknown in Cyanide's RPG coming next year.

The studio calls the game an "RPG-Investigation game with psychological horror and stealth mechanics, set in a deeply immersive world." Fans of the mythos know just how deep the story universe goes and for that to come to consoles is a very promising idea. Details are sparse at this time, but both Cyanide and publisher Focus Home Interactive's enthusiasm is through the roof as evidenced by statements alongside the game's announcement. The game is being built on Unreal Engine 4, while the story was teased in the announcement, as well.
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...
Alongside that comes a pair of atmospheric screens below.



Only the phrase "consoles" was used when the announcement was made, so while we have to wait to confirm an Xbox One release, such a result seems likely. We'll provide more news with that info as soon as we can.
