New Tales from the Borderlands is the sequel to Telltale’s narrative-driven game from a few years ago. It brings back the choice-based gameplay and mashes it up with the Borderlands universe. In the new game, the New Tales from the Borderlands characters will be pitted on a new adventure against the Tediore corporation.
Of course, making choices that affected everyone in the game was the best part of the last game and this genre in general, so we’re going to look at the New Tales from the Borderlands characters to see just who we will be playing as and encountering on our playthrough.
So, read on below to find out everything we know about the ensemble cast. We will be adding to this guide as more information becomes available, so rest assured these are all the latest details.
New Tales from the Borderlands characters
The New Tales from the Borderlands characters are:
Anu is an altruistic scientist. From what we can gather from the trailer, she is level-headed and insightful, during which she says she has always wanted to change the universe for the better.
Octavio is Anu’s streetwise and ambitious younger brother who desires nothing more than fame and fortune. “More importantly, we’ll be drowning in cash!” he yells during the trailer.
Fran is the ferocious, witty, frogurt-slinging waitress that gets wrapped up with Anu and Octavio along the way. “If you happen to see any corpses along the way, don’t worry about them. They’re… just, yeah.”
We don’t know much about him, but Stapleface doesn’t look like a good guy…
Phuong is a research assistant at Atlas. She is friends with Anu and loves to kick back with pals and play Vaultlanders.
TIMM-E is the personal assistant of Rhys Strongfork, CEO of Atlas.
Sponsorbot is described as “part life-coach, part spiritual guru, part legally mandated companion.” Yikes.
