PSN Release Date for Telltale Games’ “The Wolf Among Us”

The people behind the highly lauded adventure game The Walking Dead are set to release the first episode of their latest project, The Wolf Among Us, on October 15 for PlayStation Network (Mac, PC, and Xbox Live players got a head start, as the game came out on October 11 for them).

Canon compliant with the Fables comic series by Bill Willingham, the game follows Sheriff Bigby Wolf (geddit? He’s the Big Bad Wolf! Haaa) in his quest to keep fairy tale characters from killing one another and from being discovered by non-fairy tale humans. All the while, he struggles to keep his inner wolf tamed. Due to the game’s choice-and-consequence based system, the player will be able to decide which side – good, or bad – Bigby will fall on.

The first episode, “Faith,” has for the most part been positively received. Players are already itching for the next installment of the story, which should be released next month.

Check out the trailer below, which has cameos from the Magic Mirror, The Huntsman, Snow White, and an adorable flying monkey:
