Witness madness in Call of Cthulhu on October 30

Call of Cthulhu, the official videogame inspired by Chaosium’s classic pen and paper RPG, will begin the spread of madness on October 30 this year – just in time for Halloween. Lock the doors, turn off the lights, and uncover the chilling mysteries of this Narrative RPG game, descending deep into a world of inevitable insanity and shrouded Old Gods within Lovecraft’s iconic universe.

Four new screenshots give you a glimpse of what’s to come across the deep, single-player story following private investigator Edward Pierce’s as he scours the island of Darkwater for answers regarding the mysterious deaths of the Hawkins family. Lead him along the razor’s edge of madness, as he’s confronted with a terrifying web of conspiracies, cultists, and cosmic horrors…

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.

Call of Cthulhu releases for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 30.

Call of Cthulhu unveils first gameplay from within the grim Hawkins Mansion

Call of Cthulhu, the official videogame inspired by Chaosium’s classic pen and paper RPG, is set to unleash madness when the game releases for consoles and PC on October 30. Today, prepare your mind for all-new gameplay, taken from Edward Pierce’s investigations within the Hawkins Mansion.

Hm... abgesehen davon, dass die Stimme des Protagonisten mich sehr an die von Jonathan Read in Vampyr erinnert, scheint das Spiel auch so ein wenig was von diesem Spiel zu haben. Von wegen Hinweise finden und damit Gesprächsoptionen freischalten.

Das finde ich prinzipiell bei einem "Lovecraft-Spiel" nicht schlecht. Wenn man es ganz getreu der Vorlage macht, müssten die Figuren beim Anblick des kosmischen Horrors ja ohnehin nahezu direkt wahnsinnig werden. Ich bin daher weiterhin skeptisch, was ein Videospiel zu diesem Thema angeht. Aber ich lasse mich natürlich sehr gerne eines Besseren belehren.

Dark Corners Of The Earth hatte damals nen guten Ansatz. Ne Mischung aus Erkunden, Schleichen und Rätsel und Anfangs eher seltenen Kampfeinlagen. Dann ist leider zu nem Shooter geworden, war etwas zu lang und stellenweise auch recht verbuggt.

Auf das neue freue ich mich schon und mir würde auch ne einfache narrative 1st Person-Erfahrung reichen.

Walk the path of madness in Call of Cthulhu's latest gameplay trailer

will release October 30 on PlayStation 4, XBOX One and PC. Today, we invite players to tread further down the path of madness in this new Gameplay Trailer, as the Darkwater investigation begins to spiral out of control in the midst of unsettling conspiracies, bizarre cults and even the Old Ones themselves.

In Private Investigator Edward Pierce's quest to unveil the truth, players will need to rely on a variety of upgradeable Skills to escape the clutches of madness and death. The Spot Hidden and Investigation skill paths let players uncover more clues and draw more meaningful conclusions, unlocking more topics to question in dialogues. Convincing the distrustful locals of Darkwater to reveal what they know will require proficiency in Eloquence and Psychology. Pierce's Strength skill may also come in handy for when brute force is necessary, or to intimidate impressionable people into offering whatever they’re hiding. Expertise in Medicine and Occultism, improved only through discovering unique books and artifacts throughout the investigation, may grant additional insight – but knowledge can be a curse in Call of Cthulhu. The more aware Pierce is made of the horrors that dwell beyond the fabrics of reality, the more he will fall to insanity, impeding his ability to draw logical conclusions.

Pierce is but a mortal man, with few allies in a remote, unfriendly environment. Whether outnumbered by mortal adversaries or facing foes whose mere existence is beyond human comprehension, offering physical resistance is usually not an option. Making the most of Pierce’s extensive set of skills, along with subterfuge and stealth, is paramount… though escaping the gaze of the Great Dreamer may ultimately prove futile.

Call of Cthulhu releases for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on October 30. Digital and retail preorders are available on PC and consoles.

Vier Tage nach RDR2. Wollen manche Publisher eigentlich, dass ihre Spiele floppen?

Freu mich aber drauf. Für Lovecroft Fans aufjedenfall ne schöne Zeit.

Das Spiel wirkt bisher an einigen Stellen ziemlich unpoliert....mal schauen ob die Entwickler ihre ambitionierten Vorstellungen umsetzen können....

Nicht jeder kann was mit RDR2 anfangen und tendiert dann doch eher zu einem Spiel mit solch einer Thematik....aber ja, grundsätzlich sollten Entwickler/Publisher solcher Spiele den großen Mainstream-Veröffentlichungen aus dem Weg gehen.

Hab es jetzt durch... was ein mieses und unbefriedigendes Ende ich erwischt habe, generell lässt das Spiel hintenraus extrem nach. Schade, von mir Max. 6,5 von 10 Punkten.
