Hey everyone! This weekend, Telltale Games, Gearbox, and 2K Games unveiled Tales from the Borderlands at SXSW with the very first details from the upcoming series… and we have the full video of the panel right here to share with you!
We can finally reveal that you will play as TWO protagonists: Rhys, a Hyperion company man with a robotic arm and a knack for hacking; and Fiona, a fast-talking con artist. The story will be told from both of their perspectives, and here’s the twist: both of these characters are lying jerks, so you’re never playing what REALLY happened. It’s more like playing each of their interpretations of events, and the truth lies somewhere in between…
Set on Pandora after the events of Borderlands 2 and all its DLC, Tales from the Borderlands will explore characters who aren’t your typical heroes or badasses. Rhys and Fiona aren’t vault hunters, but they definitely have their own agendas, doing whatever swindling, cheating, or backstabbing they need to in order to survive. Rest assured it’s not all talk, either — there’ll be plenty of the crazy, over-the-top action you’ve come to expect from Borderlands as well, translated into the Telltale style.
Definitely watch the video of the Two Sides to Every Story panel for all the finer details on what’s to come in Tales from the Borderlands (plus things you never knew about the physiology of skags), and look out for the season premiere later this year!
