Now Playing: Call of Cthulhu - E3 2016 Trailer

A press release describes Call of Cthulhu as "an RPG-investigation" game. It puts you in the shoes of a private investigator, Edward Pierce, in 1920s-era Boston as he investigates the death of a woman and her family.

As you make your way through the game and get "closer to Cthulhu's sphere of influence, madness will progressively engulf your senses, leaving you to increasingly question what is real and what is illusory."
