All Articles: The Wolf Among Us
BioWare’s Dragon Age: Inquisition won “Game of the Year” at the 2015 SXSW Gaming Awards, but 2014’s other big releases walked away with the rest of the categories.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor and The Last of Us: Left Behind were the only multi-award winners. Shadow of Mordor collected trophies for “Excellence in Gameplay,” “Excellence in Animation,” and “Excellence in Design and Direction,” while Naughty Dog’s expansion to The Last of Us was awarded with the “Most Valuable Add-On Content” trophy as well as “Most Valuable Character” (for Ellie).
The full list of winners (which also includes Destiny, Far Cry 4, Alien: Isolation, Transistor, Super Smash Bros. For Wii U, and many others) can be found after the break. (more…)
Today’s Xbox Games Store update should look familiar to anyone that checked in on yesterday’s PlayStation Store update. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, the first Call of Duty title developed by Sledgehammer Games, leads the pack on the Xbox One and Xbox 360. Advanced Warfare stars Kevin Spacey in a pivotal role and includes a near-future storyline with plenty of advanced weaponry never-before-seen in a Call of Duty game.
Other games available today include:
- Rocksmith 2014, Ubisoft’s guitar tutor is now available on the Xbox One.
- The Wolf Among Us, Telltale’s Fables adaptation is now available on the Xbox One.
- Magic 2015, Microsoft’s latest digital adaptation of Magic the Gathering is now available for the Xbox One.
- Disney Infinity: 2.0 Edition, Disney Interactive’s virtual toy box can now be downloaded through the Xbox Games Store for the Xbox 360 provided you own some of the actual Disney Infinity toys.
- MotoGP 14, Milestone’s motorcycle racing game skids onto the Xbox 360.
More details about all of these games can be found after the break. (more…)
Just like this week’s retail release slate, most publishers avoided the PlayStation Store this week because the juggernaut that is Call of Duty has staked a permanent claim on the first Tuesday in November. This year’s edition, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (PS4, PS3), adds Kevin Spacey and a near-future storyline to the mix.
But a few games have taken up the challenge, including Edmund McMillen’s procedurally-generated action RPG, The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth (PS4, Vita). This expanded and updated edition of the game includes redone visuals and tons of other tweaks. Sony’s own downloadable version of SingStar (PS4, PS3) was also released yesterday after a slight delay. Also available this week is Milestone’s latest motorcycle racer, MotoGP 14 (PS4, PS4, Vita); a standalone download of Disney Infinity: 2.0 Edition (PS4, PS3); and a handful of other titles.
It’s the first full week of November, so you know what that means, don’t you? Activision is rolling out the latest entry in their Call of Duty franchise, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Starring Kevin Spacey as Jonathan Irons, the head of a massive Private Military Contractor, the near-future shooter will be released for the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
Naturally, this also means that all of the other publishers are ducking Advanced Warfare and holding their big November games until later in the month. Sometimes Nintendo bucks the trend with a big game, but not this year. Instead, we get the 3DS game Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley (the first in the series to be developed in-house at Natsume) and Telltale’s collected edition of The Wolf Among Us (PS3, PS4, Vita, Xbox 360, Xbox One). And speaking of collections, 2K Games bundled together BioShock Infinite: The Complete Edition for the PS3 and Xbox 360 this week.
The full list of this week’s new releases can be found after the break. (more…)
After months of waiting, Telltale Games has announced exactly when three of their most critically-acclaimed games (The Walking Dead, The Walking Dead Season 2, and The Wolf Among Us) will be available for the PS4 and Xbox One.
Posting on Twitter, Telltale has said they will release both The Walking Dead and The Walking Dead Season 2 for the PS4 and Xbox One (as a downloadable game and as a retail disc) sometime in October. In addition to The Walking Dead’s next-gen debut, Telltale will also release a retail disc version of The Walking Dead Season 2 for the PS3, Vita, and Xbox 360 in October.
In a second Twitter update, the publisher also confirmed that The Wolf Among Us will be available for the PS4 and Xbox One (again, as a downloadable game and as a retail disc) sometime in November. And just to make everything nice and official, retail disc versions for the PS3, Vita, and Xbox 360 will also be released in November.
With Telltale putting the final stamp on their Summer games, we’re that much closer to the Fall release of Tales From the Borderlands and the (eventual) reveal of Game of Thrones.
It’s all been building up to this. The season finale of Telltale’s adaptation of Fables, The Wolf Among Us, is now available to download from the Xbox Live Game Store. Episode 5 is entitled Cry Wolf and, just like all of the previous entries in the episodic season, it can be download individually (for $4.99) or as part of the Season Pass (for $19.99).
The Wolf Among Us Episode 5: Cry Wolf ($4.99)
The final episode of a five-part game series based on the award-winning Fables comic book series by Bill Willingham (published by DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint).
The series has been incredibly well received and I’m sure Telltale is working on The Wolf Among Us Season 2 as we speak.
It’s another grab bag of games in this week’s PlayStation Store update. Leading the charge is Cry Wolf, the fifth, and final, episode of Telltale Games’ The Wolf Among Us for the PS3. Also available this week is…
- Anime adaptation One Piece Unlimited World Red (PS3)
- Cycling simulation Le Tour de France: Season 2014 (PS3)
- Re-released platformer Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition (PS3, PS4, Vita Cross-Buy)
- Cheesy puzzle adventure MouseCraft (PS3, PS4, Vita Cross-Buy)
- And the adventure game Sacra Terra: Kiss of Death (PS3)
Several retailers let the cat out of the bag a bit early, but Telltale Games officially announced today that The Walking Dead Season 1, The Walking Dead Season 2, and The Wolf Among Us will soon be available for the PS4 and Xbox One. According to Telltale, a disc-based compilation of each episodic series will be available “later this year.” PS3 and Xbox 360 owners will also get a chance to purchase The Walking Dead Season 2 and The Wolf Among Us on disc as well to join the previously released disc-based version of The Walking Dead Season 1.
Telltale has promised to announce a release date for the compilation discs soon, and this news lends further credence to the belief that Tales From the Borderlands will also be available for current-generation and new-generation platforms (and the PC) when it launches sometime this Summer or Fall.
