During our time at E3 2019, we saw a load of interesting and unique titles, none more so than Cyanide's upcoming project called Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood. This experience is about being a werewolf and fighting for Gaia, a nature-bound entity, in a world where corporations are bringing the apocalypse to Earth. To get a further understanding about this title, we spoke with game director Julien Desourteaux and project manager Raphaël Isnard, who told us exactly what the approach was.
"We didn't want to have this cliché, we wanted to have this beast that we are proud of the result of our werewolf," said Desourteaux. "You feel the rage in the eyes and when you're overwhelmed by the rage, you will see this sort of worm stuff coming on your body, that you'll want to rip off. One of the inspirations was Princess Mononoke because we felt the message was sort of the same, as in its more brutal in the world of darkness."
Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood currently doesn't have a release date, although it is scheduled to launch on PC, PS4, and Xbox One when it finally drops.
What do you think of Cyanide's approach to werewolf design?
