Focus Home Interactive has announced a partnership with White Wolf Publishing to license its World of Darkness universe (Vampire: The Masquerade, Werewolf, Mage Ascension) for the development of Werewolf: The Apocalypse.
In the World of Darkness universe, the world’s most devious conspiracies are true, the divide between the rich and the poor is huge, and corruption is life. Humans fall victim to supernatural powers, all struggling for control, in the shadows of declining societies.
Werewolf: The Apocalypse will be developed by Cyanide, whose previous works include Syx: Masters of Shadows, Blood Bowl, and the upcoming Call of Cthulhu game. In it, players will become a werewolf, known as Garou, and become “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.
