New Tales from the Borderlands announced for PC and consoles

Gearbox Software and 2K Games have announced New Tales from the Borderlands, a standalone adventure set in the Borderlands universe.

Originally released as a five-episode series between November 2014 and October 2015, Tales from the Borderlands was a popular Borderlands spinoff from the now-defunct Telltale Games. It used the TellTale narrative-driven and choice-based adventure game formula.

Here is what fans can expect from the new game:

New Tales from the Borderlands immerses players in a deep and original story full of unexpected turns, heartwarming emotion, and classic Borderlands humor. Within the perpetually war-torn metropolis of Promethea, players will decide the fates of three underdogs out to make mayhem their business, with altruistic scientist Anu, her ambitious “streetwise” brother Octavio, and the fierce, frogurt-flinging Fran.

Players will face down a planetary invasion, vicious vault monster, and cold-hearted capitalists in this cinematic thrill ride where what happens next depends on their decisions. Every choice big or small can impact how the story unfolds, often in unexpected ways, and only by playing through the game will players fully understand how their decisions can change the Borderlands.

New Tales from the Borderlands is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch on October 21, 2022.  Starting today, consumers can pre-order on PC and consoles. Those who pre-order will get the Adventure Capital Pack. It features cosmetics for Anu, Octavio, and Fran, 10,000 in-game currency, and an in-game FL4K Vaultlander collectible.
