Learn to Hunt

As a new arrival here in the Lamar Valley of Yellowstone, you must learn how to hunt on Amethyst Mountain – mostly elk, but also there are also mule deer, moose, bison, and snowshoe hares. You'll have to become a good hunter before you can persuade another wolf to become your mate!

Find a Mate

Winter is coming to Amethyst Mountain, so it's time to start looking for a mate. Now that you are a good hunter, you'll find other dispersal wolves who also left their family pack in search of a mate. As in real life, you will want to travel and hunt together for a time before deciding whether or not to start a pack together.

Establish Territory

A new home to raise a new pack! There isn't enough space in Amethyst Mountain for another wolf pack, so you and your mate have moved to Slough Creek. With your pups coming soon, you first need to establish a territory to help keep your little pack safe. Much of this area is as yet unclaimed by other packs, so explore, hunt, mark, howl, and fight to claim your turf.

Find a Den

Now that you have explored Slough Creek and established your pack's territory, it is time to choose a good den site to have your first litter of pups. There's no need to dig a new den for yourself, as there are plenty of abandoned burrows made by coyotes, foxes, badgers, and ground squirrels that just need to be expanded for your needs. Look for gaps under large boulders or cavities underneath old tree roots. Your den will keep your little pups safe as they grow.

Raise Pups

Your pups have arrived! They emerge from the den at about six weeks, weaned and eating regurgitated meals. Hunt and eat extra to fill up your growing pups! Soon they will also eat meat from your kills.

Protect your young from dangerous predators who are looking for an easy meal or to eliminate future competition.

Socialize and play with your pups to build pack affinity.

Journey to a Summer Home

Your pups have outgrown the den, so it's time to move to a summer home closer to the elk herds that have migrated up Slough Creek's slopes.

Traveling with pups can be perilous. Predators are lurking. There may be swift waters to cross. Pups do their best to keep up as you lead them to summer rendezvous site. Can you keep them safe?

Loaf at Rendezvous Site

Continue to raise your pups at your summer rendezvous site. Keep them well fed so they continue to grow big and strong.

But life is not only about food. Relax in the sun. Loaf around and play with your pups. Enjoy yourself. It's summertime in Yellowstone, and you and your family are living the life of wild wolves!

If you like, you can keep playing at the rendezvous site, in endless summer mode, while you await the rest of the Saga -- an upcoming expansion (free to anyone who owns the game) where you will be able to live the entire life of your wolf through all the seasons, year after year, on all the maps (except for Lost River Classic).

Still to Come!

The WolfQuest Saga

Soon 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?

More maps and customizations will also be released as DLC in the future.
