Spy on Eldritch cults in a new trailer for Call of Cthulhu

Call of Cthulu 2017

Eldritch horrors and evil doctors are awaiting you in Call of Cthulhu, which released its newest trailer at E3 this year. Keeping in line with the themes of Lovecraftian horror, there are no images of Cthulhu itself, just some rather gross imagery from the bottom of the sea.

You can see the rest of our E3 coverage right here.

In the new game, which lends itself more towards the Call of Cthulhu RPG rather than H.P. Lovecraft’s book, you’ll play a private investigator who’s looking into the death of an artist who recently moved to the area.

This trailer focuses on some of the cinematic horror aspects to Call of Cthulhu, but the gameplay itself isn’t quite so intense. Instead, the game is described as an “RPG-investigation,” as you’ll be able to solve mysteries around Darkwater Island by leading a team of investigators.

How this mystery-solving is balanced with horror aspects is unknown, but with the game being released at some point in 2017, hopefully some actual gameplay will be shown off in the neat future.
