Telltale's latest episodic adventure The Wolf Among Us [Free] has just received its second episode, called Smoke and Mirrors. Telltale seemed hopeful back in January that this second episode would launch simultaneously across all platforms the first week of February, and confirmed that would be the case earlier this week. The new episode will run you $4.99 and is downloaded from within the app itself, or alternatively if you've already purchased the Season Pass you can simply download it at no additional cost. Here's a recent trailer showing off the Smoke and Mirrors episode.

We really enjoyed The Wolf Among Us in our review from December, but it was entirely based on the first episode as that was the only episode available at the time. With the release of Smoke and Mirrors, we'll be updating that review taking the new content into account, and should continue doing that as each of the game's remaining episodes are released. Like most episodic games, or even TV shows and movies for that matter, one of the biggest drawbacks is having to wait for new episodes to release to continue driving the story forward. I can't wait to see how The Wolf Among Us turns out once all five episodes are available, but if you're playing along as they come out, you'll want to go grab Smoke and Mirrors right away.

    Can't wait until my daughter goes to bed so I can fully enjoy this. I'm a huge Walking Dead fan and thought that the first episode of TWAU surpassed TWD in every way imaginable.

    not ios related but if you have it on steam you need to pay for second episode?

    • bigjack66

      You need to pay for all episodes they're not giving them away!

      On Steam you only get to full the full season. So if you already bought it, the rest are free updates.

    Glad I finally broke down and bought the first chapter they other day. Haven't finished it yet son now I won't have to wait for the second!

    I like this but it still plays like a flick book at times. What's the problem the Walking Dead works ok?
