Telltale Games’ episodic “choice and consequence” games The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us have been playing havoc with the heartstrings of gamers everywhere over the last couple of years, and will continue to do so for the rest of the summer before the studio’s newest project, Tales From the Borderlands, lands later this year.
The Wolf Among Us has weaved a tangled web of lies and corruption as Bigby Wolf, sheriff of Fabletown in New York City, tries to bite and claw his way to the truth in the wake of two brutal murders. Meanwhile, The Walking Dead‘s Clementine continues her fight for survival in a zombie-ridden post-civilization world where the living can be even more dangerous than the dead.
The two major criticisms that Telltale has drawn amid the mountains of praise have been the performance issues encountered on the console versions of the games, and the often lengthy wait between episodes. Regarding the latter complaint, we have a double dose of good news as Telltale Games has released some new screenshots from the season finale of The Wolf Among Us, ‘Cry Wolf’ – including the episode title screen shown above – and revealed that The Walking Dead Season 2, Episode 4 will most likely release this month.
No official release dates have yet been set for the next episode of The Wolf Among Us and The Walking Dead, but usually the dates are only announced around one week ahead of time. Telltale Games’ director of PR, Job J. Stauffer, was able to offer a timeframe for the next episode of The Walking Dead, thanking fans on Twitter for their patience and stating that more information will become available within the next few weeks.
Telltale usually releases the first screenshots from an episode very shortly before its release, which means that The Wolf Among Us may actually have overtaken The Walking Dead. Either way, it’s now looking quite likely that we’ll get both ‘Cry Wolf’ and the next episode of The Walking Dead at around the same time. Hold on to your emotions.
We’ll keep you updated on the release schedule for The Wolf Among Us and The Walking Dead as more details become available.
