I've got a copy of Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood in hand for review. That's all I'm allowed to say about that. Except that you can expect our full review on launch day, February 4.
This developer diary for Earthblood, titled Welcome to the Pack, warms you up for the eco war raging throughout Werewolf: The Apocalypse. The first dev, without irony, says we'll get to play as a werewolf (naturally) in a world much darker than our current one (they'll have to prove it). But the noble goal of protecting the Earth's environment is offset by the moral cost of murdering rooms full of security guards, but letting scientists live, and being labeled an ecoterrorist.
It's good to hear that narrative designer is a tabletop Vampire: The Masquerade veteran, and switched his dungeon mastering over to Werewolf: The Apocalypse when development began on the game. Many other team members likewise knew what was up with having a tabletop Werewolf vocabulary in place on day one.
If nothing else, playing as a werewolf seems like a great way to look like a 50-year-old Hells Angel One-Percenter but still worship something as Tolkien-sounding as Mother Gaia. At the same time, it's great to paint the whole room red with blood, then revert back to being a human reflecting on all the carnage they've created. Good times.
Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood launches February 2 and is coming out on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox One X|S, and PC.
