Frogwares Studios and publisher BigBen Interactive have revealed a brand new gameplay trailer for The Sinking City, an open world, action investigation game inspired by the work of H.P. Lovecraft.

Watch The Sinking City – A Close Shave trailer below:
Players step into the shoes of Charles W. Reed, a private investigator from New England. Tortured by his past and otherworldly visions, he finds himself in Oakmont, seeking salvation from his creeping insanity. Oakmont, once a trade harbor known for its lucrative smuggling business, now lives in isolation from the rest of the world under a flood of supernatural origins. A place of decay and superstition; players will deal with the dregs of mankind, follow clues they may wish they never found and unveil the source of whatever has taken possession of the city, and the minds of its inhabitants.
The Sinking City is currently in production and will be available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 21st 2019.
