Studio Cyanide is has announced development for World of Darkness – Werewolf: The Apocalypse
Werewolf: The Apocalypse Announced, Set in the World of Darkness
The World of Darkness is a gritty vision of our own time. The world’s most devious conspiracies are true. The divide between the rich and the poor is huge and corruption is rife. In the shadows of our declining societies, humans fall victim to supernatural horrors, all struggling for control.
Paris-based video game publisher Focus Home Interactive recently announced its partnership with White Wolf Publishing, license owner of the famous World of Darkness universe and it’s intention to have studio Cyanide (Styx: Master of Shadows, Blood Bowl, Call of Cthulhu) develop a video game of one of the most acclaimed licenses from the World of Darkness - Werewolf: The Apocalypse.
If it’s anything at all like the tabletop game players can expect to become a werewolf, known as Garou (from French “Loup-garou” meaning werewolf) as well as be immersed in the atmosphere of the Garou’s shamanistic and tribal world. Garou are Werewolf warriors opposed to urban civilization and supernatural corruption, all heading towards inevitable apocalypse.
“The World of Darkness has always attracted creatives with a strong passion for telling dark and immersive stories. So to work closely with the great talent at Focus Home and Cyanide exploring the savage Werewolves of this universe is an absolutely fantastic experience for us at White Wolf and we are more than excited to see this great and highly relevant IP realized in a video game”, says Tobias Sjögren, CEO of White Wolf.
We can expect more info about the adaptation of this brutal Werewolf mythology in early February.
