Telltale Games has officially unveiled its game based on DC comics series Fables, titled The Wolf Among Us. Revealing to IGN
, The Wolf Among Us takes place prior to the comics and lets players take on the role of Bigby Wolf (The Big Bad Wolf), who has been exiled to New York City. The game will follow Bigby as he tries to contain his fairy tale characters from being detected in our world, including Mr. Toad and the Three Little Pigs.
“Developing The Wolf Among Us based on the Fables universe has allowed our studio to build upon all of the hallmarks of what makes our episodic series so engaging for players,” said Telltale CEO Dan Connors. “Through an evolution of our approach to choice and consequence, we can further explore the complexity of each and every iconic character in a universe rich with untold history from the darkest sides of the storybooks.”
Previously Telltale revealed that the studio would be working on a Fables-inspired game two years ago, however nothing eventually came out of it even after setting a release date the year after the announcement.
The Wolf Among Us will be available on Xbox 360, PC, Mac and PlayStation 3 with a release date sometime this year.
