Publisher Nacon and developer Cyanide Studio have just announced Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood, their upcoming third-person hack-and-slash action-adventure title which is set to release for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via the Epic Games Store early next year.

An overview of the game can now be found on its Epic Games Store page. Inspired by the tabletop game Werewolf: The Apocalypse, players assume the role of Cahal, a powerful Garou (the Garou are a race of werewolves, living secretly alongside humans and are battling to prevent the coming of the apocalypse) that can transform into a wolf and a Crinos, a huge and fearsome beast. The lifelong mission of every Garou is to punish those who defile Mother Earth (Gaia) and to do it effectively, they must master all their three forms: human, wolf and Crinos.

Each form has its own advantages, such as the wolf being able to sneak undetected, the human being able to interact with other people, and the Crinos, aka Werewolf, to use the player’s pent-up rage to tear their enemies apart. Players will be controlling Cahal as he goes against Endron, a powerful oil company that is serving a much more sinister entity: the Wyrm, which is a destructive spirit ravaging the planet.

The one-minute trailer showcases some of the game’s mechanics, such as the wolf form’s ability to sneak around stealthily whilst in enemy installments. The human form, on the other hand, has the ability to wield weapons, perform stealth attacks, and, I’m assuming, the ability to interact with the in-game world’s puzzles such as opening doors or breaking into rooms. Finally, and perhaps the most exciting part, is Cahal’s Crinos, or Werewolf form, which allows him to unleash devastating attacks and tear down both man and machine. I’m assuming this form is more of a “last resort” thing that players can’t just use willy nilly. It may also have some drawbacks since Earthblood's overview mentions that “if you don’t contain your rage, it can destroy you once again.”

Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood will be launching on February 4, 2021 for current and next-gen consoles and PC via the Epic Games Store.
