Albinism is not depicted in WolfQuest.

In Yellowstone National Park — the chosen setting for the Gray wolf campaign — there have been no known historical reports or sightings of albino wolves, thus leading to the decision not to include them in-game.[1]



Misconceptions[]

A common misconception is that some white coats are in fact albinos. This is false!

  • Classic and Legacy depicted a "purer" white-coated pup. See the article's own trivia section for details.
  • Anniversary Edition changes the depiction, with actual white coats being more cream-tinted than pure white, while "white" coats are actually "gray" coats, based on the game's own filenames for them. They feature more tinting, mottling and fur detail, thus they are not considered pure white, nor can they be considered leucistic or albino.

An uncommon misconception involves the mislabelling of the adult white coats, such as those included in the Yellowstone Wolf Coats add-on. Some of the wolves in the aforementioned texture pack are genetically-black; their coats whitened with age, but this does not change their coat's genetic makeup from black to gray.

An even older, pre-release screenshot exists showcasing an adult with an almost completely white coat, shared by former developer WileE. This coat never made it into the full release, and received more mottling, flecks, and coat detail in the final game.[2]
