Werewolf: The Apocalypse was first announced by Paradox Interactive, Cyanide Studio and Focus Home Interactive in January of 2017. In 2018 BigBen Interactive was announced as its distributor. In 2019 it gained the subtitle “Earthblood,” and last week we were promised a trailer very soon.
That time is now! PDXCON just took place in Berlin, and Julien “Patch” Desourteaux, Game Director at Cyanide, took the stage to unveil the big trailer, as well as deliver a keynote speech. This is what everyone saw:
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.
Patch said at PDXCON that the main aspects of the pen-and-paper version of Werewolf would be carried over to the game version faithfully, and 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.
Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood is due out sometime in 2020 for Playstation 4, XBox One and PC.
