At the recent SXSW festival in Austin, developers from Telltale Games and Gearbox Software convened to discuss their forthcoming collaborative effort, the adventure game set in the colourful Borderlands universe titled Tales from the Borderlands.
The debut trailer featured a few new characters from the series, and during the panel we learned that two of those will be the new game's protagonists (via Polygon
The two characters featured in the trailer are Fiona, the well-dressed con artist, and Rhys, the cybernetically-enhanced Hyperion company man. The player will control both characters as they recall, in turn, the plot of the game from the future. Both narrators' versions, however, are fish tales — players will quickly notice the discrepancies between the versions of the events presented by Fiona and Rhys.
More details on the two studio approach and the game's planned mechanics can be found in the panel discussion, which has now been published in full for you viewing pleasure (thanks Eurogamer
