Cyanide Studio and Focus Home Interactive unveil Call of Cthulhu with first information and images
H. P. Lovecraft's famously twisted universe will be coming alive on consoles and PC in 2017, in the official video game adaptation of Chaosium's pen & paper RPG Call of Cthulhu. The Cthulhu Mythos has grown to become one of the largest shared universes ever envisioned, giving birth to countless stories, novels, and even movies ever since the original publication of Lovecraft's The Call of Cthulhu. Today, discover the game's first screenshots, which showcase the dark, oppressive ambiance of the game's semi-open environments built in Unreal Engine 4.
Developed by seasoned studio Cyanide, Call of Cthulhu is an RPG-Investigation game with psychological horror and stealth mechanics, set in a deeply immersive world. On a mission to find the truth behind the death of an acclaimed artist and her family on a backwater island, the player will soon uncover a more disturbing truth as the Great Dreamer, Cthulhu, prepares its awakening...
"We are happy that Focus entrusted us with the development of a videogame adaptation of the legendary RPG Call of Cthulhu. As long-time fans of the license, working with longtime partner publisher Focus Home Interactive on such an original and exciting project is, once again, a privilege. We hope to offer fans the game they've long been waiting for."

@Moonwalker: plus the last 2 trully great R* games were long time ago for me (Bully and SA), so they have to do a lot to top these in my list. (1 Hour ago)
@Moonwalker: even though i'm interested to see their 1st game for this gen, i'll try to not get hyped too much.It sounds good and all, but fuck lknows if all these things will work so well. (1 Hour ago)
@Moonwalker: its especially weird given the brutality of the finishers. it's like they had some weird moral objection to showing blood...after animating the violent neck stabbing. lol (1 Hour ago)
@AMDman18: Xbox One X. Been seeing the lack of blood since E3. I thought that was just for the show. But nope. Such a weird decision of them. (2 Hours ago)
@Seth: That and you can swim. It's just a little something but more and more it started to look like we wouldn't be able. But it is :) (2 Hours ago)
instead of completely optional collectibles we're forced to put up with their survival systems that affect every facet of the game...yeah, give me backpacks any day of the week! lol (3 Hours ago)
anyways,the game having the MP3's shooting mechanics, dismemberment and varied random encounters/side missions is all i needed to know. (5 Hours ago)
