I’m not sure why CGI teaser trailers that only last for a few seconds to promote a new upcoming game are a thing, but nevertheless developer Cyanide and publisher Bigben Interactive are using that very method for Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood. The forthcoming title is set to release sometime in 2020 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
Although we have no idea whether or not this game is any good based on a snarling werewolf that happens to have some stuff coming out of its eyes, we’ll find out soon when the German games event rolls around next week.
If you want to, you can check out the newly released trailer below that clocks in at 13 seconds of nothingness, which would have been better as a tweet to get the word out, but I digress:
“Find out more about Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood at Paradox Con on October 18th – 20th in Berlin.”
In case you don’t know, Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood made headlines back in early 2017 when Focus Home Interactive announced it.
In addition to the above, Focus Home Interactive was the original team publishing the game in question, but after Bigben Interactive acquired Cyanide a year later (in early 2018), all publishing rights are now in the hands of Bigben Interactive ever since November 2018.
Since gamers and potential fans alike have no gameplay to go by, according to the devs, Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood is an action-RPG adaptation of the role-playing game from the Classic World of Darkness line by White Wolf Publishing.
The upcoming 2020 game has players assuming the role of Cahal — a banished werewolf forced to return to the aid of his endangered clan — who must master the “Rage” within him to punish all those that pollute, destroy, and corrupt Gaia / Earth.
Also on a quest for redemption, players will see Cahal play a pivotal role in the Great War of the Garou against Pentex, which is said to be a “powerful corporation” whose actions are disrupting the ebb and flow of nature.
If all of that sounds like fun, the game headed for PC, PS4, and Xbox One will make an appearance at PDXCon or Paradox Con on October 18th, 2019.
