When a brand new Telltale Games shaped in 2019 from the bought ashes of the fallen studio, one among their first actions was to announce they’d make The Wolf Among Us 2. And that was about all they needed to say for a number of years. Now, they’ve lastly opened up, with a brand new trailer and 20 minutes of devchat. Guess which fictional character the Big Bad Wolf is giving a kicking this time!

Wolfamongus, to refresh your reminiscence, is an journey sport primarily based on Bill Willingham’s Fables comedian e-book collection. It’s the story of ‘fictional’ characters, largely from folklore and fairytales, who fled into our actuality to flee a civil conflict. It’s an excellent comedian, and the primary sport is nice too (we declared it 2014’s finest journey sport). It focuses on Bigby, the fabled Big Bad Wolf, who’s gone straight and acts as sheriff of the hidden district of New York City the place the Fables dwell (it might be fairly unhealthy if humanity found magical beings existed).

The sequel is ready six months after the primary, with winter now upon NYC and a brand new case for our hard-boiled sheriff to unravel utilizing investigation and violence. For extra information, try this dev chat from yesterday with online game advertising celeb Geoffrey Keigh:

While the brand new Telltale just isn’t the outdated Telltale and lots of workers needed to scatter to different studios after the corporate closed, they’ve tried to get individuals again. Game Informer reported in January reported that just about half of the brand new Telltale is now outdated Telltale people. They’ve additionally referred to as within the assist of AdHoc Studio for Wolfamongus 2, who had been based by former Telltale people, together with the primary sport’s director, Nick Herman.

It’s not but clear whether or not this sport will carry over something from the Wolfless spin-off which arrived whereas Telltale had been lifeless, Among Us. But I’ll let you know that Bluebeard is lifeless sussy.

As nicely as choosing up a challenge from the outdated Telltale, the brand new Telltale are additionally making a sport primarily based on The Expanse, with the assistance of Life Is Strange: True Colors studio Deck Nine Games. The sport stars the present’s finest character, Camina Drummer, and actor Cara Gee can be voicing her within the sport too.
