Werewolf: The Apocalypse — Earthblood
A new trailer for Werewolf: The Apocalypse — Earthblood was given to the world during PDXCon to give us a little taste of how this Werewolf will flow
Everyone has been waiting for something substantial for Werewolf: The Apocalypse — Earthblood for some time now given all of the closed doors showings it has had since it was first announced. Now we jump to the most recent PDXCon where Cyanide Studio and Bigben Interactive were out to show fans just what they have been waiting for. That was at least the thought that we all would also get a nice little bit for it to with the huge resurgence of the Werewolf franchise as of late. Now, we get a nice little taste of what is to come next year for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. A nice little taste that gives us all a look at Cahal and the imagery we would expect from it all.
If you have not been able to tell just yet, there is so little to go into here for Werewolf outside of seeing the three different forms that we will be able to take and a little bit of the gameplay in the background. More or less, this is a good look at the protagonist here for the game and maybe a bit on how Pentex will ruin the planet and other horrors we will have to face. It is really short and a bit more of how the team will be using a lot of the mechanics from the tabletop version of Werewolf: The Apocalypse to drive things forward. It is fun to see but at the end, very little to offer up on how the game will actually be. The hype does still flow well with what I have seen for the game before now. So take that as you will.
Werewolf: The Apocalypse — Earthblood — Reveal Trailer
In a very first trailer revealed in a sneak peek, fans were given a preview of Cahal, a werewolf who has been exiled for several years and who has come back to his endangered tribe. Endron, the oil-producing subsidiary of the multinational Pentex, is installing an extraction site and is destroying the forest around a sanctuary. At times a wolf, at times a human, Cahal can transform into a werewolf when rage consumes him.
Following the presentation of the trailer, Patch gave more details on the principal characteristics of the game. As a big fan of the pen-and-paper game, it’s only natural that he became the driving force for this project within Cyanide. The video game carries over all the main aspects of the pen-and-paper game in an unflinchingly mature universe overflowing with current topics such as the destruction of nature by man and their machines. Rage, a central element of the game, brings a subtlety to the game which requires players to learn to control it in order to make the most of it.
Werewolf: The Apocalypse — Earthblood is the first action-RPG game adapted from the eponymous game. Mature, brutal, and complex, it invites the player to embody Cahal throughout his quest for bloody redemption. He’ll play an essential role in the great war led by the Garous against Pentex, whose activities are devastating the natural world.
