Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood dropped its very first trailer this weekend. Unveiled during PDXCon, it provides a glimpse of the RPGs furry-ious potential.
Based on the pen and paper role-playing game of the same name, Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood is a project that intends on bringing the world of werewolves into your front room in an entirely new way. As we found out earlier this month, the game follows the story of Cahal, a werewolf who has been exiled for years. With his tribe in danger, he returns to his home to exact justice against the faceless corporate complex that is set to destroy all he remembers. It is the first video game adaptation of the eponymous game and the very inaugural trailer lives up to expectations.
Backed by plenty of heavy riffs, because what else would you listen to if you’re a werewolf, and drenched in dark overtones, the trailer certainly sets the mood for the upcoming battle with energy giant Endron. While it doesn’t reveal a whole lot about the final gameplay, we do get an idea of what to expect. Looking suitably brutal and, of course, featuring plenty of wolves we get a very brief glimpse of the in-game graphics. There isn’t a huge amount more to glean from the trailer but a post trailer Q&A by Patch, game director at developer Cyanide, confirmed a few other details. We now know that the video game will carry over all the central themes of the pen and paper adventure, including the rage system.
While on his quest, Cahal will need to manage his own rage exploiting it to transform into his wolf frame and unleashing the primal force that hides beneath a human mask. If Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood ends up anything like the trailer suggests then we can expect a brutal, mature, and complex campaign that challenges players as they fight to save Mother Earth from the destructive power of man. Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood is expected to burst onto PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4 in 2020.
