Nacon is out with a new Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood gameplay trailer today.
Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood is an action RPG adapted from the eponymous horror franchise. You play as a werewolf named Cahal. The six-minute gameplay video features developer commentary from the game’s director, Julien “Patch” Desourteaux.
According to the developer:
The biggest challenge for Cyanide was implementing all the mechanics for an action RPG: designing the combat systems, balancing the effects, working on different types of animations, and more… When the main character, Cahal, shifts to his Crinos form, players must feel like a bestial predator. Thus, a “stance” system was implemented so players can switch between agility and ferocity according to the situation.
The team went to considerable effort to create a visceral beat’em up game while staying faithful to the original tabletop roleplaying game. In Werewolf: The Apocalypse, the Garou are warriors of Gaia, the Mother Earth, and are fighting to save the planet from the Wyrm’s corruption. This aspect of the game is visible when the players explore environments like an overexploited forest, an arid desert or an offshore oil rig.
Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood launches on February 4, 2021 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. The digital version includes a free next-gen upgrade from PS4 to PS5 or Xbox One to Xbox Series X and S.
