Telltale Games, the publisher who have already brought us the phenomenal The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us episodes, has just released screenshots for their latest series in partnership with Gearbox Software and 2K Games, Tales from the Borderlands.
Although Telltale Games’ style for their videogames is very different from the shoot ’em up that is the Borderlands games, these guys know that there is a rich world here to tell some really good stories. The dark humor and dynamic characters that have have had less focus in the main games provides a great opportunity to bring more of the world of Pandora to life in ways that the main series can’t. For these episodes, you will play as two characters telling the same story from their own points of view. First up is Rhys, a robotic-armed hacker for Hyperion who is trying to make a little profit (in this world, who isn’t?). The second character is Fiona, a quick-witted, fast-talking con woman who is quickly running out of naive locals to get what she needs. As with other Telltale games, your choices will be important in determining how your story unfolds for these two characters. Keep going for more screenshots!
The first episode of Tales from the Borderlands is slated for release later this year. No specific platforms have been announced, but we can assume PC and Mac for certain, with consoles not far behind. For up-to-date information as it comes out, you can follow Telltale Games, Gearbox Software, and 2K Games on twitter, or visit the Tales website.
