Cyanide and Nacon released a new trailer for Werewolf: The Apocalypse Earthblood and this one gives a small glimpse at why Cahal, the main character of the game, is very angry at the petroleum company Endron. The trailer shows Cahal and others, including his wife, protesting against Endron. That event quickly turns to bloodshed as Endron’s private security force opens fire on the protestors. Cahal is not going to take this down, and the trailer shows him returning to the scene with revenge on his mind.
Based on the tabletop RPG Werewolf: The Apocalypse, a part of the World of Darkness universe that also contains Vampire: The Masquerade. The full story follows the Cahal, an eco-terrorist werewolf banished from his tribe, but deciding to fight against the corporations that have caused pollution across the American Northwest. The game will let you shapeshift between wolf, human and werewolf form, to explore, converse, and fight across this region.
The game is in development by Cyanide, best known for the Styx games and Call of Cthulhu. It’s actually the Styx: Shards of Darkness team working on this, so there might be some elements that will carry across from that game’s stealth action, though the snippets of gameplay shown above certainly lean on the heavy metal and action. In a quirk of licensing and the timing of game company acquisitions, the game isn’t being published by Paradox Interactive, who hold the rights to the World of Darkness, but by Nacon. You might know Nacon better by their previous name Bigben Interactive, who recently decided to adopt the branding of their peripheral creating subsidiary.
Werewolf: The Apocalypse Earthblood will be released on February 4th for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.
