The player must survive as a dispersal gray wolf in Yellowstone National Park. To do so they must hunt elk, hares, chase off coyote, follow scent trails, and feed off elk carcasses. They must also avoid dangers from grizzly bears and the elk themselves. The player has the option to find a mate, who will follow and aid the them throughout the rest of the game. With their mates players can search for a den to raise pups. However, after finding a densite the player must scent mark the area around the den and keep the pups safe.
Players are free to choose the gender, fur coloration, stats, and name of their wolf.
