Ready to summon some true Eldritch abominations? You’ll be able to do so this October, when developer Cyanide is ready to bring the broody new RPG Call of Cthulhu, from Focus Home Interactive, to store shelves. Though we previously we knew about the game potentially debuting in fall 2018, the team’s latest announcement revealed an Oct. 30 date, which puts it out just in time for Halloween.
First announced in 2014, Call of Cthulhu is an adventure from the developer of the Sherlock Holmes series, Frogwares, that takes place in the year 1924. As private investigator Edward Pierce, you’re tasked with visiting Darkwater Island to weave together some answers surrounding the death of the Hawkins family. As you might have already imagined, this being a Lovecraftian work and all, foul play is afoot, especially of the supernatural variety.
You’ll be able to check the game out on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC when it arrives just before the creepiest night of the year. Just don’t get too scared, after all. You never know what kind of creepy Eldritch nightmares will be waiting for you in the night-drenched blackness of Cal of Cthulhu.
Until then, check out these screens for a look at what’s to come, and make sure you sleep with the lights on if you’re the type of person these things usually bother. It’s going to be pretty terrifying, that’s for sure.
