Telltale Games Tips The Wolf Among Us Episode 2 For Next Week

It’s been almost four months since Telltale Games released the first episode of The Wolf Among Us. The wait is almost over, with news that the next episode will be arriving next week.

Episode two, entitled Smoke and Mirrors puts Bigby on the hunt for a killer that has struck too close to home. Mr. Toad, Beauty, Beast, Jack (of beanstalk fame), and more will enter the story.

Smoke and Mirrors is coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and iOS as a $4.99 standalone episode or as part of the season pass. PC and Mac users will have the episode unlocked as part of the season pass when it is available. You can read our review of the first episode to learn more.

  • Finally. I got the first episode free during the holiday sale and loved it so much that I bought the first trade issue of the comic. Definitely ready for episode 2.

  • It's been way to long since the first episode. I've been waiting patiently though. After playing the first episode I was hooked. Hope the second episode is on par quality wise as the first was.

  • About freaking time, I think they are going a bit of a disservice to their IP by taking on so many projects and releasing the episodes so far apart. While I'm pretty excited I mostly forgot this was even coming out.
  • I'm actually more excited for this than The Walking Dead.

  • I really dislike Telltale's episodic release schedule for their last few games. If I'm getting into a game like The Walking Dead, then I want to keep playing it and not stop for two months while I wait for the next episode to come out.

    This release schedule means I won't purchase their games until all the episodes come out and by then I can pick it up on Steam for about 1/3 of the original price.

  • Yes, finally! The first episode was awesome, can't wait for this second one. Also, how is the Fables comic? I've been thinking of reading it and the Walking Dead comics thanks to Telltale Games (and WD because of the show mostly).
  • It's about damn time. Four months is not a good period to have to wait for planned episodic content they ought to already have laid out. While it could be a good excuse to do a replay of the first one, that's a lengthy amount of time for the things you saw and did to go forgotten. I really hope they speed up the process after this. I don't think it should be any more than two months apart, max.

  • Speaking of release dates, this is what they had for The Walking Dead: 1 - 4/24/12 2 - 6/27/12 3 - 8/28/12 4 - 10/9/12 5 - 11/20/12 All five episodes out in little over half a year total. They had about the same pace for their five-part Back to the Future game, too. If they're stretching themselves so thin that it takes months between episodes, they're either going to lose people or more will just wait for all the episodes to be finished before buying anything.
  • I've only waited about 2 months, since I got the game about 2 months ago, but I'm still very happy the wait is almost over. I'm enjoying this more than I enjoyed TWD Season 1 already.

  • I wish I was excited for this game... Really I do. The Wolf Among Us Ep. 1 was the first Telltale game I ever bought, and I played the heck out of it! But man its been awhile without any news... I'm lacking the same sense of excitement I had when I started playing this series... Where I would have bought episode 2 without a second thought before I have to ask myself now if I even want to buy it now...I think what's more likely for me and for a lot of people is that I'll either wait for the whole series to release before buying any,or just lose interest and not buy the game at all... Sorry TT
  • Getting pumped now.

  • Let's do this!

  • Man its about freakin time! After the way episode 1 ended (And how they charged me before making it free to download) I've been dying to play episode 2, got the season pass and everything!

  • took them long enough

  • Some people just can't wait to get the whole picture. By the time I get this game, it will be the whole set just like the Walking Dead. Enjoy your new ep suckers!! I won't be playing fool to Tell Tales bitesized approach to gaming. Picked up the whole Walking Dead Season 1 and 400 days for less than 5 bucks on the PSN.
  • Yeah, I'll wait till the full game is out and it hits a steam sale. Waiting 4 months for a new ep is unacceptable and I refuse to support this kind of behavior by paying full-price for it. This game pretty much influenced my attitude towards TWD 2 as well.
  • Finally!!! I'm ready!!!

  • I am so excited!!! At the same time though, Telltale has to figure their stuff out because 3+ months for a second episode is just ridiculous.

  • I can't wait. The ending to the first episode gave me goosebumps. I'm hooked. Telltales has came up with yet another amazing story for us.
