Tales from the Borderlands was released in 2014 by Telltale Games told a story between the events of Borderlands 2 and Borderlands 3 and followed two unreliable narrators – Rhys and Fiona – as they searched for a vault and ran into fan-favorite Borderlands characters like Claptrap.
In our review of the first of five episodes of Tales from the Borderlands, we said, “With only a brief introduction to Rhys and Fiona, they have already become a pair of my favorite Telltale characters, and the fantastic final scene of the Zer0 Sum has be anxiously awaiting my return trip to Pandora.”
Telltale Games as it was back then is no longer, and Gearbox Software is instead developing the game completely in-house. 2K games will be handling the publishing.
This new Tales from the Borderlands will follow Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands as Gearbox’s next game. In our Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands review, we said that it is a fantasy-themed Borderlands spin-off that’s hilarious, action-packed, and ridiculous, even if it plays it a bit safe.”
