Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood was first announced in January of 2017 and has probably been in development for longer than that. It’s been a long wait, but we’ve been seeing more and more of it lately and there’s a good shot that we’ll actually get to play the game before the current year is through.
Today publisher NACON and developer Cyanide released a new “Cinematic” trailer, which focuses on the storyline of Earthblood. Check it out:
Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood is based on the classic tabletop RPG and focuses on Cahal, a banished werewolf who is forced to return to his tribe after he desperately needs their help. He’s got a new quest that’s bigger than him or any petty squabble between lycans: Pentex, a powerful and evil corporation, is polluting and destroying their homeworld, and they must unite to take them down.
In October of 2019 PDXCON was held in Berlin, and Julien “Patch” Desourteaux, Game Director at Cyanide, gave a keynote speech there. Patch said the main aspects of the pen-and-paper version of Werewolf would be carried over to the game version faithfully — as a big fan of the game, he considered it his duty. The themes of nature’s destruction by man’s machines are more relevant than ever, Patch said. Rage powers Cahal in the game, but players will need to learn to control it, tame it and master it before it overtakes them.
There is still no specific release date for Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood, but it’s expected sometime in 2020 for Playstation 4, XBox One and PC. We may learn more next month, when a gameplay trailer is planned to be released by NACON.
