Werewolf: The Apocalypse videogame will be at E3

Werewolf: The Apocalypse was the second tabletop RPG in the World of Darkness setting, a follow-up to Vampire: The Masquerade. While Vampire gave us two videogames so far with a third on the way (opens in new tab), we've been waiting for a Werewolf game for a while. 

Back in 2017 (opens in new tab) it was announced that Cyanide (Call of Cthulhu, Styx) were working on one with Focus Home as the publisher, but a couple of things have changed since then. For starters it's moved home to publisher Bigben, and it's picked up a subtitle: Earthblood.

Most recently it's been announced that Earthblood will be shown at E3 2019. Early word is that it'll be an action-RPG about an exiled werewolf returning to help his clan, and will involve managing a rage characteristic.

Werewolf: The Apocalypse—Earthblood is due in 2020.

Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get. Jody edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and he eventually lived up to his promise to play every Warhammer videogame.
