The original Tales from the Borderlands was quite the surprise hit, a narrative adventure game developed by Telltale software which used in a very smart way the world of characters of the Borderlands series. Now, 2K and Gearbox have announced that players may soon return to that world, so here’s everything we know about New Tales From the Borderlands release date, gameplay and story.
Fans of the original need not worry too much, since Gearbox Software partnered with several alumni of the original Telltale Games team, in order to craft an all-new story. As for the stories being a rehash of previous ones in the series, well, the world of Borderlands is definitely ripe with possibilities to always tell exciting new stories.
So, since we are sure everyone is already excited and looking forward to this adventure, here’s all of our news about New Tales From the Borderlands release date, gameplay and story. There’s even a trailer!
New Tales from the Borderlands release date
New Tales from the Borderlands will be released on October 21, 2022, for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via both Steam and the Epic Games Store. It will be priced at £34.99 / €39.99 for the standard digital edition, and £44.99 / €49.99
for the digital + physical combo, which also includes Tales from the Borderlands.
New Tales from the Borderlands story
Despite the name, the new game will function as a standalone adventure, featuring all new original characters. While we can surely expect some callbacks to the previous Telltale adventure game, the new game can be enjoyed even by players who have not experienced any game in the series.
Players can expect to face a planetary invasion and the usual mixture of bloodthirsty monsters, evil capitalists and a whole bunch of weird folks. Players will guide scientist Anu, along with her ambitious, “streetwise” brother Octavio, and the fierce, frogurt-slinging Fran. Clearly, each decision we take in the game will have quite an impact on the narrative, which we can expect to also influence future titles in this five-part series.
