mark of wolves
Next week will see the launch of Cyanide's latest foray into the "World of Darkness" universe Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood. Previously teased with some of the game's most metallic trailers, this new video gives us a look at our screaming hero Cahal in action.
Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood will tell the story of Cahal – a “Garou” who went into exile for being too TRUE – whose violent rage and penchant for ultraviolence are called upon after a ruthless oil company begins to devastate his ancient tribe. Earth. The corporation, Endron, is actually a capitalist front for "The Wyrm", an evil spirit bent on destroying the planet. This is the real deal, guys.
Not taking too much benevolence for this attack on his homeland, Cahal is forced into hiding in revenge against Endron. As demonstrated in the trailer above, our protagonist can use three shifting forms to infiltrate and eliminate the evil society: "Lupus" keeps things on a relatively human level, "Homid" enhances takedowns and traversals, and finally the gory mayhem of "Crinos" for when it's time for things to get a little slashy and biting. Rawr.
The action-RPG looks like fun cathartic carnage, with publisher Nacon hoping it will unleash the beast in us all. Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood releases February 4 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC via the Epic Games Store.
