Tales from the Borderlands Episode 3 available starting June 23rd


Telltale Games, in partnership with Gearbox Software and 2K Games, have released all-new screenshots today for the third installment in their Tales from the Borderlands: A Telltale Games Series entitled ‘Catch a Ride.’  

Spoiler Alert:  If you haven’t played the first two episodes yet, and are planning to, the next paragraph after the jump may contain some light spoilers.




After a dizzying escape from a very-near-almost-certain-death scenario (involving statuesque buttocks), Rhys and Fiona find themselves looking for another piece of the puzzle that will lead them to the untold riches of Vault key ownership. Lost in the mysterious jungle of an Atlas terraforming facility, Fiona finds help from an unexpected mentor, Rhys continues to share brain-space with the disembodied mind of a dead dictator, and love is in the air. Pursued by the ruthless criminal ‘Queenpin’ Vallory, and with very little help from Vaughn’s accountancy skills (or stellar abs), getting anywhere near the Vault will be entirely up to you.




Episode 3 is expected to be available for digital download the week of June 23rd on PC/Mac via the Telltale Online Store, Steam, and other digital distribution outlets.  It will also be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Android, and iOS devices.  Telltale Games will post on Twitter and Facebook when an exact release date has been nailed down.




If you are not familiar with this new Telltale entry in the Borderlands franchise, let me bring you up to speed.  The game is set on the unforgiving world of Pandora after the events seen in Borderlands 2Tales from the Borderlands is a five part episodic game series full of Borderlands’ trademark humor following two adventurers on their quest for greatness.




Much like other Telltale episodic game series, players control two characters throughout the season: Rhys, a Hyperion ‘suit’ with dreams of being the next Handsome Jack, and Fiona, a Pandoran con artist looking to score her biggest ever swindle.  Rhys and Fiona are thrown together as unwilling partners in an adventure to recover cash they both think is theirs.  This journey will take players on a wild ride where gangsters, bandit lords, and Vault Hunters are just some of the obstacles they will encounter in this new take on the award-winning universe created by Gearbox Software.
