Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Heart of the Forest is the first-ever video game adaptation of the legendary pen-and-paper RPG from the World of Darkness universe.

In the demo, you will experience the start of the adventure, and taste the initial choices your character will face. Every choice affects Maia’s stats, and this in turn reflects on her way of seeing the world. The primary resource is Rage, which opens more proactive paths of progression, but leads to losing sight of the intricacies of the surrounding world. Balancing it will depend entirely on player choices, bringing the game close to its tabletop inspiration.

Discover a hidden world
In the demo, you will visit real-world places located in the Bialowieza Forest, the last primeval wilderness in Europe, and face real legends. These include:

  • The Barrows. This is a real resting place of a tribe that lived in the Puszcza 1,500 years ago and mysteriously vanished.
  • Kazan the Wolf. The most famous wolf in Poland and the symbol of protection over his endangered species. In 2001, he died after being wounded in a fight against another male wolf.
  • Places of Power. There are numerous legends of Places of Power located across the Puszcza. In the 1990s, diviners from around the world used to gather in the forest and search for these sites of magic.
