Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood is currently available as of February 4, 2021 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC through the Epic Game Store. However, for fans of the game who are interested in learning more information about the game, NACON and Cyanide have released two notebooks detailing how the studio created this stealthy and bestial gaming experience from the original World of Darkness universe.
Check out Welcome to the Pack
and The Essence of Rage
the two notebooks from the developers of Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood
In these two videos, the production team for the game speak about Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood, and in particular the project’s Game Director, Julien ‘Patch’ Desourteaux, as well as Bren Bruylant, animator, Clément Demaret, level designer, Simon Decottignies-Renard, narrative designer, Maxime Roy, project manager and Juliette Ruaux, UI/UX artist.
Within the first notebook, Welcome to the Pack, this production team is incredibly passionate about this world that they’ve created, and the excitement truly shows. After taking this world that they had created for the tabletop roleplaying game, and adapting it into a video game universe, the team discusses the overall story of Cahal. As an exiled Garou who is haunted by the history of family tragedy, he sets out on an adventure to not only reunite with his loved ones, but also to fight Endron, a massive corporation hellbent on destroying lifeforms despite its greenwashed facade. Little do people know, the terrible company is run by an entity called the Wyrm, one of the werewolves’ most dangerous enemies.
The second notebook, The Essence of Rage, the team explains Earthblood’s entire orientation, describing the entire experience as incredibly violent and an overall heart-pounding experience. Cahal can shift between three shapes: the Homid form is used to interact with other characters; the Lupus form is excellent at exploration and infiltration; and, finally, the Crinos form, the most exhilarating, gives Cahal the supernatural strength to fight his enemies. This highly-varied gameplay allows the player to freely play as the hero however they choose as they explore the mysterious world of Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood.
