Focus Home Interactive didn’t hold a fancy E3 2018 press conference, but that does not mean they don’t have a line-up of great games to show us at the convention.
Three of those games are Cyanide Studio’s chilling Call of Cthulhu, the intriguing Greedfall by Spiders, and the stress-inducing A Plague Tale: Innocence developed by Asobo Studio.
I would have given each trailer isn’t own short article, but these videos are bearly over a minute each, so why not just watch them all in the same place? They’re all good.
Call of Cthulhu
The RPG-investigation game inspired by Chaosium’s classic pen and paper RPG has a new E3 2018 trailer that’s all about madness.
We can see PI Edward Pierce exploring the quiet Darkwater Island, both above the surface and in the flooded halls beneath it. As the video progresses, and the heated narration goes on, things start to get weird.
There’s definitely something fishy going on, and it seems Edward can’t quite handle it. We see cults, glimpses of otherworldly creatures and supernatural occurrences – all cumulating in Edward kneeling in front of a painting depicting him pointing a gun at his own head.
It is clear insanity plays a strong role in Call of Cthulu, as it should. Certain events may cause Pierce to develop mental traumas that can hinder your investigations.
The balancing act between furthering your inquiries and maintaining your sanity is what drives the game forward. There are multiple paths to explore, and your decisions will affect Edward’s skills and relationships with the island’s inhabitants.
I can’t wait to see more gameplay, or at the very least get a solid release date. Call of Cthulhu releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2018.
GreedFall E3 2018 trailer isn’t the first time we hear about the game, but it is the first time we get some substantial information on it. You know, beyond a cinematic trailer.
The game is an RPG with a visual style inspired by European Baroque art.
It tells the story of mercenaries and treasure hunters, fleeing a continent plagued by pollution and incurable disease. They find a remote island seeping with magic, rumored to be filled with riches and lost secrets.
Players find themselves in the middle of ever-increasing tensions between the invading settlers and the locals who are protected by the supernatural being we see in the trailer. Those massive, masked figures seem very powerful indeed.
You’ll be able to choose to approach situations and quests through combat, diplomacy, deception or stealth. Your actions will influence and alter the story, as well as the relationship between the different factions and characters on the island.
GreedFall releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2019.
A Plague Tale: Innocence
Out of all three games Focus shared an E3 trailer for, A Plague Tale: Innocence interests me the most. I’ve been following the game for a while now, and I’m still not sure what’s it about. However, it looks intense as hell.
A Plague Tale follows siblings Amicia and Hugo as they struggle to survive the Inquisition the Black Death in 14th century France. The deadly plague has brought with is swarms of rats, devouring everything in their path. Only Amicia’s torch keeps the two of them safe.
The trailer is very atmospheric but doesn’t show any gameplay. We’re told that it blends elements of adventure, action, and stealth; and presumably, large quantities of rats.
A Plague Tale: Innocence arrives on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in 2019.Some of our posts include links to online retail stores. We get a small cut if you buy something through one of our links. Don't worry, it doesn't cost you anything extra.
