Werewolf: The Apocalypse is heading to PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One in the near future, thanks to a new partnership between Focus Home Interactive and White Wolf Publishing.
Just in case you aren’t familiar with the latter, White Wolf Publishing is the owner of the World of Darkness universe, which has spawned the likes of Vampire The Masquerade, Werewolf, and Mage Ascension. The new game is being developed by Cyanide, and will allow gamers to become a deadly Werewolf known as Garou.
"Become a werewolf, known as Garou (from French "Loup-garou" meaning werewolf), immersed in the atmosphere of their shamanistic and tribal world. Garou are Werewolf warriors opposed to urban civilization and supernatural corruption, all heading towards inevitable apocalypse,” reads the official press blurb.
Focus Home Interactive President, Cedric Lagarrigue, commented, "We are excited to work on the World of Darkness universe, as this is formidable playground to tell the players a great story. We are also happy to partner with Cyanide Studio in this adventure. They are behind the original wish to adapt this universe, and we are faithful in their ability to create a game that will please both fans of World of Darkness and newcomers.”
New information on Werewolf: The Apocalypse is expected to drop at Focus’s Paris games showcase in early February. The publisher is perhaps best known for distributing the Sherlock Holmes, TrackMania, and Runaway franchises, although has a wide variety of titles under its belt throughout the years including the physical versions of The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us.
