Welcome back to Pandora, kiddos. It’s time for Tales from the Borderlands.

I don’t think I’ve ever met a gamer who doesn’t like Borderlands. Some like it more than others, to be sure, but everyone can appreciate its solid FPS action and funny, engaging narrative. When Telltale first announced that they’d be doing a series based on the game, titled Tales from the Borderlands and set to take place after the events of Borderlands 2 as part of the official canon, I wasn’t sure how I felt about it. I have zero doubt that I’ll love it, but is the Telltale framework really the best fit for Borderlands?

I don’t know if it’s the best fit, but I think Tales from the Borderlands gives us an opportunity to explore the Borderlands world in a different way than the upcoming pre-sequel or the inevitable Borderlands 3 will.

Dialogue plays a big part in Borderlands, but for the first time in the series, it won’t be all one way. As with all Telltale games, you’ll have the opportunity to probe and question and hopefully learn more about Pandora than we have before. If done right, Telltale’s series could give us all a deeper appreciation for the other games. I’m hoping that a lot – and I mean a lot – of existing characters show up in Telltale’s story along with the new protagonists and it sounds like I might just get my wish.

Keep on scrolling for the first Tales from the Borderlands screenshots as well as the press release text.

‘Tales from the Borderlands’  Revealed in 1st Screenshots from Telltale Games and Gearbox Software


Listen, kiddos…


Today we would like to release the first ever screenshots from our upcoming episodic game series, Tales from the Borderlands, premiering for download later this summer.


In the first round of screenshots, players get a closer look at the upcoming series set on Pandora AFTER the events of the critically-acclaimed Borderlands 2 from Gearbox Software and 2K Games.


Featuring two playable characters, the story is told from two unique perspectives that will alternate as the story progresses. These characters include Rhys, a scheming, low-level data-miner within Hyperion who’s plotting his own grand ambitions; and Fiona, a clever and classic fast-talking con-artist born and raised on Pandora out to pull off the grift of a lifetime.


While they themselves aren’t vault hunters, both Rhys and Fiona will also come across vault hunters such as Zer0 and other characters from the world ofBorderlands 2 throughout the series, as all events in Tales from the Borderlands will be part of the official Borderlands story canon.

Tales from the Borderlands: A Telltale Games Series will be published digitally by Telltale Games in partnership with Gearbox Software and 2K Games.
