The only changes I've seen was additions to those days.
Last night's release gave a history of Royce where he killed the previous Lycan leader's pup in order to get an easy victory only for the pack to find out and give him a life sentenced locked up where he would die and become a vengeful werewolf spectre. I played last night's release and they did not have a quest button for him.
According to some websites, anyone can assume the form of a werewolf during the Full Moon and anyone can assume the form of a Lycan at any time. We already have seen that this game has made use of the bipedal werewolves and not the quadrupedal werewolves like the one seen in "An American Werewolf in London" and certain werewolves in the "Goosebumps" franchise. If they do feature the quadrupedal version of the werewolves, how would this appearance be explained?
The cutscene script from AQ3D described a Wolftaur variant called the Lychimera to be a hybrid of a werewolf, a Lycan, and a wolf claiming that it has the head of a wolf, the torso and arms of a Lycan, and the second torso and legs of a werewolf (most likely the quadrupedal version). Who knows what AQW's version of the Lychimera would be like if it comes out! For all we know, someone probably spliced the DNA samples of them to create the Lychimera.
