New screenshots of Call of Cthulhu

The disturbing and horrifying locales of Darkwater are depicted in these new Call of Cthulhu screenshots. The RPG/Investigation game from Focus and Cyanide will put you in the shoes of war veteran turned PI Edward Pierce who has been hired to look into the tragic death of the Hawkins family. The game is still set to release in 2017 for PC and consoles.

Looks nice, but i'm always a little worried about the theme of Cthulhu and how to make it in to a good game. Will be interesting to see more though for sure :)

The graphics look dated but the art direction looks on point.

Well, it doesn't look like a AAA game but i think it's passable. The art and lighting looks good though :)

It reminds me of Call of Cthulhu Dark Corners of the Earth, one of the best games I have ever played, and that is a very very good sign. I always prefer good art to more pixels.

xbox version was good, pc version was a freakin' buggy mess.

Xbox version was also a buggy mess, i at least got a game breaking bug. Obviously not as bad as the PC version that is impossible to finish without the fan patch ofc.

Cool game but also lacking in many ways. Charming in it's own way, especially like the first half of it. But i don't know if i can honestly call it a great game :P

You can actually finish it without the fan patch but yes, PC version was very buggy. Xbox version was fine, though, I have replayed it multiple times and I never found any game breaking bug that I can remember. As for the game itself, in my humble opinion, one of the greatest games ever made: great story, atmosphere, setting, gameplay, everything about it was fantastic but I agree that not everyone will see it that same way, at all.

    MrWhite Turns out everyone on that island had to survive lara from murdering them with an AK47. From fragile student, to trained military killing machine in next to no time. (5 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite What was this survival aspect they were meant to be pushing? I was under the impression from the devs that you had to, you know, do stuff to survive (6 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @Sdarts: Hated the first one, couldn't be arsed with the second. Wasn't Tomb Raider, or at least what I remembered it to be most memorable for. (7 minutes ago)

    KORNdog @Sdarts: already started. Already noticing dialogue changes. (1 Hour ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @KORNdog: Yeah, really great story. Also, make sure to replay a second time, the enhanced edition has much more elements and story for the second playthrough. It's worth it. (1 Hour ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Quite frankly, I'm excited for the StarCraft Remaster. I haven't played the original in years, and even though my brother has the CDs - and DLCs - it's very old game design wise. (1 Hour ago)

    KORNdog That oxenfree story is going to be sticking with me for a while. Damn... (1 Hour ago)
