Frogwares’ forthcoming The Sinking City looks awesome, and so too does Cyanide’s Call of Cthulhu. Both are taking different approaches to H.P. Lovecraft’s cosmic universe, with this game adopting a first-person perspective. You play as an investigator named Edward Pierce who’s sent to an island named Darkwater, which is inhabited by all kinds of curious characters.
The more detective work you do, the more you’ll uncover the truth about the Old Gods, but you’ll have to battle madness along the way. This one looks to be more of an RPG than The Sinking City’s adventure game, so both appear to have unique takes on iconic lore. The only issue for Call of Cthulhu is that it’s due out on 30th October – a few days after Red Dead Redemption 2.
