The long-rumoured Delta Green RPG is one step nearer to reality with Arc Dream Publishing announcing an open play test of the new rules set.
Formerly a set of highly acclaimed modern-day supplements for Call of Cthulhu, Delta Green is due to see release as its own independent game in 2015 (with aforementioned new rules and setting brought up to date from the 1990s to 2010s).
You can be part of the play test by downloading the freely available documents and reporting back by 23rd November.
There’s already discussion about the play test in the Yoggie forums.

Chaosium have released Cold Harvest, a Call of Cthulhu scenario by Chad Bowser set in 1930s Soviet Russia.
The 68 page supplement has been made available in PDF form (in advance of the print edition) to backers of Chaosium’s Horror on the Orient Express and Call of Cthulhu 7th edition Kickstarters as an apology for the new set of delays in those projects' releases.
Cold Harvest describes itself as “…very low-key and investigative in nature. The intent… to write a scenario playable by one Keeper and one player that also scales up for larger groups.”
Available now for Chaosium Kickstarter backers (and likely soon for everyone else).

The original "PDF Proof" version of HotOE came out just before Christmas 2013 but Chaosium have been polishing it since then.
