Premiering this Summer – Award-winning independent studios teaming up to create a new story-driven game series set in the best-selling ‘Borderlands’ universe
Today, the first ever screenshots from the upcoming episodic game series, Tales from the Borderlands, premiering for download later this summer, have been released.
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 of Borderlands 2 throughout the series, as all events in Tales from the Borderlands will be part of the official Borderlands story canon.
Adam Sarasohn, Producer on Tales from the Borderlands has also offered additional details on the series on the Official PlayStation Blog this morning.
Tales from the Borderlands: A Telltale Games Series will be published digitally by Telltale Games in partnership with Gearbox Software and 2K Games.
