FAQs about the Tower Fall expansion

What will be in the new episode, Tower Fall?
In the first weeks of June, the pups frolic at the rendezvous site in Slough Creek while their parents bring them their first meals of fresh elk meat. When the elk herds move down into the Lamar Valley, the pack follows — only to find other packs have already established territories in the valley. So they journey further south, up and over Specimen Ridge, then down into the valley of the Yellowstone River. There, on the banks of the Yellowstone, with Tower Fall thundering nearby, the pack makes a new home amidst fellow predators and plentiful prey. Here the pack will stake out a new territory, protect their family from danger, and and raise a new generation of skilled hunters.

Tower Fall will continue the story of your pack and pups, picking up about a month after Slough Creek level ends:
* The pups continue to grow — and so do their appetites.
* Fortunately there are elk and moose calves, and mule deer fawn, around, which make easier hunting for clever wolves.
* As the summer progresses, those pups will grow big enough to join in the hunting trips.
* Rival wolf packs may try to kill your pups and even take over your territory — unless you’re strong and skillful enough to fight them off.

Will it have multiplayer?
The entire Tower Fall mission arc will be playable in both single- and multiplayer (just like Slough Creek - Raise Pups).

Will I have to pay to get it?
Tower Fall will be an in-game purchase (DLC). Currently we imagine the cost will be perhaps $6-$8 though the final cost will be based on the scope and depth of the episode.

Why can't it be free?
It will be quite a large expansion of the game, and so we need to charge for it. We're putting a great deal of work into WolfQuest Anniversary Edition and Tower Fall: creating an entirely new codebase for more exciting and robust gameplay, creating new animals, new missions, and new multiplayer modes. The money to pay the artists, designers, and software developers has to come from somewhere. We've been gratified by players' willingness to pay for WQ 2.7 and believe that the new episode will be well worth the cost.

When will it be released?
When it's done :)

If you've been following WolfQuest for awhile, you know how bad we are at estimating release dates, so for the time being, we're not going to make any public estimates. Tower Fall will be released after WolfQuest: Anniversary Edition.

Will Tim Buzza create the soundtrack?
Yes! He's excited about the prospect -- and so are we.
