Telltale Announces The Wolf Among Us
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Telltale Games, in cooperation with DC Entertainment, has announced it plans to release The Wolf Among Us this summer. Based on Bill Willingham's award-winning comic book series FABLES and licensed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Telltale Games will premiere its new series on a variety of platform including Macs.

"Developing 'The Wolf Among Us' based on the 'FABLES' universe has allowed our studio to build upon all of the hallmarks of what makes our episodic series so engaging for players," said Dan Connors, CEO and Co-Founder of Telltale Games. "Through an evolution of our approach to choice and consequence, we can further explore the complexity of each and every iconic character in a universe rich with untold history from the darkest sides of the storybooks."

A consistent New York Times bestseller, 'FABLES' is one of DC Entertainment's longest-running series published under its Vertigo imprint since 2002. With over a dozen Eisner Awards, including Best Writer, Best New Series, and numerous wins for Best Serialized Story, the FABLES universe has become one of the richest mythologies in the world of comics, imagining that characters like Snow White, The Big Bad Wolf and Pinocchio from the world's most beloved storybooks are real - Real, and living among us, with all of their powers intact.

Set prior to the events seen in the first issue of the FABLES comic book series, The Wolf Among Us puts players in the role of Bigby Wolf, a man once more infamously known as The Big Bad Wolf. Now the sheriff of a hidden community in New York City, exiled from the land of fairy tales, Bigby is tasked by the bureaucrat Snow White to keep order within a society of mythical creatures and characters trying to remain undetected in the world of the mundane. From a chain-smoking member of 'The Three Little Pigs,' to a car-stealing Mr. Toad itching for his next wild ride, The Wolf Among Us examines the lives of beings straight from the pages of myth and lore, now trying to survive on the meanest and most run-down streets of New York City.

Arena Of Heroes Open Beta Event This Weekend
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Zattikka has announced they will offer open beta testing of Arena of Heroes this weekend. The upcoming cross-platform free-to-play MOBA game will be release for OS X, Windows and iOS in the second quarter of 2013. The developer promise the game will offer cross-platform competitive play both in real-time and asynchronously. Players will be able to choose from a variety of unique heroes to form their team of four to go to the Tower Apex Arena and battle against their opponents.

In the center of the Galaxy lies a giant metal dome. This dome protects the greatest power in the universe. The ever-changing surface of the dome is dotted by thousands of towers. When one tower is destroyed another must take its place. The power this dome holds, however, is a mystery to all but the god-like beings of the Halcyon Council.

To better protect this unfathomable and mysterious power, the Council selects an elite group of best and brightest from every species to serve as Guardians. Guardians are tasked with seeking out, training, and commanding Heroes in a constant battle for influence, fame, glory, and balance known as the Arena of Heroes.

The Arena began as a way for the richest and most powerful governments and organizations in the Galaxy to settle disputes, but once the mass communication relays were complete, the Arena quickly become the premiere form of entertainment in the entire Galaxy. Billions of billions of sentient beings view each match at work, at home, and on personal devices.

Quickly it became everyone’s dream to be a Hero in the arena. Hundreds of thousands of applicants are rejected every year. The interest was so great, the Council decided to find more Guardians to meet the demand.

Now it’s your turn. The Galaxy needs its best and brightest to defend the Eye, protect the mysterious power, and win fame, fortune, and influence among the highest echelons of Galactic power. The Council has summoned you to become a Guardian of the Arena. Will you answer the call?

What is the Arena?

The Arena of Heroes is where the battle for the Galaxy takes place. Two sides of up to 2 players (Guardians) select heroes and do everything they can to destroy the enemy base. Each team consists of 4 heroes.

Specific battles in the Arena take place on their own towers, but each tower is built the same. There are three “lanes,” or pathways between the two bases. In each lane there is a tower that must be defended or destroyed. Each base spawns minions – robotic fighters who attack enemies automatically.
