Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood has an official release date, but it’s a long way away. The brutal action-RPG is coming on February 4, 2021. To make the wait a little easier (or harder, depending on your hype levels), publisher Nacon has released the game’s first gameplay trailer.

We’ve learned about the story of Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood in the game’s first trailer. We were introduced to protagonist Cahal, the evil corporation Endron, and the places we’ll visit. The gameplay trailer, on the other hand, is focused what we’ll do when we get there.

Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood’s gameplay trailer shows us the three forms we can take while playing. The wolf form is stealthy, and can sneak around undetected and track enemies. Cahal’s human form can interact with other people and use weapons. And his Crinos form, aka the werewolf form, can tear enemies limb from limb.

We will use all three forms to protect our tribe from the servants of the Wyrm, a destructive spirit ravaging the planet. Our ultimate goal is to save Cahal’s daughter, but we will find ourselves smack in the middle of a war between the werewolf tribes and Endron.

Since gory combat sells, Cahal spends most of the trailer as a giant werewolf, fighting all sorts of enemies. We even see him go toe to toe with one of the loaders from the movie Aliens.

Near the end, we can see what happens when Cahal gives in to rage. Rage plays a crucial part in combat. You can build it up to deal more damage, but if you’re not careful, you’ll lose control. The trailer shows Cahal mercilessly killing a fellow werewolf, presumably in a fit of uncontrollable rage.

Apart from a gameplay trailer, Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood has a new cinematic trailer. It’s a beautiful video that sets the mood, and served as a teaser to the gameplay video at the top of this post.

Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood is coming to PC via the Epic Games Store, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X in February 2021.
