With the launch of Telltale’s wonderful Fables-inspired game The Wolf Among Us on iOS this week, it was only a matter of time until they gave those of us who had already played through it (multiple times) a preview of episode 2, “Smoke & Mirrors.” Today, Telltale gave us a taste of that sweet, sweet Fables nectar in the form of a pair of screenshots from the next chapter of the episodic adventure game, set to release in 2014. First up, a familiar face that Fables fans will definitely recognize – Jack! You know, the dude who climbed the beanstalk? Killed a giant? That Jack. Well, he’s back and chances are he’s going to be just as sleazy as you remember from the comics.
The second screenshot makes the most of The Wolf Among Us‘ decidedly neon color palette with a peek inside the seedy underground nightclub, the Pudding & Pie, which kind of sounds like a rejected pub from Edgar Wright’s The World’s End. Or maybe Shaun of the Dead, given that nasty looking cricket bat that Bigby’s wielding. It’s never good news when someone comes up behind you at a gentlemen’s club with a cricket bat…unless it’s that kind of gentlemen’s club, but I digress.
So, there you have it, Fables fans! Looking pretty snazzy, if I do say so myself. Telltale will have an update on the ETA for The Wolf Among Us Episode 2’s release after the holidays, but chances are you’ll be busy playing The Walking Dead: Season Two, which comes back later this month.
What do you think of these screenshots? Are you looking forward to Episode 2? Let us know in the comments below!
