Thanks to latest issue of OXM being handed out to those who attended Gearbox’s PAX East panel, we now have some brand new information pertaining to the upcoming Tales From The Borderlands.
First up, we now know that the game will shift perspectives between the two previously-announced protagonists Fiona and Rhys, with the game often showing you the same scenes from the two different viewpoints.
The Co-creator of the game, Harrison Pink, said the following to OXM:
“What we’re trying to do is use money in the game as agency.”
It sounds like this means that money will play an integral part in the game, with greed in particular being a key part in some of the game’s bigger choice scenarios.
The biggest question mark for this game is what the gameplay will be like, and Telltale has described the gameplay as somewhere between the point-and-click of a typical Telltale game and the FPS aspects of the Borderlands series.
Condemn (OR) Condone:
This news really bumps up my interest in Tales From The Borderlands. This new split-perspective gameplay sounds refreshing, and the fact that we have an idea about the game’s gameplay is a relief. I’m really curious to see what this hybrid point-and-click/FPS gameplay will be like, but I’m just happy to hear that the FPS elements won’t be lost entirely.
