is gearing up for the summer release of Tales from the Borderlands
. It was announced
last year at VGX 2013. While the details on the game have remained scarce, Telltale Games has finally decided to open up a bit on a few bits and pieces of what this game will entail.
The first thing to note that Tales from the Borderlands
takes place on Pandora after the events of Borderlands 2
. You will take control of two different characters: 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.
All of the events in this game will be official canon to the Borderlands
storylines from previous games. The choices you make throughout the games, as with other Telltale Games titles, will affect how the storyline will play out through the episodic adventure. The loot you find in this game will carry over to other Borderlands
titles, though the specific games were not mentioned.
You will also see some familiar faces from the previous games, as seen in these screenshots:Tales from the Borderlands
doesn't have a set date, but is expected to release sometime this summer. Platforms have not been officially announced yet either, even if the screenshots confirm at least one Xbox platform, but we'll keep you in the loop as we hear more! What is your take on this spin-off in the Borderlands
