New Call Of Cthulhu Trailer Debuts At E3 2018, And Yes It’s Terrifying (VIDEO)
Cyanide Studio’s upcoming adaptation of the H.P. Lovecraft mythos Call of Cthulhu was already terrifying enough with what we’ve seen of the game already. The foreboding psychological threat of insanity is the struggle players face as the mysteries of Cthulhu’s strange cosmic horrors unravels before them in video game form. A new trailer for the horrific title has debuted at E3 2018, and it looks as though the unsettling adventure intends to make good on its promise of walking the path of madness.
In the new trailer, 1920s-era Massachusetts is the setting of the mind-shattering horrors that await P.I. protagonist Edward Pierce, who finds his investigation wrought with awful truths and unexplainable supernatural terror. As one would expect from a Lovecraftian story, this takes him down a path where his grasp on reality constantly questioned and the “freedom of madness” slowly becomes preferable. Check it out below.
Based on Chaosium’s classic pen-and-paper RPG, Call of Cthulhu looks to pull from its lofty source material in pretty faithful, yet terrifying ways. By the end of this new trailer, the ultimate fate of player character Pierce is not looking too good, especially with the teased nightmare arrival of the godlike Cthulhu. Call of Cthulhu awakens on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One sometime in 2018.
