Call of Cthulhu – Depths of Madness Coming Soon
In the latest release of the fan favorite Call of Cthulhu – Depths of Madness, nothing is certain, even your sanity. You play the role of Edward Pierce who is sent to Darkwater Island to investigate a mysterious death of Sarah Hawkins. This is no ordinary investigation, however. The rumors of the existence of a mysterious monster lurking in the depths of the sea and a secret cult quickly pop up. As the you delve into the mystery, questions of your own sanity begin to swirl around your head. As you guide Edward, you will not only have to unravel the mystery, but you’ll have to manage Edwards sanity level and avoid the traps and snares lurking on the shadows of Darkwater Island.
The official description reads:
“Pierce is used to trusting his instincts, but with whale mutilations and disappearing bodies, this is only the beginning as reality becomes skewed. As your investigation leads you closer to the sphere of influence of the Great Dreamer, you will start to doubt everything you see. You will have to find balance between your own sanity, and your determination in finding out what lurks in the shadows – as they say that madness is the only way that can bring you to the truth.”
What To Expect From The New Call of Cthulhu?
While information about the game is limited at the moment, Cyanide Studios released an official trailer for the game. While the E3 trailer, released in 2016 was intriguing, the new trailer provides a better feel for the mechanics and atmosphere of the game. It seems similar the horror games Outlast and Soma. While I like those games, there did become a bit repetitive in that there was basically one task repeated over and over with slight variations and increase difficulty. Hopefully, Call of Cthulhu – Depths of Madness will move the horror genre forward and not simply be a rehash of what has come before with better graphics. 2010’s Shutter Island stars Leonardo DiCaprio as a detective who is sent to an island to investigate the dissapearanceof a woman at an asylum only to find out its all in his head.
Call of Cthulhu is scheduled to release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One sometime in 2017.
