Call of Cthulhu goes gold

Due out on October 30.

Call of Cthulhu

Call of Cthulhu, the Cyanide Studio-developed video game adaption of Chaosium’s pen-and-paper RPG, has gone gold, publisher Focus Home Interactive announced. That means it has completed development and is ready for release.

To celebrate the announcement, Focus Home Interactive released a new trailer dubbed “Preview to Madness.” Here is an overview:

Today, dive into the Preview to Madness Trailer for a taste of the press’ first impressions, joined by a dose of Lovecraftian madness.

With Call of Cthulhu releasing in under two weeks, members of the press have already gotten their hands on the early hours of Detective Pierce’s haunting investigation. Today’s trailer explores praise for the game’s distinctly Lovecraftian atmosphere, mesmerizing audio and visual design, as well as the RPG-investigation mechanics that allow players to discover clues, draw conclusions, question locals and survive the island’s cosmic horrors.

In Call of Cthulhu, nothing is as it seems. Terrible creatures, conspiracies and cults await on Darkwater Island, lining the path to the horrifying truth behind the island. Pierce’s mind will suffer – solving the case will bring him to brink of insanity, to a place where death may appear the most favorable outcome. The player’s senses will be challenged to the point of questioning whether everything and everyone is real or illusory. Creeping shadows hide lurking figures… and all the while, the Great Dreamer prepares for his awakening.

Call of Cthulhu is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 30.
