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

posted by puzzlebox Telltale Staff on - last edited - Viewed by 71.8K 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 love you guys and all but at least you can do is tell is a more accurate time table for your release episodes. Or at least tell your fans if your are writing it as you go or what? This way we can live without an episode and yet satisfied that our new beloved series hasn't been lost or delayed in a blackhole.

  • So, Telltale guys,

    if you promise, there will be all 4 to 6 weeks a new episode, and now you tell us after seven weeks in the last sentence of a long post we will have to wait at least five more weeks... well that's rude. Who cares for two screenshots and an update about an update that will be in four weeks?

    This post should really be called 'Episode 2 is delayed because of a lot of work in WD2, ETA is january 2014'...

    Damn... treat your custumers better and more honest!

    You guys are so ungrateful

    • If this were a free-to-play game, I would agree that we're all being ungrateful little sods. But given that most have purchased a season pass and have heard nothing from Telltale about a release date for the second episode, I would wholly refute the idea that we're ungrateful. Those of us who have dropped money for a season pass are just frustrated at the lack of a release date.

    • Not all of us have the patience of Jesus, Kenny. If they said to wait another week or two, less of us would be complaining. But now we have to wait until late December or early January (most likely). This is bad business, man.

    • Rather than critiquing others, what were you given that you feel grateful for?

  • I would have to say I agree with Kenny.

  • Crap! all this waiting for TWAU is making me don´t want to play it anymore, What concerns me is this telltale guys will do the same release delays for the walking dead season 2, in the first season they had delays too, maybe they can´t handle big projects ... hire more programmers!

  • Another month, huh? I'll come back then.

  • The fact that you cannot inform your customers of a release date is enough to make me no longer purchase your products. And to think, I was looking forward to this too.

    • It's not that telltale doesn't want to give us the release date (well maybe they kind of do) but it also could be because TTG doesn't give release dates sometimes only days before it comes out. I love that it gives you a little surprise. I personally wouldn't recommend telltale games if you don't have some what of a good patience at the moment (they don't have the biggest of a team since they're trying to do 2 games and it's difficult for there size) and I wouldn't recommend it if you can expect not to have the a lot revealed before it comes out. I won't be getting into twau until after episode 5 because then I can play all of it in a week. I don't have to play all of it in like half a year ( not hating on telltale I'm just giving a personal suggestion)

      • Nope. Working on 4 titles now.

          No, they're still working on TWO.

          Announcing titles does not mean "working on them". If you had watched the interviews, you'd know - Kevin and Dan practically answer every TotB and GoT question with "we are not that far yet"... "we only just got this license"... "more to come"...

  • ''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.''

    And now you guys are working on four titles..... That explains the delay. Just concentrate on this and TWD for now okay? Remember quality > quantity. Please don't become another cheap easy cash grabber like most devs have.

    • Yeah I also feel the same that TellTale are going the way of pushing as many games out the door as they can. Which is surely going against them by the looks of TWAU.

      I would of hoped they would have pushed more on tech expanding what can happen in a story so characters that were destined to die may have a chance of surviving at the cost of another just to balance things. Like in TWD but not as watered down. Letting your actions have a huge impact on the world not just letting one or two characters decide if they like you or not.

      I think pushing out this many games screams stupid. They struggled with The Walking Dead. The company still trips over its feet and lacks communication with sellers. Like Steam.

      I still haven't forgotten about the two delays of Jurassic Park. I still wonder why I bought that game.

      But in the end TellTale had plenty of time to get this Episode out the door with great quality. I think at this point it is safe to say some guy is counting the cash with a big grin and the team have decided to drag their feet because they are sitting on enough money.

      We didn't have to wait this long for a TWD episode. Lets remember the team were finding their feet with TWD so something they should've mastered by now or at least got the hang but they simply screwed up on.

  • Lol maybe the reason why Wolf Among Us part 2 is delayed is because they are spending too much time creating the strippers for the Pudding and Pie bar SMH. Also they could be too busy playing the PS4/Xbox One :D

    • I can excuse the stripper modeling. But only if they give us a whole ton of variety. Amazon strippers, midget strippers, busty strippers, flat strippers, skinny strippers, fat strippers, black, white, asian, latino, blonde, brunette, ginger, curly, straight, wavy, tattooed, pierced etc.
