From the makers of The Walking Dead comes an all new episodic adventure, again based on a comic book property.

This time around, it's Bill Willinghanm's Fables which is getting the adaptation treatment, a mature hard-boiled thriller which just so happens to be based in a world where fairytale characters are real.

The player will take on the role of Bigby, the big bad wolf, as he investigates the murder of a Fable. And that's just the beginning of a tale that's going to get a whole lot darker before the end.

Check out the trailer for a look at the glorious artwork which brings Willingham's world to life.

After weeks of teasing, Telltale has finally revealed the release date for the first episode of their new series, titled Faith. It's set to debut on PC and Xbox 360 worldwide on Friday the 11th of October with a PS3 release planned for the very near future. Though anyone who tried to play The Walking Dead on PS3 might decide to ignore that platform this time.

Pricing will be $25 US on Steam (though they're currently offering a great 10% discount) and you'll be able to grab all five on Xbox Live for $20, or $4.99 each. Alternatively, you can buy the game through the official Telltale site and you'll get the chance to nab a boxed copy once the five episodes are complete for the cost of shipping.

Look for part one of The Wolf Among Us Oct. 11.
