Rather than sourcing an external developer as they did in the past, Gearbox Quebec is leading the development of New Tales from the Borderlands, with development commencing on the game after the development for Borderlands 3 wrapped. It’s worth noting, however, that Gearbox Software has partnered with key players from the old Telltale narrative team.
All of New Tales from the Borderlands five episodes will be available from launch, which is a relief given we grew accustomed to long, drawn-out seasons during Telltale’s reign over the adventure genre.
Some key features of New Tales from the Borderlands include:
The Underdog Story of Three Loveable Losers – Decide the fates of altruistic scientist Anu, her ambitious, “streetwise” brother Octavio, and the fierce, frogurt-slinging Fran. With nothing left to lose and everything to gain, you’ll claw and con your way through this thrilling five-part story.
An Extraordinary Cinematic Adventure – The Borderlands aren’t just home to Vault Hunters, psychos, and weapons-corp CEOs; they’re full of downtrodden, intrepid civilians just trying to get by. With a host of returning and fresh faces, this unforgettable tale is sure to delight fans new and old.
Your Choices Shape the Outcome – The decisions you make determine how your story ends in unexpected ways. Whether it’s Anu’s vision of a universe that markets more than weapons, Octavio’s dreams of fame and fortune, or Fran’s frosty plot for revenge, their success or failure depends on you.
Pre-order to get the Adventure Capital Pack, featuring cosmetics for Anu, Octavio, and Fran, 10,000 in-game currency, and an in-game FL4K Vaultlander collectible! The game is releasing in two editions, including digital bonus content, allowing players to select the option that’s right for them:
Standard Edition (Digital Only) for $59.95 AUD.
Deluxe Edition (Digital + Physical) for $79.95 AUD, which also includes Tales from the Borderlands.
New Tales from the Borderlands is releasing this year on October 21 for PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
