White Wolf and Focus Home Interactive Work to Deliver New Werewolf Game
White Wolf, creators of the World of Darkness board game series, just partnered with Focus Home Interactive to make a licensed video game based of Werewolf: The Apocalypse. Game development studio Cyanide, the creators of Blood Bowl and Call of Cthulhu, will be taking reigns for this adaptation.
In this adaptation, you will be taking control of Garou, a werewolf who must fight The Wyrm, a villain that's leading the world to the Apocalypse. Players will focus on raw power and rage when exploring this new world. According to Martin Ericsson, Lead Story Teller of White Wolf:
"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. What is the price of saving the world with fang and claw?"
This is not the first video game adaptation set in the World of Darkness universe. Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines is considered a cult classic and a pinnacle in fantasy storytelling. In Bloodlines you explore the vampire culture present in Los Angeles as a new fledgling. Hopefully, the same immersion will be found in this upcoming title.
