Telltale Games and Gearbox have just released an awesome new BTS / interview about their upcoming game Tales from the Borderlands game series and we have to say we are quite intrigued. Not to mention some new images and screenshots from the game:
Apparently, this isn’t the first time the Telltale Games and Gearbox have come together to do the creative tango, having worked together on Telltale Games’ Poker Night 2; Gearbox elaborates on wanting to make the Borderlands franchise more than just a shoot ’em up FPS, but show deeper, richer interactions via Telltale’s infamous choice-based style of gameplay. The fact that we are still buzzing off of The Pre-Sequel, this new styled gameplay which takes place within the Borderlands universe and sits snugly on the timeline of things, not just some concept, one-off game, opens fans to greater possibilities and fresher perspectives.
In Tales From The Borderlands, you play as both Rhys, a Hyperion ‘company man’ looking to become the next Handsome Jack and as Fiona, a con-artist looking to score big. You pretty much thrown reluctantly into an excursion in hunt for loads of cash, a payload which they are unwilling to share. But between them and the cash is sprawling landscapes, gangsters, bandit lords, and Vault Hunters and crazies, amongst other obstacles.
Check out the interview video in the player below, where you can also see new footage from the game itself:
And if you haven’t seen the awesome trailer, we recommend you do, as Tales From The Borderland offers barrels of laughs and buckets of blood in equal measures. See the trailer in the player below:
The first episode of Tales From The Borderlands called “Zer0 Sum” will be available soonish, we suspect by the end of 2014 on iOS and Android devices. Right alongside the House of Forrester.
