New Beginnings (Devblog)

This is a special news announcement because we want to share some information about WolfQuest: Anniversary Edition before the release on Thursday. We’ve decided to scrap a particular feature that we’ve mentioned over the past few years, and we wanted to get the word out before the release. We know it’ll be disappointing to a lot of players, but we do think it’s for the best.

And that feature is: importing your wolf from the old game into the new game. It sounded good two years ago, but since then the new game has grown substantially bigger (and better, I think) and it’s problematic in several ways to import old wolves into it. You can easily recreate your wolf from the old game with the customization features – and it has new options, as well – but you won't be able to import your wolf from the old game. That will be a big disappointment to a lot of people– especially those who have been working to earn more XP and climb the ranks in the old game.

But we’ve thought about it a lot and even aside from the technical issues, we think it's just the right decision — partly because it doesn't really make sense start the game as two year old dispersal wolf with a lot of XP and a high rank. Furthermore, we are developing a totally new XP system with some very cool stuff, but it won’t be ready for awhile yet, and so carrying over XP from the old game gets messy. So we are very sorry to scrap this feature at the last minute, but we hope that everyone will take on the challenge of starting fresh in WQ: Anniversary Edition to chart their course as a young wolf in the Lamar Valley.

We’ve been getting many questions about how to get WQ: Anniversary Edition once it’s released. It’s pretty simple:

* On Steam, if you’ve purchased the old game, the new game will simply appear in your Library, ready to download.

* If you purchased the game on the WolfQuest website or, the new game will be available on your WolfQuest download page. Your email receipt from has the link for that, or you can have that email sent again. See our Knowledge Base for details: {LINK REMOVED}

About This Game


Your purchase of WolfQuest comes with the all-new version of the game, WOLFQUEST: ANNIVERSARY EDITION. Bigger and better gameplay, huge new maps, more animals, and a sophisticated new eco-simulation of Yellowstone fauna. With your purchase, you'll get both the classic WolfQuest 2.7 and the new WolfQuest: Anniversary Edition (which is currently only episode one, Amethyst Mountain, but we will be expanding it over the coming months.) You can make you purchase here or on the WolfQuest: AE store page, you'll get both games either way.


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.
