The Wolf Among Us Turns Up The Noir In New “Smoke & Mirrors” Episode

Well, hello, giant cricket bat.

Well, hello, giant cricket bat.

Episodic noir-thriller adventure game, The Wolf Among Us, gets its second episode next week with “Smoke & Mirrors.”

Bigby Wolf is hell-bent on solving the murders revealed in Episode One, and will stop at nothing to get at the truth.

The Wolf Among Us is based on award-winning comic series, Fables, by Bill Willingham and published by Vertigo/DC Comics. The game is published by Telltale Games, the same folks who knocked it out of the park with the video game adaptation of The Walking Dead last year.

The adventure game is a hot property lately, and Telltale is at the forefront.

The first episode of The Wolf Among Us was a tour-de-force of gritty story telling, filled with a unique take on fairy tales and the characters you grew up with, like the three little pigs and Red Riding Hood. The second will most likely be the same, though maybe with some extra heat on the Sheriff, as you can see in the trailer below.

This second episode will be available on Mac, iOS, PC, and both Xbox Live and PlayStation Network for $4.99, or as part of the season pass, which goes for $24.99.

Look for “Smoke & Mirrors” to launch next week across all platforms.
