If a picture is worth a thousand words, then these screenshots for story-driven Tales from the Borderlands probably cover the first two episodes.
Telltale’s adventure-y take on the Borderlands universe has today received a bundle of new screens. You can see dual protagonists Rhys and Fiona (and their “smash cards”), scary corporate man Hugo Vasquez, “best friend” Vaughn, THE STRANGER, a bandit attack, aaaaand… a loaderbot. Which seems to have some sort of equipment choice thing going on. I’m kind of intrigued by that, actually, insofar as “increases max health” and “grants immunity to burn damage” sort of indicates that part of the branching story might actually come down to equipment loadouts, and that’s a pretty neat way of keeping things Borderlands.
Tales from the Borderlands – or at least, its first episode – is due out later this year, after The Walking Dead Season 2 and The Wolf Among Us conclude. Screenshots below.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
