Hello everyone, I’m Julien “Patch” Desourteaux, the game director of Werewolf: The Apocalypse- Earthblood,* takes a deep breath* a beat’em up-oriented action-RPG. At Cyanide, this is our first major incursion into the action genre, and what better channel to start than playing as a werewolf?
As Cahal, you will take part in a bloody campaign against the sin oil and gas corporation Endron, whose tasks are upsetting the balance of nature and peril the way of life of the Garou( the Werewolves) and humanity as a whole.
The development team and I are very excited to share more details about the game and a first look at pure gameplay footage, sauntering you through some of the forms, abilities, and skills of Cahal, an exiled werewolf who has returned to aid his endangered tribe.
If you are not familiar with the Werewolf: The Apocalypse universe, let me explain a couple of important plot times. Werewolf in our competition are not the normal villains you expect from works or movies. In the World of Darkness, Werewolves are fighters, advocates of quality against the subvert force of the Wyrm, a tone of devastation and chaos.
The Werewolves are almost an antithesis to the Wyrm, with their own culture, beliefs, and social hierarchy. Cahal is an Ahroun, a warrior from the Fianna tribe; he’s a pitiless fighter and is intensely protective of their own families. There are many different Tribes that you will encounter throughout the game, each with their own unique perception of the world.
Unlike a horror movie from the 80 s, being a Werewolf isn’t a curse. It offers great power, conceding the ability to shapeshift into 3 different forms.
The Human or “Homid” Form
This is the main form you will make use of for anything related to social interaction, spoofing computers, and stealth kills. You can calmly get the jump on enemies, act speechles takedowns, or pick off an opponent from afar with your crossbow. With some handy ameliorates, you can also use the crossbow to disable electrical systems.
The Wolf or “Lupus” Form
As a human, sometimes there are locates you just can’t get into. It’s these epoches where you’ll be grateful for the rapidity and agility of the wolf. The Wolf form will help you navigate through ventilates and move rapidly between include to avoid being detected by the guards. Speed and agility are the name of the game, and it’s just as valuable when you’re trying to take a stealthy approach.
The Werewolf or “Crinos” Form
This is the form that everyone immediately thinks about when you sounds the word “Werewolf”. These towering wolves are powerful beings, capable of devastating acts of carnage. A Crinos is the ultimate combat machine, and if infiltration flunks, it’s time to go big or go home.
Brutal, fast-paced combat
Werewolves are not known for their persistence, and your internal Rage will collect as you mutely take down foes. Sooner or later, you will have to fight your channel through.
For our first foray into the action genre, we really wanted to design impactful, merciless combat-ready organizations. Something that would bring these strong beasts to life. We went through lots of iterations, balancing the differences between moves and antagonists, with a focus on strength, capability, and invasion. Every move, every living needed that “snap” and “crunch” to ensure each strike feels ponderous and satisfying.
Rage is at the heart of combat: it builds up as you injure opponents and allows you to perform a range of special moves, from loosing a big area-of-effect attack to rushing towards an enemy.
The Crinos also has two different duel stances, each suitable for different situations.
In Agile Stance, you can perform fast onslaughts and is rapidly between foes. This comes especially helpful when you need to get closer to arrayed antagonists, or when cornered.Heavy Stance relinquishes agility for better concentration and defiance, but it’s a chance worth taking to quickly dispose of basic foes and interrupt the lookout of tougher foes.
As the fight goes on, your Frenzy meter will also fill up, and formerly it steams over Cahal can release his feeling. Frenzy is a double-edged sword: while active, it increases the move and dominance of your strikes and allows you to unleash spectacular, dedicated combat moves. But in return, you can’t block, heal or use any other special move until the Fury gauge empties.
We precisely have a few weeks left before you unleash your hysterium, so we hope you enjoyed the video and this article! If you want to hear more about video games, follow our social networks by searching for “WerewolfVGame”.
