The Last Case Of Benedict Fox Pc Reveal 2

There certainly is no wanting for Lovecraft-inspired games in the world today. But often for good reason. The unsettling world of Great Old Ones and fishfolk remains deeply intriguing still, even after so many decades. Rogue Games and developer Plot Twist are dipping back into that well with The Last Case of Benedict Fox, a Metroid-like heading to PC in 2023. It was unveiled today during the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase.

The Last Case of Benedict Fox is a side-scrolling mystery game starring the eponymous detective. It’s a dark and Gothic game, where horrifying monstrosities lurk. Thankfully, even if you play an old-timey detective, you’re not just running from freaky tentacles. The game boasts “freeform combat,” which consists of long-range weaponry and “traversal abilities.” You can see some example of that in the trailer below.

 

Mostly, The Last Case of Benedict Fox is about solving a mystery. As Fox, you explore a rundown home in attempt to ascertain the fate of a family with a missing child. It’s stated that the game will have a “rich and tragic story,” which you peel away as you investigate the manor. As you delve further deeper, the world around you begins to change and warp. Things definitely tip in to the Lovecraftian aspect over time, with hellacious underworlds and unspeakable horrors.

Overall, The Last Case of Benedict Fox could be a hit when it lands on PC next year. Lovecraft stories have been able to provide interesting foundations for a lot of games, such as Call of Cthulhu and Bloodborne.

“Take on the last case of Benedict Fox and dive into a twisted world of secret organizations, forbidden rituals, and cold-blooded murders,” reads the game’s description. “Explore the memories of deceased victims as you search for clues and fight demons in this fantastical Lovecraftian Metroidvania.”

The Last Case of Benedict Fox heads to PC in 2023 via the Epic Games Store and Steam. It’ll also be a day one launch title for Game Pass.
