Wondering what the monster is in The Quarry? We've got you covered.

From the developers of Until Dawn and The Dark Pictures Anthology titles, The Quarry is Supermassive Games' latest interactive drama horror set in upstate New York. For those running through the new title's campaign for the first time, here's a breakdown of what the monster is in The Quarry.

Spoiler warning for the plot details ahead, of course.

What is the Monster in The Quarry?

Although players will receive hints about what the main supernatural threats in the game are from the get-go, the first look at what they are comes in Chapter 3 when one attacks Nick.

Right away, players will notice that the creature's key features include having dark red skin, long limbs, sharp teeth and the urge to growl. Ultimately, it realized that these creatures are humans that have been transformed into werewolves.

The Quarry pretty much follows the traditional werewolf mythology. These humans can transform into them during a full moon and seek to devour the living. Additionally, they can turn other humans into werewolves by spreading the infection via bites.

In confrontations, players will notice that they have extreme strength, as well as impeccable night vision and sharp claws.

Fortunately, not all is lost when facing them head-on, as the werewolves do suffer from an irrational fear of water, as well as can be slain with objects made of silver.

Perhaps the only thing that strays away from the common idea of the typical werewolf is that the monsters in this game lack the wolf-like body hair.


The Quarry is available now on PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Windows PC (via Steam).
