It appears we'll have multiple games based on Werewolf: The Apocalypse to look forward to in the near future! On top of the previously announced Werewolf: The Apocalypse -Earthblood, RPG industry veterans Different Tales and Walkabout Games have announced Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Heart of the Forest.
Aside from a very short reveal teaser, details on the game are scarce for now, that includes what platforms the game will land on and when it'll be released. However, a press release did state that the new video game will continue the style of Different Tales’ previous productions and use the iconic World of Darkness setting.
Heart of the Forest was designed by Jacek Brzezinski and Artur Ganszyniec, the leads behind the first game in The Witcher PC series. Both creators are also known as authors of numerous traditional role-playing games, editors of the most influential Polish RPG magazines, and writers of pen-and-paper RPG supplements. In the video game industry, they became known for their work on The Witcher, Dying Light, and Hitman. Their latest titles are the critically acclaimed Wanderlust: Travel Stories and its standalone expansion Wanderlust: Transsiberian.
"As one of our most engaging and popular story settings, Werewolf: The Apocalypse is ripe for new games and experiences, and our partners and licensees have several in the works," said World of Darkness brand manager Sean Greaney. "It’s a good time to be a Werewolf: The Apocalypse fan, and we’re excited to see what the creative minds at Different Tales are cooking up in Heart of the Forest."
