Call of Cthulhu Slated For Autumn 2018 Release

Call of Cthulhu

Call of Cthulhu, the upcoming eldritch-themed horror game by Cyanide, has been given a rough release window of autumn 2018.

The new date has been unearthed on the game’s Steam page, though it remains without required system specifications. Until now, the title has merely been billed for a vague 2018 launch.

Inspired by Chaosium’s classic pen-and-paper RPG, the project is a first-person adventure title through a Lovecraft-inspired world. Players will assume the role of Private Investigator Pierce as they investigate the mysterious deaths of the Hawkins family. These investigations take place on the desolate Darkwater Island, which, as Pierce soon discovers, is ridden with cultists, conspiracies, and Cthulhu-related horrors. The project will focus around the theme of insanity primarily, wherein players will need to manage Pierce’s tested mentality.

Gameplay-wise, the project takes a page out of Amnesia: The Dark Descent’s rulebook, focusing on atmosphere and evasion. The project received a new trailer last month, placing attention on the game’s sullen environmental design.

Call of Cthulhu will be launching on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in autumn 2018.

Stalker 2 is Not A Revived Version of the Cancelled 2012 Project

Stalker 2

Stalker 2 has been confirmed as an entirely new project that has no basis on the cancelled 2012 sequel.

Roughly a decade ago, fans were excited when Stalker 2 was announced. Unfortunately, in 2012, Ukrainian developers GSC Games World was shut down and all progress on the sequel was put on hold.

All went quiet until 2014 where the company resurfaced and announced that development on a version of Stalker 2 was underway. Despite a developer build for the original Stalker 2 making its way onto the web, GSC Games World chose to start from scratch and create an entirely new AAA experience for the series.

GSC Games World has so far not stated why the decision was made to start from the beginning, aside from the assurance that the new game is currently in development and will hopefully hit stores in 2021.
