Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood is a 2021 action RPG developed by Cyanide and published by Nacon. The game was released on most major consoles, including PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
Despite being based on the long-running Werewolf: The Apocalypse tabletop RPG, critics were not kind to this title. The game holds a 54 on Metacritic, with many criticizing the game as being boring – arguably the worst sin a video game can commit. Publisher Nacon never released official sales figures for the game, so it’s impossible to say for sure how it performed. However, an educated guess would suggest the studio’s silence on the matter speaks volumes.
Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood Premise
The gameplay of Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood is played from a third-person perspective, as you take control of Cahal, who can take one of three forms: human, wolf, and werewolf. As you progress through the single-player campaign, you’ll need to use all three of these to your advantage, as each has its own gameplay features.
The human form is used in-game to interact with objects, and to speak with other humans. This allows Cahal to go undercover around other humans who are less than friendly to werewolves Meanwhile, the wolf form is primarily used for stealth, exploration, and tracking, and it has the ability to access areas the other two can’t. Finally, the werewolf form will see most of its use during combat. Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood also gives you access to different skill trees, affecting how you build your character via the use of Spirit Points.
The missions themselves come through hub worlds, representing different areas of the American Northwest. As you complete story missions within a hub world, more optional missions are unlocked. The game even has huge choices you can make, which affect the ending of Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood. Beyond these main missions, you can head to the realm of Penumbra, where the Great Spirit of the Waterfall will give you more sidequests to do in the physical world.
Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood Main Characters
Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood uses the deep lore established in the tabletop game to try to create a compelling new story in the series. Fans of the original game will find plenty to love here, with it representing a faithful adaptation for a new medium.
However, beyond the protagonist, the focus of the game is more larger groups than individuals. Here is everyone you need to know about in Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood.
- Cahal: Cahal is the protagonist of Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood. Having exiled himself to control his anger, the werewolf and eco-terrorist Cahal returns to save his tribe, the Fianna, after learning of an existential threat.
- The Fianna Tribe: The Fianna tribe is a group of werewolves at risk of destruction from the world’s humans, due to their commitment to environmental destruction. They were previously home to Cahal, prior to his self-imposed exile.
- Endron: Endron is an oil subsidiary committed to destroying the planet in the name of profit. Their actions go on to affect the Fianna tribe, which leads to Cahal looking to destroy the organization for good.
Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood Titles in the Series
The Werewolf: The Apocalypse tabletop role-playing game was first released back in 1992, as the second addition to White Wolf Game Studios’ “World of Darkness” setting. In the years since, there have been multiple efforts to bring the series to the video game space.
A title named Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Heart of Gaia was in development in the late 1990s, but was eventually cancelled when the developer closed down. Similarly, a PlayStation 1 game titled Werewolf: The Apocalypse was cancelled in 1997. Safe to say, it seemed as though the franchise was cursed in this medium. It wasn’t until 2020 when Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Heart of the Forest finally released that the series debuted as a video game.
Now with two releases in the series, hopefully, we’ll move forward into an era with plenty more Werewolf: The Apocalypse games to come. Given the franchise’s longevity, it’s clear the audience is there, but there has to be a little more quality to convert those who aren’t already fans.
