Game Information

Available on:PlayStation 4Dec 6, 2016
Oculus RiftDec 6, 2016

Developer: Red Storm Entertainment

Publisher: Ubisoft

Genre: Strategy

After several attacks on townsfolk, the medieval village of Gallowston has had enough! With a special guidebook in hand, players congregate to vote and eliminate any and all possible werewolves hiding disguised in the village.

Werewolves Within is a fast-paced game of hidden roles and social deduction for five to eight players. In one game, you might be a villager trying their hardest to cleanse the town of werewolves, while minutes later you could be the werewolf, lying and betraying friends in order to survive the vote.

Utilize specific roles and abilities, and the power of persuasion, to assess, deduce, and win the round. Whether playing a vigilant villager or a devious werewolf, no two games are ever the same.

Werewolves Within captures the essence and competitive spirit of playing around the table through VR technology.

When it works and none of the seven players have any audio or connectivity issues, Werewolves Within is competitive, surprisingly friendly, easy to jump into and even easier to play for hours on end, building up an active repertoire of new online friends as you go. When it doesn’t work, though, it’s inexcusably hard to play, and that’s unfortunately very often.

Ubisoft's Werewolves Within is an exciting demo of VR's social capabilities, even if the final product is somewhat bare bones.

Werewolves Within is a cool experiment wrapped into an above-average game. It's limited and laser-focused, but it's good at what it does.

The first few months of PlayStation VR have delivered a vast range of experiences, but I have to say that Werewolves Within is my personal favourite. It’s such a basic concept, but how it’s realised brings players together in a way that’s rarely done in videogames. The community is fantastic and helpful, the rules are easy to pick up, and soon enough you’re mixing it up with people from all over. While there are some bugs that Ubisoft need to iron out Werewolves Within is a must have title for anyone who owns a VR headset.
