Plunge into the deep horrors of the cosmic world created by HP Lovecraft as madness and Old Gods lurk at every corner, the 'Call Of Cthulhu' game is inspired by the classic pen and paper RPH by Chaosium.

Adding to the already fascinating mythos surrounding the stories by Lovecraft. These stories have generated a growing audience that gave birth to countless stories, movies, and video games since the original 'Call of Cthulhu' game. Cyanide’s new game is a survival horror roleplaying game with elements of stealth and investigation. As the title suggestions, it is inspired by the HP Lovecraft short story “The Call of Cthulhu.” 

You play as a private investigator Edward Pierce, sent to investigate the tragic death of the Hawkins Family in their mansion in Darkwater Island. There you will enter into a world in which your mind has to distinguish between reality and madness. It appears that not all meets the eye as Pierce is thrown into the world of conspiracies, cults, strange creatures and weird science that is part of the Lovecraft Mythos. Upon his investigation, the investigator discovers the impending doom of the entire world and the nearing revival of the Great God Cthulhu. 

As the game develops, it is up to the player to comprehend the madness and delve deeper into the conspiracy to find the secrets that plague Darkwater Island. Through overcoming horror and discovering secrets to expose what the truth of the Hawkins case was. 

'Call of Cthulhu' is an addition to the mythos like no other and will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
