New Game Releases: Week of October 28, 2018

On Halloween week, Call of Cthulhu promises cosmic horror, The Quiet Man might change the world, and Ganondorf comes to Sanctuary.

While Red Dead Redemption 2 may not be leaving many consoles any time soon, this week features a batch of exciting games for those that are looking for something different.

On Tuesday, October 30, Cyanide Studios brings Chaosium's 1981 table-top RPG to life with Call of Cthulhu: The Official Video Game on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Assuming the role of a private investigator, this survival RPG will immerse players in a "terrifying world of conspiracies, cultists, and cosmic horrors" where they must uncover the truth behind a series of mysterious deaths.

Explore a world set within H.P. Lovecraft's classic mythology; Call of Cthulhu lets the player decide how they will investigate. 

Square Enix and Human Head Studios give The Quiet Man a voice on Thursday, November 1.

Coming to PC and PlayStation 4, this interactive movie asks players to navigate a world that they cannot hear. And, by navigate, I mean beat it into a bloody pulp as you brawl your way through The Quiet Man.

Running around three hours, a play-through may only be a short distraction, but, if The Quiet Man can match its developers' ambitions, it could be something great.

To round out the week, Diablo III: Eternal Collection finds its way to Switch on Friday, November 2.

Six years after its initial release, new players and seasoned vets alike can dungeon crawl in Nintendo's port of the action RPG sensation. And, even better, they can do so on the go.

This version will let fans play as The Legend of Zelda's Ganondorf, and, for those especially committed to Sanctuary, a Diablo-themed Switch bundle will be available at GameStop on release day.
