CALL OF CTHULHU HAS GONE GOLD - WATCH THE PREVIEW TO MADNESS TRAILER

Call of Cthulhu, the official videogame adaptation of Chaosium’s pen-and-paper RPG, has gone Gold, ready for its release on October 30 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Today, dive into the Preview to Madness Trailer for a taste of the press’ first impressions, joined by a dose of Lovecraftian madness.

With Call of Cthulhu releasing in under two weeks, members of the press have already gotten their hands on the early hours of Detective Pierce’s haunting investigation. Today’s trailer explores praise for the game’s distinctly Lovecraftian atmosphere, mesmerizing audio and visual design, as well as the RPG-investigation mechanics that allow players to discover clues, draw conclusions, question locals and survive the island’s cosmic horrors.

SPACE HULK: TACTICS BEGINS THE DESPERATE BATTLE BETWEEN MAN AND ALIEN TODAY!

Space Hulk: Tactics is available today on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and for PC on Steam ! Last week’s Launch Trailer is the perfect introduction to this turn-based tactical game, faithful adaptation of the board game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, showing the deadly standoffs between the pinnacles of human development and the galaxy’s most deadly threat.
 
On the side of humanity stand the Space Marine Terminators, genetically modified super soldiers clad in heavy armour and equipped with extraordinary firepower that turns them into effective walking tanks. Opposing them are the Genestealers, insidious inhabitants of the floating amalgamations of smashed-together starships called space hulks, hiding inside every pipe and duct, prepared to rend anything that comes close to pieces with glistening claws.
 
An innovative new card system gives players greater control over their forces, while two non-linear, narrative-driven campaigns tell a new, terrifying story in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. A full customisation system is available across four Space Marine chapters and four Genestealer Hive Fleets, letting you design your force down to the last shoulder plate or weapon hilt. A robust mission editor, inspired by the clip-together nature of building scenarios in the board game, means you can design, share, and play your own maps quickly and easily.
