The Episode 3 Slide

posted by HarjKS on - Viewed by 2.4K users

Has anyone noticed that the image on the slide for 'Episode 3' of the Wolf Among Us has changed? It's now changed to Bigby chasing down a car (presumably Crane's) - What do you guys think of this image? Also does this suggest further that the games storyline had to take some drastic changes?

  • Yeah, it wasn't hard to notice, but that's clear evidence that story has been rewritten, but not completely. I presume that's why it took so long to release second episode. I wish I knew what exactly has been changed.

    • But in this case, shouldn't we assume Ep 3,4 and 5 had to be rewritten to some extent as well? Regardless, i hope they tell us exactly what changed after S1 is over.

      • I think we should, because for instance Bigby was supposed to transform into a werewolf in 2nd episode and as you can see transformation will occur in 3rd (or maybe later, "Next time on..." might work different than in TWD). Everything has been changed in some degree, but game is still awesome, at least in my opinion, and there's nothing to complain about yet.

        • I agree. About the whole preview thing, at first i thought TT would've kept teasing us with Bigby's supposed transformation til episode 5. But the achievements for ep 3, namely "Huff&Puff" and "Severe Case of Lycanthropy" lead me to believe otherwise. I also think ep 2 was great! Sure, people may have had bigger expectations(the 4 month delay is definitely a big factor in this) but i was ok with it. We still got 3 episodes ahead of us and i'm really looking forward to them!

      • Technically, Telltale can rewrite episode 2 and still match it up to episode 3 as long as episode 2 ended in roughly the same spot. In this case, seems 2 and 3 got almost total rewrites, but since episode 4's and 5's slides didn't change, episode 3 likely ended in the same spot it did originally. Possibly episodes 4 and 5 got rewritten to an extent, too. Depends how much Brannigan was to play into the later episodes. Seems her part was largely in 2 and 3 so 4 and 5 didn't need a rewrite to remove her.

        All Telltale did was keep the destination but change the journey in each episode. You can experiment with that by telling people to all write a story with the exact same ending. How they get to that ending is up to them to puzzle out. No one will come up with the same story but should have the same ending (if they followed instructions). It's the same thing if you tell people to drive to a location and everyone has the same starting point. Chances are, not everyone will take the same route ... as long as multiple routes are available.

  • Well, now I wonder why this transformation occurs and also why Mr. Toad is a witness of this... Maybe it's just me, but his voice sounds a bit evil, dark and ironically in a preview. And I also can't wait to play the rest of the game! I can say I'm impatient about it.

  • Can bigby control himself in the werewolf form?

    • Absolutely, he also can change between his werewolf and wolf form at will. While also retaining his strength. I know what you mean though, TT is making it look like he has no control over his transformation.

      • Maybe it will be changed. Remember the fact that Bigby has been downgraded in particular degree. I bet you noticed he wasn't able to use to power of his sense of smell in the 1st episode when blood trails can be found.

        • Sure he did. he sniffed it to determine how long the blood was there

          • Im wondering why he only roars instead of talking in the preview

          • Aw, I bet you know what I meant. He could follow the smell of those trails to track down the killer or something like that. Anyway, I had a bit greater expectations to this.

            • Indeed, his nose has been downgraded big time! First off, Bigby couldn't have possibly been tricked into thinking Snow was dead. Since he himself stated he can block anybody's scent, except for hers.

              • Maybe he's the killer and knew it wasn't her in the first place

                • I'm sorry but that's not possible. I do believe however that Telltale wanted the players to question Bigby's actions at some point.... But as far as him being the killer? No. If i were to bet, i'd say someone is trying to frame him.

                • I don't consider it one of proofs of his guilt. It's just... you know, game would be extremely easy when Bigby had all those powers working in a proper way. His abilities have been changed just for the game cause, to make it harder and more complex. Of course, some crime stories shows that detective or person who seems to be investigating particular case is a culprit, but I think that Telltale Games wants us to have at least one completely innocent character and this is Bigby. If I had to point character who might be guilty and also helping in the investigation, it would be Snow rather. But only time will tell. 3rd episode will tell us if Bigby can control himself in a werewolf form. If he can't... well, you'll probably be right.

  • Perhaps TTG decided to reduce Branigann's (I'm sure that's written wrong) appearences.
