World of Darkness Based ‘Werewolf: The Apocalypse’ Game In Development at Cyanide
Focus Home Interactive is partnering with White Wolf on Werewolf: The Apocalypse, a game that will be set in the popular World of Darkness universe.
Werewolf: The Apocalypse will be developed by French studio Cyanide (Blood Bowl, Styx, Call of Cthulhu). In the game, players will become a Garou, a werewolf born to fight the corruption of The Wyrm, a supernatural force that intends to drive the world towards the Apocalypse. More information will be revealed at the upcoming Focus Home event due in Paris, February 1st-2nd.
Tobias Sjögren, CEO of White Wolf, said:
The World of Darkness universe 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 Werewolves of this universe is an absolutely fantastic experience for us at White Wolf and we are more than excited to see this great IP realised in a video game.
Martin Ericsson, Lead Story Teller of White Wolf, added:
The world is dying. When will you Rage? The core question of Werewolf: The Apocalypse is more relevant today than ever before and the cooperation with Focus and Cyanide will finally give gamers the opportunity to revel in the raw power and primal spirituality of the Garou. What is the price of saving the world with fang and claw? Find out for yourself as we explore the darkest corners of a dying planet.
Cédric Lagarrigue, President of Focus Home Interactive, also commented on the partnership:
We are pleased to partner with White Wolf to bring Werewolf: The Apocalypse to life in a video game for consoles and PC. 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.
As a reminder, White Wolf was acquired by Paradox Interactive in October 2015.
