    Sent to Darkwater Island to uncover the truth behind a mysterious death of a family, your original assignment spirals out of control against a backdrop of suspicious locals, mutilated whales, and disappearing bodies. Pierce’s mind will suffer - balancing a razor-thin line between sanity and madness, your senses will be disrupted until you question the reality of everything around you. Trust no one. Creeping shadows hide lurking figures… and all the while, the Great Dreamer prepares for his awakening.

    Call of Cthulhu will release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

    Wasn't there a Call of Cthulhu game before? Is this a remake or something?

    I'm super hype for this! I for one loved DCOTE! Perfect time to read up on some more HP Lovecraft before this drops!

    Don't expect RE7 from it, or anything like it.

    There was Call of Cthulu Dark Corners of the Earth on the OG Xbox and PC that was really good.
    This is nothing to do with that though.

    Better have dark Lovecraftian horror out the ass, otherwise it doesn't deserve that title

    Edit: Just watched the trailer, looks like we're gonna be ok on that front

    That's kind of how I feel about it. Without the whole H.P. Lovecraft feel, it wouldn't feel right...

    The game messed up Lovecraft lore really bad.
    Lovecraft mythos is the basis of all high fantasy, which specify a hierarchy with different levels of gods and monsters, and all that. In this hierarchy, though Culthulu appears god like, it, along with the great old ones, are as much worthless as us in face of greater beings. Sadly most works afterward does not go deep cause at if you go deep into Lovecraft you will realize even metaphysics "is an illusion".

    this looks fantastic. I hope it doesn't implement the insanity system such as in insomnia. it's really annoying after a while.

    Looks really good.
    I have been constructing a Lovecraft game in my head for the past year or so, based on the board game "Arkham Horror".
