Uncover a Lovecraftian nightmare mystery in Call of Cthulhu, out this year on PS4

New trailer tease asks you to question the fabric of your reality

Hello! I’m Jean-Marc Gueney and I’m here to talk about the official Call of Cthulhu videogame we’re working on at Cyanide. The new trailer above depicts protagonist Pierce’s submersion into the depths of madness, as he investigates a mysterious death on Darkwater Island, Boston. You’ll notice a lot of hallmark Lovecraftian themes in this trailer, which was created to convey the mood we’re aiming for in the story. The idea that you’re never quite sure if what you’re seeing is real, or a symptom of madness — or both!

As a private detective, Edward 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…

Looks awesome is it a game on a film?

H.P. Lovecraft was a writer of horror stories. You’d be surprised how many books, films and games have some connection to his writings. All his works are publicly available at

Used to have the pen and paper RPG for Lovecraft’s books. This is looking pretty interesting too.

What type of game is it?

This looks promising! Definitely going to pick this up! What stories is the game based on, or is it an original story? Call of Cthulhu is a dead give-away, I’m guessing some Shadow over Innsmouth too?
