Thanks for a great year!

Everyone here on the WolfQuest team would like to thank all of you for supporting the game. We've had a great year, with steady sales and a growing player base. Check out the graph below, which shows concurrent players in multiplayer games from January 1st to today. ("Concurrent" means "players online each minute" so it's a handy way to see general multiplayer activity.)



Because of your support for the game, we've been able to make some great improvements and additions this year: emotes, more realistic 3D environments, new animals, and a lot more. So now we are ready to start work on -- yes -- a new episode! We've been reading up on the life of a wolf pack as the pups grow up, and consulting with our terrific science advisor, Dr. Dan MacNulty, to figure out what exciting new gameplay the next episode should have.

We'll be sharing more in the coming months. Please note that we have not set a release date, but it isn't anytime soon. (And those who've been around awhile will understand why we'll be very cautious about release predictions :/ ). But we are truly thrilled to finally embark on the long-awaited and much-requested new episode -- and it's all because of your support. So thank you again, and happy new year!

About This Game

LIVE THE LIFE OF A WILD WOLF!

WHAT IS IT?

A wildlife simulation game about wolf ecology.

EMBARK ON A QUEST FOR SURVIVAL!

When the game begins, you are a two-year-old gray wolf born in the Northern Range of Yellowstone National Park. You learned the ways of the wolf in your birth pack. Now it's time for you to learn how to live on your own.Your quest begins on the slopes of Amethyst Mountain and eventually takes you across the Lamar Valley to Slough Creek. There, you and your mate will establish a territory and raise a litter of pups: training them, feeding them, defending them against predators, and finally taking them on a cross-country journey to a summer home. Ultimately, your success will depend on your ability to ensure the survival of your pack.

PLAY ALONE OR WITH FRIENDS!!

In single-player games, learn how to hunt elk, communicate with other wolves, find a mate, establish a den and territory, raise pups, and embark on a perilous journey to a summering site.

In multiplayer games, explore the wilderness and hunt elk together, and now raise pups together! This new version features the entire Slough Creek mission arc, from choosing a den to raising pups and traveling to the rendezvous site. There are two types of multiplayer games:
  • Private games: Invite-only, featuring voice, text, and phrase chat.
  • Public games: Anyone can join, phrase chat or (for players age 13 and up) text chat.

WHAT'S NEW?

This new version improves and expands upon the original game, a grant-funded project that has been downloaded by over five million players around the world since its original release in 2008. Now, for this version 2.7, we've refined gameplay and graphics, added a new player account system with achievements, friends lists, and more, and completely rewrote the animal AI system. We've also added more wolf howls, over two dozen wolf customizations, and emotes -- accurate wolf behaviors to communicate with your packmates. And we created a mysterious new map to explore in single and multiplayer games. As always, there's also an active online community where you can discuss the game with other players and share artwork and stories about wolves. Visit www.wolfquest.org to join in.

MORE NEW STUFF! We've added cougars, foxes, ravens, and a plethora of bird and insect life to the game, along with much richer and varied vegetation. And we have even more improvements and new content the pipeline for later this year.
