Telltale Games has shared the first batch of screenshots for their newest episodic series, Tales from the Borderlands, which is set in the world of Gearbox Software's Borderlands universe.
Tales takes place after the events of 2012 role-playing shooter Borderlands 2 and stars two new characters: the con-artist Fiona, born on Pandora and out to make the "grift of a lifetime," and data-miner Rhys, who works for weapons manufacturer Hyperion and is out on a mission to serve his own greedy needs.
The game will follow these two characters across Pandora as they seek to fulfill their own ambitions and encounter some familiar and new Borderlands faces along the way — including Zero the assassin, a playable character from Borderlands 2. The story will be told from both Fiona and Rhys' perspectives, which will change as the story unfolds.
Producer on the new series, Adam Sarasohn, has revealed some new details about the title as well through the PlayStation Blog
, including the fact that players will be able to use loot found in the episodes inside other Borderlands games. According to Sarasohn, the loot players collect in the epsodic downloadable series will be "available to use in other areas of the Borderlands franchise." Additional, like with Telltale's The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us, the choices players make will affect the storyline for their own personal game.
Tales from the Borderlands is slated to launch sometime later this year. Check out the screens below.
