Call of Cthulhu finally gets a release date

Cyanide Studio and Focus Home Interactive will bring the madness to PC and consoles this year. 

French indie developers and publishers at Cyanide Studio and Focus Home Interactive have revealed today the official release date for their upcoming adaptation of the classic pen and paper RPG created by Chaosium, Call of Cthulhu.

Lovecraftian fans will be more than pleased to know that Call of Cthulhu, a AAA looking horror adventure RPG based in HP Lovecraft’s universe will be released this October 30th for PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One. The last trailer was showcased during this year’s E3 and reflected the deep noir feeling of this game, revolving around the universe created by one of the most important and influential horror authors ever.

Call of Cthulhu

Call of Cthulhu is a single player experience following the footsteps of private investigator Edward Pierce as he tries to uncover the mystery behind the death of the Hawkins family. “Nothing is as it seems. Sanity is an irregular bedfellow, all too often replaced by whisperings in the dark. Strange creatures, weird science, and shadowy cults dominate the Cthulhu Mythos, intent on realizing their mad schemes to bring about the end of all. Your mind will suffer – balancing a razor-thin line between sanity and madness, your senses will be disrupted until you question the reality of everything around you. Trust no one. Creeping shadows hide lurking figures… and all the while, the Great Dreamer prepares for his awakening.”, reads the game’s latest press release published today.

Focus Home Interactive and Cyanide Studio have made preorders available today as well through the game’s Steam page. Retail preorders are also there for players looking to expand their physical collections.

Cyanide Studio has been responsible for quite a long list of great indie games like Styx, Game of Thrones RPG, Deathwing and sports titles like Pro Basketball Manager, Pro Rugby Manager, Winter Challenge and Tour De France.
