Cthulhu is a popular guy these days. Frogwares’ ambitious open-world game, The Sinking City, is one to keep an eye on if you’re into Eldritch horrors. The latest trailer shown at E3 gives us an idea of the type of horror the game is going for – the creeping, maddening kind. Although we don’t see any gameplay yet, it’s clear from the screenshots that it will involve defending yourself from monsters while searching for clues in a city that’s gone insane.
The Sinking City is set for release on March 21, 2019 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The Sinking City is an open world, action investigation game set in a Lovecraft universe. The player steps into the shoes of a private investigator Charles Reed who finds himself trapped in 1920’s Oakmont Massachusetts – a city suffering from unprecedented floods of supernatural origins. The player must uncover the source of whatever has taken possession of the city, and the minds of its inhabitants.
