The upcoming action role-playing game Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood finally has a proper trailer.
At the beginning of the video, we can see a forest being cut down as worldwide pollution climbing to horrifying levels. We are then introduced to Cahal, an eco-terrorist werewolf and the protagonist of the game.
Exiled from his tribe for seven years, Cahal returns to protect his endangered family from the vampire-run Pentex Corporation. Endron, the oil-producing subsidiary of Pentex, is installing an extraction site by the tribe’s territory and destroying the forest surrounding it.
Those a little more familiar with the Werewolf: The Apocalypse pen-and-paper should recognize the name Pentex. They will also be interested to know Cahal is a member of the tribe Fianna, a group of Gaelic werewolves.
The trailer was first revealed during PDXCon (Paradox Interactive’s game celebration), where Cyanide’s Game Director provided more information about the game and its features. Here’s an overview:
Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood is a third-person, single-player action RPG. The player explores various areas in the American Northwest. Within these areas, the player plays through world-changing missions that can lead to more secondary missions.
Penumbra, which is a place between the physical world and the spirit world, can be visited by the player to receive sidequests or challenges.
Playing as a human or werewolf, each has its own gameplay mechanics: the wolf form is used for exploration, tracking, spying, and stealth, as well as being able to pass through narrow passages. The human form is used for interactions.
Rage is a central element, the same as in the pen-and-paper. It rises as your character learns about problems humans have caused, such as pollution and greed. The player must learn to control their rage; if its overflows, the werewolf will enter a frenzied state, which makes him more powerful, but also makes it harder to distinguish friend from foe.
Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in 2020.Some of our posts include links to online retail stores. We get a small cut if you buy something through one of our links. Don't worry, it doesn't cost you anything extra.
