6 Ways Call of Cthulhu Plans to Mess With Your Head

Published 3 months ago by Mike Channell

Cult appeal

Call of Cthulhu: The Official Videogame promises to bring creepy, Lovecraftian horror to your Xbox One and PS4 and this is the first gameplay footage. In it you play a private investigator sent to Darkwater Island to investigate the murder of an artist, but as is custom for Lovecraft there are also weird cults, sea monsters and your own fragile sanity to contend with.

The gameplay in the video above shows how Call of Cthulhu plans to mess with your head, both in the more obviously creepy stuff, but also in more subtle ways that will make you question what's real and what isn't. Hint: we think the terrifying ancient tentacle monsters might actually be real, so avoid those.

Call of Cthulhu is scheduled to come out in 2018 on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, with a release date yet to be confirmed.
