Telltale Games' The Wolf Among Us will launch this week on Xbox 360, PC, and Mac, the developer has confirmed.

The PlayStation 3 version will follow "a few days" after the other versions launch on Friday October 11, according to Telltale.

The Wolf Among Us is an episodic five-part adventure based on the Fables comic series by Bill Willingham and published by DC. The first episode will be titled Faith, with the whole series taking place before the first issue of the comic.

Those who currently preorder the PC version of the game in North America through the Telltale Games website will be able to receive a Collector's Edition DVD of the game for the cost of shipping and handling.

Telltale says the game is being developed by the same team who worked on last year's critically-acclaimed adaptation of The Walking Dead.

TOO. MANY. GOOD. GAMES.  We're so fucking spoiled this year!  GTA5, Beyond, The Wolf, AC4.  It's a good time to be a gamer.

The premise and art style is very appealing, but I thought it'd be released later on. Gamespot hasn't bothered to change its "Release: TBA 2014 (US)" info next to the game.

I loved Walking Dead, but was ultimately disappointed by the lack of consequences. Just like ME3.

Looks good, but I'll wait until I've read some of the Fables comics. I've heard many great things.

Whatever...where's my TWD season 2?!? I'm calm...I'm calm...

But seriously, I've never heard of the comics, probably because I'm not much of a DC fan...what's it about?

Game will be great and I'll play it for sure  but I don't like episodic stuff .

@tomservo51 walking dead was full of consequences...i think you were dissapointed that the consequences didn't alter as much as you'd like based on your decisions.

@Fandango_Letho Every studio has hits and misses. I'm looking foward to how this will be.

@CommanderShiro This actually takes place before the events of the comics--from what I've heard, a prequel so to speak--so you can essentially play this even if you haven't started reading the series (as I haven't either) and it won't spoil anything for you. It basically just fleshes out the characters for you. 

I plan to play it and start reading the comics. :)

@Cloud_imperium Me neither, I want it all at once. I want to get from start to finish in my own pace, not sitting around waiting for the next part. I'll wait until all the episodes are out, just like many others here will.

Episode 1: Faith 
Episode 2: Smoke and Mirrors 
Episode 3: A Crooked Mile 
Episode 4: In Sheep's Clothing 
Episode 5: Cry Wolf

@Frimmel I might give it a try...and normally the stuff that others use for inspiration turns out to be better than what they make with it in mind, right?

@Korvus85 @Frimmel The Fairy Tale Characters being real and in the real world is about it for concurrence (without knowing particular story points.) If you're liking that show you're probably pretty safe with a purchase of the first Fables trade.

@Frimmel Basically all the characters from the brother Grimm stories got chased away from the magical world by a curse and now they live in the real world in a city they can't leave but lost their memories until someone comes along and breaks the curse so that they can go back to their world. From what you said about Fables, sounds like a lot comes from it...

@Korvus85 @Frimmel I don't watch it/didn't start watching it because it seemed like a rip off of Fables. :-)

@Frimmel I'm sure it did. Are you familiar with the show?

@Korvus85 @Frimmel Which likely took its cues from Fables. Fables has been going strong long before Once Upon a Time and Grimm.

@Frimmel Ah, I see...thanks! That sounds interesting, although with that description the first thing that comes to mind is ABC's Once Upon a Time...

@Korvus85 @Darth_Kane 

 A bit more elaborately. The Fables (Snow White, King Cole, Prince Charming, Bigby {The Big Bad Wolf} of this story and many others) have been chased out of their magical realms by The Adversary. They have taken refuge in The Mundy (our human world.) They have adventures and so on. It is a Vertigo title so DC but not Batman/Superman DC. Great reading. Your local comic shop probably has several trade collections available.
