The Wolf Among Us, Telltale Games’ anticipated follow-up to last year’s hit The Walking Dead, will begin rolling out its episodic installments on Friday, October 11, with the release of the first episode, Faith, for download on both the Xbox 360 and PC.
The latter version will be available via Steam, Telltale’s own site, and several other digital distributors. A North American PlayStation 3 release will follow on Tuesday, October 15. All three versions of the episode will cost $4.99, along with a Season Pass bundle for all five episodes at a discount.
Based on the popular DC comic book series Fables, The Wolf Among Us has players assume the role of New York sheriff Bigby Wolf, also known as the Big Bad Wolf from classic fairy tales. It’s up to Bigby to keep order in a hidden community where various creatures and characters from classic folk tales hide.
Telltale has put together a nifty new promotional trailer showcasing the game’s characters and unique cel-shaded art style, which can be viewed below.
We will have a review for Faith up soon. In the meantime, we will keep you updated on further news regarding The Wolf Among Us as it develops.
