Cyanide Studios and Focus Home Interactive’s Call of Cthulhu for Xbox One, PS4, and Steam was a real mind-trip when it released back in the fall of 2018. The game was one of the more highly anticipated Lovecraftian titles to come out in recent times alongside Frogwares’ The Sinking City, which was published by Bigben Interactive. While both games had their pros and cons, I think Call of Cthulhu felt a little more immersive and authentic to the Lovecraft experience, despite its linear design and almost walking sim-esque approach to the gameplay.
Even still, if you managed to grab a copy of Call of Cthulhu on PC, there are some cheats available for you to help get you through some of the tough spots in the game.
The first trainer is available for free from over on the Mr. Antifun forum.
The Call of Cthulhu cheats are limited but useful, as listed below:
- Infinite CP
- Infinite Lamp Oil
The cheats are fairly bare bones but what else would you expect from a game with no real combat?
You have the infinite CP to upgrade your character with, but you first have to use one point after activating it before you gain infinite points, and you have the undetected cheat, which makes it where enemies will no longer see you. That’s a useful cheat for the stealth segments where you have to sneak past the NPCs, like in the hospital segment.
The next cheat trainer is available for download from over on MegaDev.info.
The trainer for Call of Cthulhu features the following cheats:
- +5 Character Points
- Reset CP to 0
- Infinite Lantern Fuel
Again, only three cheats but somewhat useful for getting you through the game. The infinite lantern fuel means you can keep the lantern on at all times, while the character point cheats mean you can upgrade your character and max out the stats.
Now the good news is that while the trainer is designed with free and premium options, the infinite CP option is one of the free cheats, which is extra useful.
There’s a premium trainer that you can grab from over on Cheat Happens.
The trainer contains the following cheats for Call of Cthulhu:
- Set CP Points
- Unlimited Oil Lamp
- Lighter Will Not Overheat
- Sanity Deplete/Full/Off
- Stealth Mode
- Move Faster
- Save/Load Position (Teleport)
So the neat part about it is that this trainer – despite requiring a premium membership to gain access to all its benefits – offers you some sweet options. The ability to teleport, the ability to never run out of sanity, or the ability to have infinite stealth mode. Also, being able to move faster would be super useful for timed segments, too.
Last but not least is a cheat table available for the Cheat Engine from over on Fearless Revolution.
The table contains the following Call of Cthulhu cheats:
- Infinite XP Points
- Infinite Lamp Oil
Same as the Mr. Antifun cheats.
If you have the game then you can very easily breeze through the levels using the stealth cheat and infinite lamp oil.
It’s not a particularly long game but a lot of people have enjoyed it for what it is. It’s visually immersive and dark in all the right ways. It’s a shame it’s not quite as gameplay heavy as The Sinking City, but as far as storytelling is concerned and capturing the iconic Lovecraft levels of insanity, I think they did a pretty good job.
The game is also relatively pozz-free, which is extremely important in this day and age where so many other games are focused so heavily on trying to brainwash you with Leftist inculcation. I think that being able to play and enjoy a game and escape from reality every once in a while is a nice thing, and you can do that with Call of Cthulhu, opposite of games like The Sinking City.
You can pick up a digital copy right now from over on the Steam store for $44.99 or grab a version of the game for the Xbox One or PS4.
