In less than a month, Frogwares’ H.P. Lovecraft-infused investigative game The Sinking City will hit consoles and PC via Epic Store. It’s a game that we’ve been covering for a while now, so you can understand our excitement when we’re given the chance to bring you a set of exclusive stills.
In the game, players take on the role of Charles Reed, a private investigator who comes to the fictional town of Oakmont, MA. While fighting off his own encroaching insanity, Reed is also investigating the mysteries of a town that was flooded several months prior, bringing strange creatures with it. While some are friendly, some are certainly not, creating a tense environment that will be difficult to navigate through.
Much of the trailers and images that have been released have shown the city itself as well as the strange locations within and nearby. Today, our stills take us into a location that hasn’t gotten the same amount of revelation: underwater.
Take a look at these stills below to see Reed’s classic diving suit, the monstrosities lurking in the dark depths, and the odd, haunting locations.
“Tortured by his past and otherworldly visions, Charles W. Reed, a private investigator finds himself in Oakmont, Massachusetts, seeking salvation from the creeping insanity that afflicts him. Once a trade harbor, known for its lucrative smuggling business, Oakmont now lives in secluded isolation from the rest of the world, under a flood of supernatural origins. In this place of decay and superstition; players will have to deal with the dregs of mankind, follow clues they wish they had never found, and unveil a cosmic horror threatening the world itself.“
The Sinking City is coming out on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on June 27.
