Watch private detective Edward Pierce deal with his own madness in the new trailer for Call of Cthulhu.
There’s been a new Call of Cthulhu game in the works at Cyanide Studios for a while. Announced early last year, the game will follow the story of private detective Edward Pierce, who is investigating the death of a famous artist and her family on Darkwater Island.
The official description reads,
“Pierce is used to trusting his instincts, but with whale mutilations and disappearing bodies, this is only the beginning as reality becomes skewed. As your investigation leads you closer to the sphere of influence of the Great Dreamer, you will start to doubt everything you see. You will have to find balance between your own sanity, and your determination in finding out what lurks in the shadows – as they say that madness is the only way that can bring you to the truth.”
There’s still no firm release date for Call of Cthulhu, and this is just the second trailer that’s been released. That said, it appears to be shaping up to be appropriately creepy. It’s scheduled to release in 2017 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
