There have been some incredibly interesting movements this October, with some scary announcements made across miniatures, cards and board games this Spooky Season.

Brand Update - Werewolf: The Apocalypse & Hunter: The Reckoning // World of Darkness

Celebrating 'Month of Darkness', World of Darkness has come forward with an announcement, resurrecting two titles from White Wolf into a new edition. Werewolf: The Apocalypse and Hunter: The Reckoning will be making a return to the tabletop, with updates into their 5th Edition of the game systems.

Returning to the tabletop first brings Hunter: The Reckoning in its fifth edition, puts players in a world where they are hunting the more fearsome of creatures that come out to play when it is dark. Yet this does not mean that humanity is closing to extinction - changing the world for the greater good against all things evil:

“Hunter: The Reckoning is unique in the World of Darkness in that it gives hope to humanity. Hunters are fighting back against the terrors that go bump in the night, giving humanity a fighting chance against impossible odds. Hunters also position themselves in opposition to larger hunting orgs, which are often the tools of an unjust status quo. Working on Hunter helps realize the aspirational element of the World of Darkness, that the things you do can change the world for the better.”

A little later on the timeline will bring Werewolf: The Apocalypse, a storytelling game where players will be encouraged to explore the environmental apocalypse on earth as werewolves, coming across a plethora of different enemies to take down and progress through civilisation.

"The Apocalypse as we are envisioning it today is a storytelling game about radical solutions that explore an environmental apocalypse where a range of injustices provoke urgency and violence. It’s a game about tearing apart your enemies… and living with the repercussions. It also is a game that explores the differences between people and the mutual sacrifices made to effect — or endure — global consequences."

Notably, the home of Vampire: The Masquerade - World of Darkness have promised to share more information about the upcoming projects over the course of October as part of 'Month of Darkness', including previews and a peek into the future of the game systems.

Have you played Werewolf: The Apocalypse or Hunter: The Reckoning before? Will you be intrigued to pick up the new edition when it is released?
