A new trailer has been released for Call of Cthulhu, Cyanide Studio’s upcoming RPG-investigation game based on Chaosium’s pen and paper RPG.

Watch on YouTube

In it, private investigator Edward Pierce’s perception of reality becomes “more and more skewed” the closer he gets to the Sleeper of R’lyehClutch’s influence.

While trying to maintain his sanity, Pierce will need to unravel the conspiracies behind the murder of Sarah Hawkins, deal with cultists and otherworldly beings while exploring Darkwater Island and the creepy Hawkins mansion. But, Pierce is not alone.

Players will be able to recruit a small team of investigators, and leading them as Pierce, send them across the island to solve various cases.

Remember though: the choices made will impact the narrative and relationships with Pierce’s companions.

Call of Cthulhu was announced back in January 2014 via a set of concept art from developer Frogwares. The game resurfaced in 2016 with news of Cyanide taking over development.

Since then, we’ve been treated to a number of screenshots, an E3 2016 trailer, even more screenshots, and a video released earlier in the year.

While a release date still hasn’t been provided, at least this E3 2017 gives us another look at it.

Call of Cthulhu will be released sometime this year for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
