The Wolf Among Us FAQ (Last Update on November 15, 2014)

All information in this FAQ is compiled by community moderators Jennifer and Vainamoinen. We check our facts thoroughly and have a lot of Telltale experience on our backs, but this is not an 'official' source, we're just volunteers!

(1) What is The Wolf Among Us?
It is an episodic game based on Bill Willingham's Fables comics, set in Fabletown, a hidden refuge for Fables in New York City. It is a prequel, set before the first issue, and is said by Mr. Willingham to be in canon with the comics. The player character will be the sheriff Bigby Wolf, and it will include Fables favorites like Snow White and Colin, one of the three little pigs. It also features original Fables created by Telltale for this game.

(2) What kind of game is it?
It is a game about choices, similar to The Walking Dead, with action sequences. The choices in this game relate to Bigby's wolf side, and how he treats the people he meets and those he has to protect. Like The Walking Dead, it consists of choice based gameplay. However, there is more freedom in the choices this time. You are able to choose where to go in some instances, and the events will happen in real time. So, the other event will still play out regardless of whether or not you are there. Also, the action is slightly more directly controlled this time. Bigby gets into brawls, and since he is a Fable, the fights are more over the top than they could be with someone like Lee from The Walking Dead.

(3) Is Bill Willingham involved with the game?
Bill Willingham reached a deal with Telltale to help with the general direction of the story of the game, and to make sure the characters and story stay true to the greater Fables universe.

(4) On which platforms is TWAU available?
The episodes are available for PC and Mac through the Telltale Store, Steam and other digital platforms, on the PlayStation3 through PSN, on Xbox360 through XBLA, and on iOS.

(6) How much does it cost?
Like The Walking Dead, the episodes cost $5 each. A season pass option comprising all five episodes is available for $25. The price might vary per platform. On some platforms (like the PC), you can't buy the episodes individually and will have to buy the entire season at once.

(7) How many episodes are there?
There are five episodes. The episode titles are Faith, Smoke & Mirrors, A Crooked Mile, In Sheep's Clothing, and Cry Wolf.

(8) Which languages are available for The Wolf Among Us?
Only English is available at the moment. There is no word on what languages The Wolf Among Us will be translated to or when they will be available, but historically Telltale has released their translations towards the end of the season.

(9) Will there be a bonus/free collector's DVD version available from the Telltale store?
YES! Yes, after three years (the last one before this was Back to the Future: The Game in 2011), Telltale store PC/Mac Season customers will finally receive a free bonus game DVD just for shipping costs.

(10) If I buy the game from someplace other than the Telltale store will I still get the collector's DVD?
No. The collector's DVD is only available for PC and Mac customers who order from the Telltale store (or from an outlet that has a code that redeems on the Telltale Store).

(11) What is on the collector's DVD from the Telltale store?
This time around there aren't any extras included, but you do get an exclusive cover that is digitally signed by Adam Harrington, the voice of Bigby Wolf.

(12) Will there be a season two or a DLC episode, like with 400 Days in The Walking Dead: Season One?
Neither a second season nor a DLC episode has been announced. Note that 400 Days was Telltale's first time creating downloadable content for a season that was separate from the regular season, so it's unknown if this will be repeated for Telltale's other seasons. Both are certainly a possibility.
