As a follow-up to The Walking Dead, Telltale Games has selected The Wolf Among Us as its next project an adaptation of another beloved graphic novel series. And considering The Walking Dead was such a big success, anticipation for The Wolf Among Us is higher than it might be otherwise.
With that in mind, we have some The Wolf Among Us news to share with regards to the first episode’s release date, which is sooner than most realize. No more screenshots or trailers, it’s almost time to experience the exploits of Bigby Wolf for yourself.
Although we don’t have a firm release date for The Wolf Among Us‘ first episode — titled ‘Faith’ — we do know it will release this month. We should be hearing an official release date soon, though; this according to the Twitter account of Telltale Games‘ Job Stauffer.
In addition to a release date tease, Telltale also revealed that those who pre-order The Wolf Among Us through Steam or Telltale’s website will get a 10% discount off the entire 5-episode run. So, instead of paying $24.99 ,pre-order holders will pay $22.49.
Additionally, those who pre-order the Mac or PC version of The Wolf Among Us will get a DVD of the entire season once it’s finished. Sorry PS3 and Xbox 360 owners, but nothing has been announced for those platforms yet.
In The Wolf Among Us, players enter the world of Bill Willingham’s Fables as seen through the eyes of Bigby Wolf. But, it’s important to note that fans of Willingham’s graphic novels will not be retreading old storylines, as The Wolf Among Us serves as a prequel to Fables.
Wolf, for those that might not be familiar with the Fables universe, is the sheriff of Fabletown, and something of a Private Eye. He’s typically at the center of a lot of the main storylines. To that end, it’s safe to presume a lot of the gameplay will consist of Bigby questioning Fabletown residents and trying to solve one, or several, mysteries.
Although The Wolf Among Us and The Walking Dead Season 2 are coming from the same developer, early word on the Fables adaptation makes it sound markedly different in approach. We’ve yet to get any hands-on time with the game, but that should change some time this month.
Will you pre-order The Wolf Among Us? Has the success of The Walking Dead influenced your opinion of this game?
The Wolf Among Us‘ first episode is slated to hit some time in October for the PC, Mac, PS3, and Xbox 360.
