A new game based on White Wolf’s tabletop role-playing game Werewolf has howled its announcement into the internet. Werewolf The Apocalypse: Earthblood follows the story of a disgraced werewolf named Cahal. This is not the first game based on a White Wolf product to hit the market. In the past, the company has found great success in the video game worlds by allowing developers access to their Vampire: The Masquerade franchise.

This announcement does come during the spookiest time of the year, giving it thematic elements at this time of October. The game is being developed for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One.

White Wolf’s past adventures into the action role-playing world have come across as positive experiences. The games have easily harnessed the player decisions aspect popular in role-playing games while still maintaining the sexual and gritty realism found in the Vampire: The Masquerade world.

It is a known fact in the table-top world all of White Wolf’s games were easily able to cross into each other. Players who owned copies of Vampire could mingle with Werewolves, Mages, and even Shapeshifters. Each game focused on one primary aspect, humans, are not the highest on the food chain.

In Vampire, the humans are simply a source of food, and the games focus on the battle between warring clans of Vampires. Werewolf is going in a different direction. Werewolf has always had a stronger tribal nature feel to it, and the campaign is going to continue this trend.

Cahal is on a quest for redemption as he battles against the powerful Pentex corporation. This is a human company that is driven by greed and avarice, threatening to cause an untold amount of damage to the sacred Mother Earth. Pentex can only achieve its goal of power and riches through the true devastation of nature.

There is tons of shapeshifting flesh-tearing fun to be had in Cyanide Studio’s interpretation of the Werewolf franchise. White Wolf is putting a ton of trust into this studio to keep up the trend of amazing games, and not ruin the reputation of the White Wolf legacy.

If you are a fan of the table-top game or simply love the idea of being a werewolf, this game might be for you. You will find a full release planned sometime in 2020 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The trailer truly gets the blood pumping, fangs glistening, and howls heard across the entire world as werewolf fans unite under the same digitized moon.
