Wolfquest 2.7

Teaser shown on the official WQ social groups.

Eduweb released the iOS version of WolfQuest on September 2, 2016, for the following recommended devices:
  • iPhone 5 or newer.
  • iPad Air or newer. 
  • iPad Mini 2 or newer.

It is available on the App Store.


The app itself is freely available at no cost, with the first level of the game (Amethyst Mountain) and basic wolf customizations unlocked. Players can purchase the complete game (which includes episode 2, multiplayer, the Lost River map) and customization packs from a "Shop" panel within the game. Revenues from these sales help fund additional development of the game, perhaps making it possible for the team to expand towards a new episode[1].

Features & Improvements


  • User accounts with achievements, friends lists, packs, and messaging.

Wolf Avatar:

  • Furry coats on all wolves
  • Ten new coat colors (based on two realworld Yellowstone packs)
  • Ten injured coats (using new coats from Yellowstone packs)
  • Seven new howls
  • Other special customizations: radio collar, injured ears, injured leg, and more
  • New emotes and emotes interface: Growl, whine, tail up, ears forward, grin, tail under and avert gaze

Main Gameplay:

  • Difficulty levels determine frequency of elk carcasses and degree of challenge of raising and protecting pups.
  • Elk and wolf scent is affected by wind direction, so players must pay attention to wind to find scent trails and to approach elk from downwind. 
  • Bull elk and strong female elk stand and defend themselves rather than fleeing.• Dispersal wolves (potential mates) become available based on player XP.
  • Grizzly bears can sometimes be chased off of carcasses. Do you feel lucky? Well, do ya?
  • Emotes to express yourself to your packmates.
  • Hundreds of bugfixes, including puppy-coat color inheritance, getting stuck near water, elk health bar displays, and private game unreliability.

New Animals:

  • Cougars roaming the wilderness, feeding on carcasses, and lounging on rocks
  • Foxes roaming the wilderness and mousing
  • Ravens feeding on carcasses


  • Improved AI behaviors for all animals
  • Elk and AI wolves are smarter about avoiding obstacles


  • More ambient sounds (distant wolf packs howling,
  • Dawn Chorus of birds at dawn, frogs in Slough Creek springtime, distant elk bugling in Amethyst, and more)
  • Greatly enhanced 3D environments, especially on Mac/Windows versions


  • Multiplayer switched to Photon back-end for more robust MP sessions.
  • Slough Creek co-op mission: up to five players can play as parent and older offspring. Includes the entire arc of this level, from finding a den to the final journey to the Rendezvous site.

  • Integrated, in-game reporting system.

All images in this gallery are pre-release; the app is still in development with no definite release date as of yet. You can find these on this topic of the WolfQuest community forum.

Note that only one of the three "mark territory" buttons will be used in the final version[8].

In-App Purchases

Main article: In-App Purchases

In-app purchases, or IAP, grant optional extra features that the user may opt to buy. The team may occasionally decide to develop and release new add-on content that will be available to buy once testing of new content has been completed. Content offered may be purely cosmetic, offering no in-game benefits besides vanity and appearance.

On the 28th of December 2014, Dave confirmed that in-app purchases would be available within the tablet version[9]. This is a logical decision due to the team having used their own resources to fund the app. Prices of the add-ons are currently unknown, but they will be labelled here (and in their own article as new content is released in the future.

It is very possible that revenue earned through app-related purchases will be put back into the game -- whether computer, tablet, or both isn't currently known -- over time.

Technical Information

The app will be supported on iPhones (iPhone 5 and newer) and iPads ( iPad Air, iPad Mini 2, and more recent models)[10].
