    Not sure if I should be excited or worried, but Cyanide will develop the next WoD PC game. Of course, it won't be a Vampire game. Paradox needs to test the water. But WereWolf seems to be quite the good choice for I think it's the second most well known franchise of the WoD universe.

    Werewolf is more interesting for me and Cyanide seems to be cabable on a technical level. Let's hope they do some good quests and don't make the game too linear.

    This could be cool but Werewolf never appealed to me as much as Vampire. If they wanted to do something other than VtM they should have went with Exalted.

    Will it be RPG? Anyway, that would compete with Vampyr.
    But imagine it! Games about werewolfes like Vampires:The Masquarade, many clans to choose and present graphics!

    Cautiously optimistic.

    I just hope this isn't Styx trudging around in wolves' hide.

    There's some hope to be had. Although Cyanide aren't known for their roleplaying games (looking forward to Call of Cthulhu), they did a good job with the Chaos League and Bloodbowl games, so as long as they don't sell Get of Fenris as DLC, I'm sold.

    Of course it's gonna be popamole: it's by Cyanide!

    More seriously, Cyanide has done RPG (GoT, of Orcs and Men) and non RPG (Pro cycling Manager). They've done good (Blood Bowl II) and less good (Confrontation). Popamole (Styx) and TRUE BRO (Blood Bowl). What I know of them is that they're rel nerds and I'm quite sure they're passionate. But are they competent? As Morgoth says, cautiously optimistic.

    Not expecting anything but a shitty action game advertisement.
    Even VtM:B was a miracle. Making a decent cRPG out of Werewolf (nuWoD's Forsaken to boot)? I have no faith in any dev being that competent or the producers taking a chance to try it.

    Relax, man. If the title of the game is anything to go by, it should be oWoD. There's a reason all those WoD 20 anniversary games got made.

    So basically the game will be like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zWQa1ig_4rQ

    WoD Werewolves have same power level as wolverine in human form without the admantine claws. Player being part of a native american wereworlf tribe going up against evil corps, vamps, internal infighting, and other groups potentially sounds like a awesome game.

    I liked Blood Bowl, but I didn't like GoT. Not expecting anything from this.

    The Games of Thrones RPG was pretty decent.

    This smells like ARPG for consoles.

    Time to get our furry on.

    Good to hear they found someone interested and honestly, Cyanide ain't that bad even if they do have a lot of obvious "we did to keep the lights on" deals under their belt.

    Just stay away from observatories, a werewolf's natural enemy. They'll sneak up on you if you're not careful.

    Better than the tv series. And they made up everything, not half of it.
