Tales from the Borderlands launches from Telltale today

Fans of the Borderlands series can pick-up the debut episode of ‘Tales from the Borderlands’ on PC from the Telltale Online Store, Steam, and other digital distribution services. The game will come to Macs on Thursday, November 27th. The episode is also available today in North America on PlayStation Network for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. The episode will be available Wednesday, November 26th on the Xbox Games Store for Xbox One and December 3rd for Xbox 360, and on the PlayStation Network for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in Europe.

The series will also be coming to compatible iOS devices via the App Store and to Android-based devices before the end of 2014. “Telltale has proven themselves to be in a class of their own as master story tellers in interactive entertainment – and they keep getting better and better,” said Randy Pitchford, president of Gearbox Software. “The collaboration on Tales from the Borderlands has been a tremendous joy and seeing what I believe is the best first episode they’ve ever created from their effort and talent is very exciting for me as a fan and as a partner.”

Set on the unforgiving world of Pandora after the events seen in Borderlands 2, Tales from the Borderlands is a five part episodic game series full of Borderlands’ trademark humor following two adventurers on their quest for greatness.

Players will control two characters throughout the season: 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. Rhys and Fiona are thrown together as unwilling partners in an adventure to recover cash they both think is theirs. This journey will take players on a wild ride where gangsters, bandit lords, and Vault Hunters are just some of the obstacles they will encounter in this new take on the award-winning universe created by Gearbox Software.
