Telltale Games Releases a Wonderfully Bloody Trailer for Tales from the Borderlands

Posted November 13, 2014 by John Newby in Video Games

Telltale Games has finally provided a look at the upcoming Tales from the Borderlands episodic game, and it’s an interesting one.

Tales from the Borderlands, as shown in the story trailer released today, is set after the events of Borderlands 2. A new executive (played by Patrick Warburton) has taken over Hyperion and made one of your characters into a “fancy” janitor. The other character is a con artist looking to cash in on an exciting venture.

Telltale Games released some story information about the upcoming game that sheds some light on the story aspects.

You’ll play as Rhys, a Hyperion ‘suit’ with dreams of being the next Handsome Jack, and Fiona, a Pandoran con artist looking to score her biggest ever swindle. Thrown together as unwilling partners in an adventure to recover cash they both think is theirs, their journey will take you on a wild ride where gangsters, bandit lords, and Vault Hunters are just some of the obstacles you’ll encounter, in this new take on the award-winning universe created by Gearbox Software.”

Telltale also released information about the casting choices of Tales from the Borderlands, and Troy Baker (obviously) plays one main character. However, Telltale made some entertaining choices for other characters in the game. Laura Bailey (Fetch from Infamous: Second Son) plays the other main character, Fiona; Patrick Warburton makes an appearance as the new Hyperion executive, and Chris Hardwick plays a character named Vaughn.

We don’t quite know how Tales from the Borderlands will be to actually play, but the story trailer shows off the wonderful violence and humor that Borderlands is known for. Thankfully, this trailer also shows some new characters that will inhabit Pandora. I personally can’t wait for a new reason to visit Pandora, especially if I get to listen to Patrick Warburton for hours on end. He has an oddly relaxing voice.

Tales from the Borderlands will be available at an unknown date for $4.99 per episode. However, Telltale will be selling a season pass with all five episodes for $19.99. The episodic new game will be available for PS4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC/Mac, and iOS/Android devices.
