The wait for Telltale's next episodic adventure game will be over sooner than we thought. The Wolf Among Us is slated to arrive on all platforms this week.

Telltale broke the news on IGN, where it was revealed The Wolf Among Us - Episode 1: Faith would arrive on Oct. 11 for the Xbox 360, PC and Mac. The PlayStation 3 version is expected to follow just a few days later, but doesn't have an exact time just yet.

Based on the Vertigo comic Fables, The Wolf Among Us puts players in the role of Bigby Wolf. The story in Telltale's game takes place before the comic book begins, which makes it easily accessible to newcomers, though longtime fans of the Bill Willingham-penned story something to be excited about as The Wolf Among Us will cover territory never before seen in the monthly book.

This first episode will cost $4.99, though a season pass will be offered for $14.99, which gives access to episodes 2-5 at a discounted price. Telltale hasn't given specifics on the release dates for the remainder of The Wolf Among Us, but if the developer sticks to its Walking Dead release plan, you can expect about one episode a month for the next five months.
