I don't know if that's what they are going for, but the Werewolf game seems like it could be a decent adventure in the same vein as the recent Deus Ex games, if they have some good level design and extra abilities for the human/wolf forms. I wouldn't know about the RPG part, though, since they seem more focused on the action.
This game is going to come out before Bloodlines 2, which stings a little, but what can you do?

I don´t think that you can compare this with Deus Ex or any game with huge RPG elements. Maybe you can upgrade your fixed hero but this an action game first.
By the way, here is the new trailer:


I am well aware that this isn´t fullprice at just 50 bucks but i am sorry this doesn´t look that is even worth that much. Maybe for 10 or 20 bucks in a sale.

I am not sure the recent Deus Ex games have huge RPG elements, although they do have some, and I like them quite a bit. As for why this reminds me of that type of game, is because they seem to want to give players multiple approaches for the maps (going all out, or trying to use stealth). Furthermore it has hacking to disable things like turrets and cameras, seems to have a few paths available in one of the map shown, and so on. It doesn't mean it's going to be as good as a Deus Ex game, of course, but it gives me the same vibes.

Discount Deus Ex isn't a bad thing to strive for, the main question remains if there are skills and whatnot you can take to really craft a unique character for your playstyle, or if it's a more linear affair.

You gotta see this game as VTM: Redemption. It's based on an RPG... but that's as far as it goes.


It might turn out to be surprising, who knows ? But I don't think I'll be putting it on my guaranteed buys list.

For sure. I can wait for reviews, videos with more complete gameplay and story, even a price drop, assuming what I see interest me, but I see no need to commit to buying it right away. Once upon a time I was thinking about buying Bloodlines 2 at launch or near launch, but that seems like such a long time ago now.

At least a game about vampires is a good candidate to raise from its own grave.  :rofl:

We'll see what springs out of the coffin this year, hopefully, and then we'll have a diagnosis. Right now it's Schrödinger's vampire.  :cometome:

Well the reviews are out. And they aren´t terrible good nor bad. Earthblood is a nice mediocre game with (more early) PS3 graphics.https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2021-02-04-werewolf-the-apocalypse-earthblood-review
My advice if you are interessted just wait for a sale. Maybe 10-20 Bucks it could be worth the time and money.

I'll probably wait further for the users' reviews as well before making up my mind, but thanks for the heads up! Waiting for a sale seems like a good idea, though.

Apparently Werewolf: Earthblood is garbage:https://www.ign.com/articles/werewolf-the-apocalypse-earthblood-review


Then again, IGN was garbage long before this game was in development :rofl:
