If you’ve ever felt the eagerness to hop into the world of any movie from Quentin Tarantino, than you might enjoy this bit of news. A new cinematic-style trailer and release date has been announced for Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days, which will be out on PC and Steam on May 18 (that’s NEXT month!).

There’s currently no final price for the game, however you can get a quick look at the game with a new trailer posted above.
