Sneak peek at The Wolf Among Us Episode 2: 'Smoke & Mirrors'

posted by puzzlebox on - last edited - Viewed by 49.3K users

With this week's launch of The Wolf Among Us on iOS, everyone here at the office has been incredibly excited by the response to our series from fans new and old alike. We know many of you are anxious to see where Bigby's story goes next, and the dev team is hard at work finalizing our live development process on the upcoming episode, Smoke & Mirrors. At Telltale, we always aim to deliver quality content across the season at a pace that will keep you glued to your screen and talking about 'your story' as the season progresses. With the second chapter now close to completion, we wanted to share two new screens from the episode to give you a sneak peek at what will be happening next in Fabletown...

First up is a brand-new reveal of a character that FABLES fans will definitely recognize – the one and only 'Jack' of beanstalk fame. A sharp-tongued rogue who's been a staple character in the FABLES series since issue one, Jack has even been honored with his very own spinoff comic series, Jack of FABLES.

We also have a peek at the seedy underground club exclusively for Fables, known as the 'Pudding & Pie.' Doesn't look like the gentleman in the chair is particularly happy to see Bigby and his 'friend,' but it's probably safe to say that Bigby isn't very happy either...

We wanted to thank everyone for playing the first chapter in The Wolf Among Us, and ask for your patience as the team works very hard this month to finalize what is shaping up to be another episode full of surprises. We're anticipating another update on its ETA for release very soon after the holidays, and we couldn't be more excited to continue this series with all of you.

Stay tuned for more updates as they happen, and if you're also a fan of The Walking Dead, definitely check back for news on the Season Two premiere, set to arrive later THIS MONTH on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, Mac, and iOS!

  • i was expecting a release date at least .. but the great news r 2 screenshots ?? c'moon .. im really disappointed :/

  • uhh, i think i'll be back around this time next year.

  • Why can't we all be happy there releasing things...

    • Because they aren't releasing the thing.

    • People love the game, but it's not unreasonable to expect more information on release dates. Telltale makes engrossing, brilliant games that are like interactive TV shows: if you bought a season pass to a show on iTunes and had to wait three months to watch the next episode, would you be happy? It disrupts the narrative and the enjoyment of playing.

    • You think releasing NOTHING = releasing things... :|

    • Look they understand that 3 months it too big, and it is. But being sad or mad at TTG isn't going to change anything. They are probably fixing bugs and frame rate issues. And they releasing two screenshots that's not nothing Let's just hope the gaps don't get bigger and shrink to 2 months.

      • Do they understand though? TTG almost certainly took people off TWAU in order to get TWD polished and out in time for Christmas, at the cost of delaying episode 2 of TWAU. If there's no reaction from the community, then TTG will believe that they can take on more projects and increase the gaps between episodes without any backlash. When a game can go through two sales before the 2nd episode is even released, is there really very much to be gained from buying the game at launch?

        And no-one here paid for screenshots, so in the context of the season pass, that is nothing.

  • Well, I hope Telltale will at least realize they have to improve their PR skills. Can't see any satisfied customer after this update...

  • This is disappointing. I wish Telltale would communicate things better. I'm sure this wasn't planned and there is good reason for the delay, but waiting 7 weeks just to tell us it's going to be nearly 3 months, maybe more, between episodes is a bit much. Is the whole season going to be this way? I don't want to play it episodically as they release if it is. I'd like to know this so I can plan my playing accordingly. I don't want the product rushed. If it takes more time to make it great, so be it. I just want to know.

    I already own the thing. I just want to maximize my enjoyment of it.

  • At least their taking there time!

    As I feared. Telltale can't run two games simultaneously.

  • Disappointed that you charged for the entire series up front and then did not hold to TWDs release schedule. I would not have purchased immediately if I had known that there would not be a new episode each month.

  • And this is why I don't buy season passes.

    AFTER the holidays? You tell us a new episode will be out every four-six weeks and then you tell us it won't be released till AFTER the holidays?

    Really, Telltale?

    I say this with all due respect: you really need to work on your PR and your marketing.
