Sometime this year Telltale Games will be taking on yet another popular franchise, and this time it will be be in the world of Borderlands. Tales From the Borderlands has the player controlling two different characters that both share the same experience, giving the player two different perspectives on the same events.
Now, 5 new screenshots have been revealed that show off some more action from the game. Check them out in the gallery below.
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.
Developer Telltale Games Has revealed more information on their highly-anticipated dive into the Borderlands world with the game Tales From The Borderlands, and they have just shed some more light on what people can expect from the game.
The game is set after the events of Borderlands 2 and will feature two different takes on the same story with con-artist Fiona and Hyperion worker Rhys. It’s up to the player to figure who the hell is telling the truth.
Telltale co-founder Kevin Bruner said the following about the game: “You never really play what actually happened, you’re playing this Big Fish version of what happened.”
Condemn OR Condone: It’s no big secret that I flippin’ love both Borderlands games, so even though this is being developed by a different company, I take comfort in the fact that that company is Telltale Games. I love that it will be focusing on some minor but interesting characters while also briefly containing some of the characters that we know and love. In other words: I NEED THIS.
Telltale Games will be at next months SXSW film, music and interactive media festival in which they will be discussing Tales From The Borderlands. Their panel will include all of the details of the partnership between the two brands and what we can expect from the upcoming game. Continue reading →
