Upgraded WW1 Themed Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land Arrives on Steam
10 Mar 2014 – The multi-award winning World War 1 strategy RPG launches today on Steam for PC. The critically acclaimed title originally launched on mobile and PC in 2012. The title successfully passed Steam’s Greenlight process and now arrives as a fully-fledged game on Steam. The Steam launch includes updated graphics and the bonus DLC “Kaul’s Dairy”, which had previously only been available on iOS and is priced at $5.
The game features 14 levels set in the trenches of World War One. The player controls a team of up to six investigators charged with uncovering a deadly inhuman conspiracy underlying the clash of empires of the Great War. Barbed wire, mustard gas and machine guns prove to be the least dangerous challenges the investigators encounter as they venture into no man’s land to solve the mystery of the Wasted Land. As the game progresses, the player must build up the team’s skills, weapons and equipment to counter the rising tide of darkness. As well as the physical danger, the investigators must guard their sanity against myriad horrors that threaten to destroy them.
