Focus Home Interactive has released the first gameplay trailer for Call of Cthulhu, the upcoming immersive sim based on the incredibly popular tabletop game of the same name. Check out the guided video below.
Call of Cthulhu actually has a rather strange and coincidental development history. The other day, we posted a video of another Lovecraftian title called The Sinking City. That game is being developed by Frogwares, who at one time was developing Call of Cthulhu, which was supposed to be similar to the Sherlock Holmes games Frogwares was known for. After two years with no real information, publisher Focus Home Interactive announced that Frogwares was no longer involved. Cyanide, the studio behind the stealth fantasy game Styx, had taken over.
Frogwares still wanted to make their Lovecraft game, so they pivoted to a more water-based title which they’re self-publishing, so there’s more Lovecraftian games than you can shake a stick at.
Call of Cthulhu releases in time for Halloween on October 30 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
