I said the same in one of my games yesterday. It seems cool they make a noise but I'm wondering if its actually coming from wolves somewhere or just a audio on repeat. I don't know if you could follow the audio to the wolves and think having just wolves howling all the time will get boring pretty quick. Sound amazing just don't want to hear them all the time.

Why Researchers Howl At Wolves—And Why Some Might Stop
Maybe they are like that IRL? Maybe different areas are better?
I've mainly been hunting the burnt forest and the plains so I guess that is the area for the wolves. Remember geese honks? Should be less frequent and more random. Anyone notice the howls sound quite strange also? Not the wolf howl I expected to hear. And yes I know the difference between a coyote yelp and a wolf howl.

Glad to know I am not the only one who was wondering if the wolf howl was too saturated among the other ambient sounds. If you listen closely, the wolves sound like an ambulance. It helps to reinforce pack solidarity and enables the opportunity for young pack members to learn information specific to the pack and how to survive.
As with any highly social animal, communication amongst wolves is particularly complex and involved and it is vital to keeping the family functioning together as one. In a wolf pack, order is regularly reinforced by displays of dominance and submission through a complex mix of vocal and physical communications.
Wolves employ a variety of non-vocal forms of communication to express and maintain their status, relying on their posture, facial expression, ear and tail positioning, and more to communicate their intention. Body language can also be accompanied and reinforced by vocalizations. This lower-ranking wolf shows submission by rolling over and showing his belly, the most vulnerable part of his body, to the dominant wolf.
The omega wolf, the lowest member in the pack hierarchy, displays its role physically by assuming a crouched position when approaching another wolf. A confident alpha male or female carries its tail high, as a visible sign of authority, signaling a leadership role in the pack structure. Tucked between the legs and under the body of a submissive wolf, the tail is a noticeable sign of non-aggression to other wolves.
Vocalizations, such as growls, barks, whines, yips and whimpers, are equally as important as the non-vocal language of wolves. When people think of wolves communicating, they most likely think of howling. But wolves have an extensive repertoire of sounds. Whines and whimpers indicate friendly interaction but can also express frustration or anxiety. Growls and snarls are threatening or defensive. Barking is rare, and is usually used as an alarm signal. Howls seem to be about togetherness, whether the wolves are gathering for a hunt, mourning a lost pack mate, or announcing territorial or mating intentions.
The adult wolves of the Sawtooth Pack knew when to end their howl, but young, enthusiastic pups often did not. Urge your governor to oppose this attack! Wolves utilize their own language, and recently scientists have learned that the howl of these enthralling animals changes over the course of seasons. Wolves have sophisticated social lives , which leads to a complex array of howls that signal different things. According to Yellowstone-based biologist Doug Smith, wolves howl more or less often according to the time of year and the rhythm of their reproductive cycles.
In the spring, the number of howls decreases as wolf pups are born. Instead of traveling together, the pack establishes dens and leaves its pups in their shelter.
Why do wolves howl? Wolves do not howl at the moon.
The pack members then split up, searching for sustenance. Each wolf howls to communicate with other pack mates, rather than with encroaching neighbors. Wolf species also have "howling dialects," according to a study from the University of Cambridge.
Different species have their own vocal fingerprints, using specific types of howls with varying regularity. For example, a timber wolf howl is low and flat, while a red wolf howl often features a high, looping vocal. Another study from suggests that when separated, wolves will howl out of loneliness or affection for other wolves.
The scientists conducting the study concluded that a wolf howls more or less depending on the strength of its relationship with the missing wolf. Wolf calls have not been completely demystified, nor have they lost their power to amaze.
In a way, we hear undercurrents of our own emotions in wolf song. And this complex connection with wolves is not limited to humans.
