THRILLING GAME OF COSMIC HORROR: A dark shadow grows in the city of Arkham. Alien entities known as Ancient Ones lurk in the emptiness beyond space and time, writhing at the thresholds between worlds. Only a handful of investigators stand against the horrors. Will they prevail?
SCARY STRATEGY GAME: Players take on the role of Arkham investigators as they explore the streets of the city and work together to save humanity from unknowable horrors. Stop occult rituals and destroy alien creatures before the Ancient Ones make our world their ruined dominion.
COOPERATIVE MYSTERY GAME: Players work as a team to gather clues, defeat terrifying monsters and find tools and allies to stand any hope of defeating the ancient creatures that exist just beyond the veil of our reality.
