Werewolf: The Apocalypse Fifth Edition Core Rulebook pre-order
According to an official press release, the Core Rulebook for Werewolf: The Apocalypse Fifth Edition will be coming to store shelves on August 31, 2023. This will be the third TTRPG within the World of Darkness franchise to receive a Fifth Edition update. The first one was the highly influential Vampire: The Masquerade, followed by Hunter: The Reckoning.
Furthermore, the start of a new edition includes new changes to the lore and status quo of the organizations. For example, Vampire: The Masquerade 5e introduced The Second Inquisition, a zealous group of human vampire hunters that uncovered the secret world of vampires thanks to smartphone cameras and social media. Werewolf: The Apocalypse Fifth Edition is no different. Players will still play as the Garou, warriors caught between man and wolf, but in a world where the Earth is dying. Climate change has already choked the life out of Gaia. The ice is melting and the forests are withering. Millions are dying in favor of the few. Despite all of the efforts of the Garou to save the planet, the apocalypse has begun.
The Core Rulebook of Werewolf: The Apocalypse Fifth Edition is available for pre-order right now on Renegade's website. The 300-page full-color rulebook will include everything players will need to create a character and form a troupe of like-minded werewolves as you fight back against the forces of destruction and avarice. You'll be able to join one of eleven werewolf tribes, each one with its own unique lore to explore and enrich play. Finally, the book will include an introductory adventure to help new players get started. Finally, if you pre-order the physical book from Renegade's website, you will receive a PDF copy of the Core Rulebook at no additional charge.
