The Wolf Among Us Released For Xbox One, PS4 And Vita Via Digital And Retail Editions; Relive The Critically Acclaimed Adventure Today
In case you missed it the first time around, Telltale Games has released its critically acclaimed series The Wolf Among Us onto Xbox One, PS4 and the PS Vita today, available for download and physical copy. A retail edition is also available for the Xbox 360 and PS3 today as well. The five part game, set in the universe of DC Vertigo's Fables, was originally released for PC and mobile platforms earlier this year.
The game takes place before the events of Fables, a modern reimagining of the classic Grimm fairy tales. The long running series was written by Bill Willingham and is ending its run with its 150th issue in 2015. The Wolf Among Us follows Bigby Wolf, the former Big Bad Wolf and now sheriff of Fabletown as he hunts down a murderer living in Fabletown, the congregation of exiled fairy tale characters living in plain sight in Manhattan.
"We are so proud to be a part of the rich tapestry of the Fables universe, bringing that world's darker takes on familiar fairytale characters to an interactive medium," said Kevin Bruner, President and Co-Founder at Telltale Games. "In bringing The Wolf Among Us to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One formats, as well as the recent Android release, more players than ever can now experience being Sheriff Bigby Wolf and take the fate of Fabletown into their own hands."
The game retails for about $30 at all major distributors and is also available via each platform's online store. If you don't want to commit to purchasing the full story, the first episode is currently free on Android. But let me assure you, with a 1-2 combo like Telltale and Fables, you're going to be hooked for the whole adventure.
The European version will be available for sale and download on November 7.
