Developer Frogwares Studios and publisher BigBen Interactive have released the big new gameplay trailer for their anticipated open-world investigation game; The Sinking City.

The setting is New England in the 1920s — the fictional city of Oakmont, Massachusetts. Oakmont has had some flooding issues lately…but that’s not the least of it. All that water is supernatural in origin, a by-product of the Lovecraftian monsters invading the city. A private investigator arrives to determine what’s up. Charles W. Reed must explore the city, gather clues and figure out how to end the invasion — if Oakmont doesn’t rob him of his sanity first.

We not only have a new trailer, but a release date: The Sinking City will be out for Playstation 4, XBox One and PC March 21, 2019. More of the game will be shown to the press at Gamescom.
