Our upcoming World War Cthulhu Kickstarter takes our gritty espionage take on Call of Cthulhu to four eras of the 20th century: World War One, World War Two, The Cold War and World War Three.
Jon’s put together a fantastic new trailer for the Kickstarter that really evokes the feel of the settings – check it out below!

When we first released our Second World War setting for Call of Cthulhu, World War Cthulhu: The Darkest Hour, back in 2013 we announced that this was just the first setting for World War Cthulhu. Over the past year we’ve been hard at work on the additional settings, which will initially include setting books focused on the First World War, the Cold War and World War Three, alongside World War Two.
Each of these core settings will deliver the same focused, dark, thematic, purist horror that fans of The Darkest Hour – and of Call of Cthulhu – know and love. Players will be asked to make tough choices, to face dark forces. There is a very real danger that they – and the world – will not survive.
The core book for each of the individual settings can be treated as a standalone product, which will in turn be supported by its own supplements and scenarios. We’re also working on the keystone of the World War Cthulhu experience: an over-arching campaign that provides not only a thematic and a historical bridge between each of the settings, but also a more direct connection too.
With your help we hope to bring something truly special to Call of Cthulhu. Over the coming weeks we'll be revealing more about these World War Cthulhu settings and the forthcoming Kickstarter – keep an eye on the website for more information as we declassify it.
We’re trying to decide which of the four settings is the most exciting or evocative era for Call of Cthulhu play! Let us know which one you’re most excited about, either over at our forums, on Facebook or on Twitter!
