When Tales From the Borderlands, an “all-new story-driven episodic game series” by Telltale Games, was announced at VGX, they failed to mention what platforms this would be on. Thanks to a press release, it has been confirmed that the game will be out in 2014 on “home consoles, PC/Mac, and mobile devices.” We’ll have to wait for details on exactly which consoles, but PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One are good bets.
Dan Connors, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games talked about Tales From the Borderlands:
Gearbox shares the independent spirit that Telltale was founded on, and like Telltale, they’ve broken the boundaries of what to expect within a gaming genre. Our partnership is something that we are very excited about, because it will unite the incredibly rich world of Borderlands with Telltale’s focus on story-telling driven by player choice, and characters that people truly care about.
Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox, then discussed the partnership:
At the 2012 Spike TV VGAs, our studios and games – Borderlands 2 and The Walking Dead – were fortunate to do incredibly well that night winning more awards than any other games! So we met up later for a great first date, one thing lead to another and, well, we’re having a baby. Borderlands is incredibly important to us, so it is meaningful to share that with this partnership. I have great confidence and excitement for what Telltale has in store for its all-new adventures in our universe.
You can expect Tales From the Borderlands to “explore and expand on the stories of existing and all-new characters from the world of Pandora,” as seen in Borderlands 2.
