Call Of Cthulhu RPG screenshot of giant gates

Call of Chtulhu is Cyanide Studios' upcoming video game adaptation of the classic pen & paper RPG... you guessed it, Call of Cthulhu. As you might imagine given the the topic and otherworldly horrors present within, madness is something our character is going to be constantly brushing against in his never-ending search for the truth, no matter how terrible it truly is.

In an effort to showcase exactly this the developers have recently posted a rather intriguing trailer. It doesn't sport much in terms of gameplay, but it does an extremely good job of bringing Lovecraft's unimaginable horrors to life without resorting to the use of giant monsters. Have a look:

I don't know how representative this trailer is of the actual gameplay, but you can consider me quite impressed. Outside of the oldschool Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth this is one the best interpretations of Lovecraft's story that I've seen so far. So here's to hoping this will also be the case when we're the ones behind the 'wheel' and not just watching a couple of cutscenes.

The Call of Cthulhu RPG will be arriving at some point in 2017 for the PC and consoles, though no exact date has been given just yet. If you would like to learn more I would suggest going to the official website, but just keep in mind that there isn't much available as of yet.
