Paradox Interactive and Focus Home Interactive have come together to announce Werewolf: The Apocalypse, an action RPG based on the pen-and-paper RPG by the same name.

Werewolf: The Apocalypse will the first game to come out of White Wolf since the company was bought by Paradox Interactive in 2015. The game is being developed by Cyanide (who are currently working on Call of Cthulhu as well) for “consoles and PC”.

For those not familiar with White Wolf’s Werewolf IP, the game takes place with the World of Darkness universe – a darker, more corrupt version of our own world, where most conspiracy theories are true and creatures like vampires, werewolves and ghosts exist. In Werewolf: The Apocalypse, we’ll play as one of the Garou, a werewolf warrior “opposed to urban civilization and supernatural corruption.”

We’ll get more information about Werewolf: The Apocalypse during “le What’s Next de Focus”, an event showcasing all of Focus’s upcoming game on February 1.

This is the first game based in World of Darkness since the excellent cult classic Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines in 2004. Numerous companies have tried to develop and publish games set in this universe, but without success. The latest victim was the World of Darkness MMO, developed by CCP and abandoned in 2014.
