Call of Cthulhu takes players deeper into madness in latest gameplay trailer Call of Cthulhu, the official videogame adaptation of Chaosium’s tabletop RPG, release October 30 on XBOX One. Today, we invite players to tread further down the path of madness in the latest 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.
Players will need to rely on a variety of skills, upgradeable throughout Edward Pierce’s investigation, in order to escape the clutches of madness and death. Convincing the distrustful locals of Darkwater Island to offer up key information will require putting points into Eloquence and Psychology. However, no matter how convincing he can be, Pierce won’t be able to talk about topics he knows nothing about – investing into Spot Hidden and Investigation may be necessary to find as many clues as possible. Strength will enable Pierce to overcome more physical challenges, while increasing your skills and knowledge of Medicine and Occultism will require reading books found on the island.
Pierce is just one man with few allies in a remote environment. At best he will be outnumbered by mortal adversaries, though other foes may be totally beyond human comprehension. As such, offering up any physical fight will likely be in vain. Relying on Pierce’s full 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 Xbox One on October 30. Digital and retail preorders are available.
