Play as a werewolf in “Saint’s Row: The Third” or its polar opposite “The Sims 3”

A. Quinton — Jul. 26th 2012

Let’s step away from indie games for a minute and take a look at two A-list titles that are publishing werewolf-related expansions.

First up is The Sims 3 Supernatural, a limited edition expansion for the The Sims 3. It’s available for preorder for $40, and ships September 4th. From the game’s web site:

Enter the mysterious town of Moonlight Falls where strange things happen by the light of the moon. Create supernatural beings from menacing werewolves and cackling witches, to mischievous fairies and more intriguing vampires. Then stalk the night, use your wand to cast spells, claw the furniture and more. You can mix dozens of elixirs that can turn Sims into zombies or transform them into gold. Share your enchanted brews with any friends who have The Sims 3! Spooky surprises are in store for you in the world of The Sims 3 Supernatural!

GameZone has a write-up that describes the specifics of the changes your werewolf Sim will go through, although the screenshot above shows the bulk of what you can expect: hairy shoulders, claws, a caveman face, and ripped pants that will terrify your effete friend and the maid, but which will impress the dickens out of ladies in very shiny pantyhose.

Not into The Sims? You can also get your werewolf DLC via a game that lists the ability to “take on a Mexican wrestling gang in a satellite-targeted airstrike” as a selling point: Saint’s Row: The Third. The Horror Pack is available today, and offers mix-and-match Werewolf, Zombie, Slasher and Horror Mask components. The game looks like a sugar-addled 13-year-old boy’s escapist fantasy, but I actually kind of like the werewolf suit design.

The Horror Pack is available as DLC on the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live and OnLive for less than the price of an expensive fancy coffee.
