Telltale Games has proven to be a master of storytelling with numerous successful adaptations of exciting intellectual properties, including two recently released on Xbox One: The Walking Dead Seasons 1 and 2 and The Wolf Among Us. Telltale now looks to expand upon the mythology behind Pandora, the setting for Gearbox Software’s highly successful Borderlands Series, with Tales from the Borderlands. The game will be released for multiple platforms including Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Episodes may be purchased for $4.99 each. After buying the first episode players will have the option of getting a season pass for an additional $14.99 (saving the price of one episode).
The first episode, Zer0 Sum, will be releasing soon. The series will feature some pretty recognizable voice actors: Troy Baker as Rhys, Laura Bailey as Fiona, Chris Hardwick as Vaughn, Erin Yvette as Sasha, Patrick Warburton as Vasquez and Dameon Clarke as Handsome Jack. The series will take place after Borderlands 2 with some plot tie-ins to the recently released Borderlands the Pre-sequel.
The latest data feed from Pandora is in, and we’re delighted to reveal that it contains a mouthwatering new trailer for Telltale Games’ eagerly anticipated, story-driven, episodic adventure game Tales from the Borderlands, not to mention the first nuggets of detail.
The data we received confirms that Tales from the Borderlands, which is due for release this summer, will be set after the events of Borderlands 2 and will feature two playable characters whose stories will unfold alternately. The first of these characters is Fiona – a quick-witted, fast-talking (but probably loveable) rogue who’s out to make the biggest score of her life. The second is Rhys, a selfish and scheming Hyperion data-miner with big ambitions. It has also been confirmed that whilst neither of these characters is actually a Vault Hunter, they will both interact with famous characters from the Borderlands series including ZerO and more. (Here’s hoping for a fairly heavyweight cameo from Tiny Tina!)
In addition to this already rather exciting selection of Tales from media, XBLA Fans can also report that Telltale Games Producer Adam Sarasohn has recently confirmed a number of interesting details about the game over at the PlayStation Blog. In addition to hinting at the various possibilities that the vast Borderlands world might hold in store for players, the key details can be found after the jump.
We’re late, and it seems that’s become somewhat of a trend for us lately. Our Game of the Year awards weren’t doled out until January, and now our look forward at the XBLA and Xbox One XBLA-type games of 2014 is just making its way to you in February. You were on your own when it came to planning out January’s releases, but now it’s time for our annual look ahead at the top downloadable games likely to arrive on an Xbox platform during the (remainder of) the year ahead. Read on to find out what you can expect out of Xbox over the next (not quite) 365.
Capcom’s Strider, today most commonly known for the main character’s appearances in the Marvel vs. Capcom franchise, will be the star of his own game next week on February 19 for the first time in more than 20 years. This particular entry appears to draw more from his NES game than any of his other appearances, mixing the exploration of Metroid with the visceral combat of Ninja Gaiden. As a result, comparisons to Castlevania: Symphony of the Night are inevitable and likely warranted. If any company can follow in the footsteps of these giants, it’s Capcom — seeing what it does in a two-dimensional environment given the horsepower of the Xbox One will be a treat.
During the VGX awards this past weekend, Telltale Games revealed two brand new episodic game series. One announcement confirmed a rumor, while another is a bit of a surprise.
Telltale revealed it is in fact working on a Game of Thrones series in partnership with HBO. The game will take its inspiration from the television series, which is based on George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire book series. Players will be thrown into the action and politics of Westeros, having the power to make choices that will impact the narrative.
Telltale also announced that it will be collaborating with Gearbox Software to make Tales from Borderlands, a spin-off series set in the universe of the popular Borderlands franchise. Despite being part of a series known for shooting and looting, Telltale’s signature storytelling will be front and center. Taking place on Pandora, the game will feature a cast of familiar faces as well as brand new characters.
Both games will be coming in 2014. With these games, plus The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us, it’s obvious next year is going to be big for both Telltale and its fans. You can watch the teaser trailers for both games after the jump.
