If you follow this site, you know I’m a big Cthulhu mythos fan. That’s why I’m excited to see what comes from the Cthulhu – Depths of Madness video game. The new trailer is here, and it definitely brings the creepy.

Lovecraft’s twisted universe comes alive in Call of Cthulhu’s Depths of Madness trailer

Developed by seasoned studio Cyanide, Call of Cthulhu for consoles and PC is an RPG-Investigation game blending psychological horror and stealth mechanics, in a deeply immersive world with an oppressive atmosphere. Today ushers in a new trailer, depicting protagonist Pierce’s submersion into the depths of madness, as he investigates a mysterious death on Darkwater Island, Boston.

A Private Detective, Edward Pierce is a mission to find the truth behind the death of an acclaimed artist and her family on a backwater island. Pierce is used to trusting his instincts, but with whale mutilations and disappearing bodies, this is only the beginning as reality becomes skewed. As your investigation leads you closer to the sphere of influence of the Great Dreamer, you will start to doubt everything you see. You will have to find balance between your own sanity, and your determination in finding out what lurks in the shadows – as they say that madness is the only way that can bring you to the truth.

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…

Cthulhu – Depths of Madness arrives on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC sometime this year (2017).

  1. well, this certainly seems interesting, but its called the official call of cthullu video game, that kind of bothers me since it doesn’t seem like a book adaption.

    Then again, a book adaption wouldn’t be much better.
