popular table top RPG system Call of Cthulhu will soon be coming to PC’s near you. Focus home interactive, makers of other great simulation titles like Blood Bowl, Farming Simulator, and Battle Fleet Gothic, are now now bringing their talents for adapting table-top games to Call of Cthulhu. Fans of the system might remember that there was an earlier adaptation taking in 2006 headed up by none other than Bethesda (Elder Scrolls, Fall Out) along with Ubisoft and 2K games. This adaptation however is different, as it is an RPG-Investigation title, packed with psychological horror and stealth mechanics. Rather than a shooter.
In Call of Cthulhu, players will control Edward Pierce, a former veteran and private investigator in 1920s Boston. Pierce will be investigating the tragic and mysterious death of Sarah Hawkins and her family in Darkwater Island. The game’s E3 Trailer showcases this disturbing Island and the eerie Hawkins Family Mansion, and gives a glimpse at how the intensity of the investigation will slowly start chipping away at your Sanity. Insanity and the Cthulhu Mythos have long been entwined – as your investigation brings you closer to Cthulhu’s sphere of influence, madness will progressively engulf your senses, leaving you to increasingly question what is real and what is illusory.
