Wolf Among Us - Season Pass delayed on PSN

#1 Posted by Nadafinga (957 posts) -

So I went into the PlayStation Store last night to download Wolf Among Us, and I didn't see the option for the $19.99 season pass, only the $5 single episode "Faith." Not wanting to spend more than I had to, I googled it and it seems that for some reason they weren't able to get the season pass up in time, but should be up by saturday Oct 19th.

Slightly annoying since the PSN version already released 4 days later than the rest of the platforms (PC, mac, X360). But I'll be waiting for Saturday to buy. What about you guys, did you grab the PSN version of Faith right away? Or will you wait for the Season Pass?

That is such a weird thing to have a delay on. Hang in there, it's worth the wait!

The season pass doesn't include the first episode. At least not on the 360.

@fourwude: So the cost is the same with or without the pass? Pretty weird.

No, you have to buy the first episode for $5, but then the season pass is $15, which includes episodes 2-5.

It's bizarre for sure, especially since this wasn't an issue with Walking Dead.

@bane122: They just divorced the first episode from the rest which is a bit weird.

They should have called it "Season Pass for episodes 2-5" to clear confusion.

@fourwude: I wonder if its to keep Episode 1 as a single sku, that way when sales numbers come out they can say that Episode 1 has sold X amount of copies. Otherwise you would have some people buying the single episode, while others buy the season pass, and your numbers are split between two different skus.

The PS3 season pass is $19.99 and includes all 5 episodes (same as the walking dead)

TellTale is really screwing over PS3 users since the Season Pass in $20 and includes ALL the episodes. If you bought the first episode already you're SOL. They should have done the same thing as 360 with regards to the season pass.

Yeah, I saw that. Pretty shitty. Good thing I don't plan on playing it until the entire season is out.

Weird move, especially since if I recall the PS3 version of the Walking Dead generally released earlier.
