Lost River is Released!

The new, expanded Lost River map for WQ:AE is now available as DLC.

Lost River is a fictional map set somewhere in the West. It is a mysterious town, abruptly abandoned by humans for unknown reasons and is gradually returning to nature. You can now raise pups in Lost River! You will also be able to play the complete Saga in Lost River, once that is released.

How do I purchase it?

In the game, click Start New Game, then select Lost River in the map pulldown, which will open a new window with option to Preview or Purchase the game. The preview option will let you enter the Lost River map for ten minutes, limited to a small portion of the map, so you can make sure that Lost River runs well on your computer. If you would like to purchase it, return to the main menu and click the Purchase button after selecting Lost River again in the map pulldown. That will take you to Steam or (depending on where you purchased the game) so you can buy the DLC. If you are purchasing it through, you must then register your purchase with your WolfQuest game account to unlock it in the game.

What's Next?

The Saga Continues

The story of your pack will continue in the Saga -- an upcoming expansion (free to anyone who owns the game) where you can live the entire life of your wolf. The seasons roll by as you raise a new litter of pups every year: feeding them, defending them from competitors, and helping them learn how to hunt big prey. Yearlings help with the new pups until they too may decide to disperse and join or form another pack. With tenacity and skill (and some luck), build your legacy of skilled hunters and pack leaders! Can you survive long enough to become a legendary wolf of Yellowstone?

Once the game is completed on PC/Mac, we will turn our attention to other platforms.
