There’s a game coming that’s based on White Wolf’s tabletop, Werewolf: The Apocalypse, created in partnership with Focus Home Interactive and developers Cyanide.
Blood for the blood god, and more upcoming PC games for the games god.
Paradox posted the news today, revealing the adaptation would be coming from the developers of Styx: Master of Shadows.
Players will take the role of a Garou, a werewolf with a grudge against humanity, born to fight The Wyrm, harbingers of the apocalypse.
“The world is dying. When will you Rage? The core question of Werewolf: The Apocalypse is more relevant today than ever before and the cooperation with Focus and Cyanide will finally give gamers the opportunity to revel in the raw power and primal spirituality of the Garou,” says Martin Ericsson, lead storyteller of White Wolf. “What is the price of saving the world with fang and claw? Find out for yourself as we explore the darkest corners of a dying planet.”
Focus Home say they’re bringing the adventure to consoles and PC, and they plan to create an adventure that’s faithful to the source material, though it will be accessible to newcomers and fans.
“The World of Darkness universe has always attracted creatives with a strong passion for telling dark and immersive stories,” says Tobias Sjögren, CEO of White Wolf. “So to work closely with the great talent at Focus Home and Cyanide exploring the Werewolves of this universe is an absolutely fantastic experience for us at White Wolf and we are more than excited to see this great IP realised in a videogame.”
We’ll find out more on February 1-2 when Focus hold an event in Paris.
