Telltale Brings Dark, Gritty The Wolf Among Us To The App Store
Telltale has a brand new "choice-and-consequence" game available in the App Store. Building on the success of Walking Dead: The Game, developer Telltale has launched The Wolf Among Us, a similar title (sans zombies) for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Borrowing the same episodic structure, The Wolf Among Us can be downloaded for $4.99, and this includes the first episode of the app, "Faith." There are a further four episodes in the cards, "Smoke and Mirrors," "A Crooked Mile," "In Sheep's Clothing," and "Cry Wolf," and these will be available to purchase in-app at a later date, presumably for $4.99 each. But what can iDevice users expect from Telltale's new zombie-less app? Here's how the developer introduces The Wolf Among Us, over in the application's release notes:
As Bigby Wolf - THE big bad wolf - you will discover that a brutal, bloody murder is just a taste of things to come in a game series where your every decision can have enormous consequences. An evolution of Telltale's ground-breaking choice and consequence game mechanics will ensure the player learns that even as Bigby Wolf, Sheriff of Fabletown, life in the big bad city is bloody, terrifying and dangerous.Based on the award-winning "Fables" comic book series, The Wolf Among Us promises to offer gamers a "gritty, violent, and mature thriller."

Though each episode will be available to purchase individually in-app, Telltale is also offering users a 25 percent discount when a season pass is purchased for The Wolf Among Us. This means episodes two, three, four, and five will collectively cost $14.99, rather than $19.96. If you're a fan of Walking Dead: The Game, however, worry not. Because Telltale has also confirmed that a second season will be reaching our iDevices in the near future, and will feature two returning characters, rather than one. We'll keep you updated with further information as we receive it. In the meantime, The Wolf Among Us can be downloaded for $4.99, and is optimized for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
