Cyanide Studios and Focus Home Interactive have announced an upcoming horror game based on Chaosium's long-running pen-and-paper RPG Call of Cthulhu. The game, which is coming to consoles and PC in 2017, promises to give players a disturbing take on Lovecraftian horror.

In this Call of Cthulhu game, players are investigating the death of an artist and her family on a remote island. This being Call of Cthulhu, players will likely have their sanity tested as they face unspeakable horrors and their fraying grasp on reality. Cyanide says it's a psychological-horror game with stealth mechanics, and that it's being built, appropriately enough, in Unreal Engine 4.

We'll have more details on the game in the coming months.
