Ahead of this year's E3, Focus Home Interactive has pushed out a somewhat eerie trailer for the horror RPG Call of Cthulhu.
Initially announced two years ago, this video game is inspired by the work of American horror fiction writer H.P. Lovecraft.
Call of Cthulhu, which is currently being developed by France-based Cyanide Studio, is a video game adaptation of Chaosium's tabletop RPG of the same name. For the uninitiated, Cyanide is the studio behind the video games Game of Thrones, Blood Bowl and Styx: Master of Shadows.
Developed for PC and gaming consoles (PlayStation 4 and Xbox One), Call of Cthulhu is poised to be officially released to the public in the coming year.
As to what this new game will offer to players, Call of Cthulhu is described in an official press release as an "RPG-Investigation title" that comes with "stealth mechanics" along with "psychological horror." As such, players have to make their sanity ready for the 2017 official release of this game.
"Cyanide Studio brings to life a disturbing world that players will have to explore and investigate while Cthulhu, the Great Dreamer, prepares its awakening," says Focus Home Interactive. "Today's E3 Trailer offers but a glimpse at all that awaits you."
Set in 1920 in Boston, the game lets gamers take on the role of the protagonist Edward Pierce, a former veteran who is now a private investigator. Players will be tasked to investigate the terrible and mystifying death of Sarah Hawkins and her family at their mansion in the creepy Darkwater Island.
The E3 trailer, according to Focus Home Interactive, provides a sneak peek "at how the intensity of the investigation will slowly start chipping away at your Sanity."
Players have to make note that in this particular game, staying sane is a big concern.
As of press time, the video has already notched more than 400,000 views on YouTube, suggesting that a lot of gamers across the globe might be curious about what this new title has to offer.
"I do hope we get a little bit of Gameplay, so we can get an idea on what this game is gonna be like," comments a YouTube user.
"Looks awesome, my hype is in the Stars for this game," says another user.
Another user thinks that this new offering from Focus Home Interactive is "the most interesting upcoming game."
It is worth mentioning that Call of Cthulhu is being built using Unreal Engine 4. Not much else is known about the game at the moment. We'll likely know more details in the coming E3.
