Vote for a New Animal!

Yellowstone — “The Serengeti of North America” — is chock-full of animals. We’ve always wanted WolfQuest to portray this rich diversity, but it has definitely been a long haul. The original game featured only four species: wolf, elk, coyote, and snowshoe hare. WQ 1.5 added grizzlies, and then eagles appeared (occasionally) in WolfQuest 2 and 2.5. And the total stayed there, at six, for many years.

Why so few? Animals are expensive! They’re expensive to model, to animate, and just as importantly, to integrate believably into the game with realistic AI behaviors. Fortunately, with the success of WolfQuest 2.7, we were soon able to more than double the number of species represented in the game, with fox, cougar, moose, and ravens, plus a small variety of birds and insects.

And happily, we’re not done yet! Thanks to the continued success (e.g. sales) of the game, we’re able to add yet more to WolfQuest 3. We’ve announced two new species — mule deer and beavers — and have several more in mind. But since every animal, even smaller and simpler species like beaver, are complicated and costly efforts, we want to hear from you: What animal would you most like to see added to the game in WolfQuest 3 and Tower Fall? Here’s a list of what we’re considering. Which one will you vote for? And why? (Bison are not listed here because we already plan to add them in the future.)

Bighorn sheep
Black bear

By Pupular Demand

Pups are such a central attraction of WolfQuest that it’s hard to believe the game lacked them initially. But those furballs we added in WolfQuest 2 back in 2010 now are getting a bit long in the tooth, so we decided to remake them along with the rest of the game for WolfQuest 3. Even better, pups will not only look a lot better, but they’ll act in more interesting ways as well. Like your mate, they’ll have personalities: Bold, shy, lazy or energetic, they’ll interact with you and with each other in even more delightful ways than before. They might even get sick!

How would you like to interact with your pups? Post your ideas below!

About This Game


We're remaking the game from the ground up! Bigger and better gameplay, huge new maps, more animals...and it'll be a free update! To be released in the first half of 2018, followed by an all-new episode, Tower Fall, which will be DLC for purchase. Learn more!



A wildlife simulation game about wolf ecology.


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.


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.


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 to join in.

MORE NEW STUFF! We've added cougars, moose, foxes, ravens, and a plethora of bird and insect life to the game, along with much richer and varied vegetation.
