  • White Wolf and Focus Home Interactive to release video game adaptation of WtA

    Well, since I didn't see anyone else mentioning this yet, have a link to the official announcement at https://www.paradoxinteractive.com/e...he-apocalypse/

    Nice to see the guys downstairs start their revival on the screen.


    “I have long since forsaken mortal blood. It offers me nothing but the stale taste of mayflies. I have partaken of Luna's ever-changing children and dined on the scholars of Magic. I have bled monsters, born and created. No more. Tonight I drink the blood of gods and slake my thirst for another thousand years of night.”

    Very, very happy about this.

    Honestly, I've been waiting for what seems like forever for another game set in the World of Darkness.

    After beating Redemption 56 times, Hunter the Reckoning(all 3 of them) 7 times, and Bloodlines around 134 times, we were due for a Werewolf: The Apocalypse videogame.

    Now I hope we don't have to wait much longer or I'm going to rage.

      I hope they change the "When will you Rage?" to this forum's present tagline of "how will you Rage?". That "old school" summary style continues to be not particularly encouraging.

        I've always liked the original "When Will You Rage?" tagline. Hope they go with it.

        "How Will You Rage?" is fine, too. Either way, I hope they do WtA justice. I haven't been this excited for a videogame in a long time.

        Wonder if it will come to consoles...

          I like the 'When Will You Rage' line also, Fat Larry. It is a savage call to arms that feels somewhat ominous and inevitable...

            Very interesting news and hopefully this will come out good and we can rejoice over a splendid version of the World of Darkness. So in short, good to see that Werewolf gets some digital love! Furry eco-terrorists for everybody! (intended as a joke if someone would think otherwise of it)

              Okay, as someone who has played both vampire games, some thoughts;

              It better be a bioware style rpg. Because WtA is about the pack and not a lone wolf. VtMB was a great game, but I think what hurt it was that you never truly had a chance to have true allies. Also, Redemption's cast was pretty silly.

                A friend and I were just talking about that this morning! "Think it'll be multiplayer?" // 'Maybe, but it as least needs to be multi-character. It's Werewolf! Gotta have a pack!"

                  Maybe if it were old Bioware. New Bioware is terrible.

                  And the cast of Redemption was fantastic. It had the only fish-Malk I've ever liked. Pink and Erik were great, as were Lily and Sam the Nossie. I loved Redemption.

                        In regards to a pack I agree. The ability to get a pack together should be fairly important, but to be honest I'd rather have a solo werewolf than struggling with a pack of imbecile AI.

                        In regards to Bloodlines I kind of liked how you were always on your own. It drove home the point that vampires tend to be loners and that they seldom forge healthy, to my understanding of the term, relations with others. Running around with half a dozen best-friends-forever characters would kind of ruin this point. And no, I've never played Redemption.

                          Why not do something similar to the team mechanics in GTA V? be able to switch between packmates on the fly, and maybe have Kinfolk fill the same role that the hired hackers, gunman and drivers (as well as the various hired help in Payday 2 heists) did as basically filling defined jobs on the major quests.

                            Honestly, never had an issue with DAIs AI, after I found what settings worked for me.

                            Bloodlines has that, I agree. It is the best intro to WoD in video game form so far. But only an intro, because a huge part of VtM is also dealing with your allies politically and socially. Bloodlines limits you to only being a delivery boy.

                            As for Redemption's cast, there ARE some good characters. Anezka is awesome and really won over me by the end with her schemes. But Christoff is a bit ehh, Wilhelm is okay. And yes, Sam and Lily are actually good characters.

                              Dragon Age Inquisition's biggest issue was leaning on MMO style grinding for resources and a world much bigger and harder to traverse than it needed to be. AI was never a huge issue for me.
