Tales From the Borderlands Coming Summer 2014
TellTale Games have show very little of their take on the Borderlands universe but we finally have some more details and new screen shots for you!
The story follows two characters Rhys and Fiona. According to a new press release he is, “a scheming, low-level data-miner within Hyperion who’s plotting his own grand ambitions.” She is, “a clever and classic fast-talking con-artist born and raised on Pandora out to pull off the grift of a limetime.” Neither of them are actual Vault Hunters, but they will run into some during their adventures like Zero, the assassin character from Borderlands 2 and other familiar faces like Marcus Kincaid.
Everything that happens in the game will be part of the Borderlands canon going forward, but a TellTale producer on the Playstation blog said, “If you play Borderlands simply for the sake of shooting stuff, then you might not be a fan of Tales, but if you enjoy being on Pandora, hanging out with and finding out more about all of the amazing characters, and/or you’ve enjoyed what we did in The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us, then this might be a game series for you.”
So as suspected, shooting will be a very small element in the game. But there will be LOOT! In fact you’ll be able to use that loot in other areas of the Borderlands franchise, perhaps in the upcoming Pre-Sequel? Each episode will cost $4.99 or you can grab the Season Pass to save a few bucks, and it will be debuting sometime this summer.
