The Wolf Among Us is a five episode series from the creators of the 2012 Game of the Year: The Walking Dead. Based on Fables (DC Comics/Vertigo), an award-winning comic book series, it is an often violent, mature and hard-boiled thriller where the characters and creatures of myth, lore and legend are real and exist in our world.
Players take on the role of Bigby Wolf (THE big bad wolf in human form) who, as the Sheriff of Fabletown must stop the evil characters from popular fairytales, legends and folklore who have escaped into the human world. Can he fight his primal urges and retain control of his inner beast and protect the very people he used to hunt?
The game’s format is very similar to that of The Walking Dead,with your choices playing a key role in the outcome of the game. However, don’t let the fairytale theme fool you, THIS ISN’T FOR KIDS, it is gritty and dark!
The series recently launched on PC, XBLA and PSN for $4.99 for the first episode or a full season pass which gets you all 5 episodes as they are released for a reduced price. If The Walking Dead is any indication, we can expect the iOS release to follow a similar pricing pattern.
I’m really looking forward to sinking my teeth into this one when it arrives in the Fall.
You can expect more details as we get them, but for now you can enjoy the trailer below.
