Telltale Games, known best for 'The Walking Dead' and 'The Wolf Among Us,' series is becoming the king of teaser campaigns. With both 'Game of Thrones' (details here) and 'Tales From The Borderlands' on the docket, the dev is squeezing as much anticipation out for its remaining 2014 titles. 'Tales From The Borderlands' is already established as offering a new direction for the developer (To see why, go here.) But finally, after several very lean months, new info on the new series is available to all.
First off here's the name of the first episode:
'Tales from the Borderlands: A Telltale Games Series - Episode 1: Zer0 Sum'
'Tales from the Borderlands' is a five part episodic game series from the creators of 'The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series.' Set on the unforgiving world of Pandora after the events seen in Borderlands 2, this is a story full of Borderlands’ trademark humor, following two adventurers on their quest for greatness.
You’ll play as Rhys, a Hyperion ‘suit’ with dreams of being the next Handsome Jack, and Fiona, a Pandoran con artist looking to score her biggest ever swindle. Thrown together as unwilling partners in an adventure to recover cash they both think is theirs, their journey will take you on a wild ride where gangsters, bandit lords, and Vault Hunters are just some of the obstacles you’ll encounter, in this new take on the award-winning universe created by Gearbox Software.
Telltale has gone into detail about the game voice talent:
'Tales from the Borderlands' cast includes @TroyBakerVA as Rhys, @LauraBaileyVO as Fiona, @nerdist as Vaughn, @erin_yvette as Sasha @paddywarbucks as Vasquez, @nolan_north as August, @dameonclarke as Handsome Jack and MUCH more to be revealed!
'Game of Thrones' is coming to the PS4 and Xbox One along with the usual Telltale Games premiere platforms (360, PS3, PC, & iOS), and as it turns out, the same is true for 'Tales from the Borderlands.' Other platforms will follow. Now all we need is an exact date.
The season premiere episode of Tales from the Borderlands, titled 'Zer0 Sum,' will soon be available for digital download worldwide across multiple platforms.
Each episode will be available via PlayStation Network for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 for US$4.99 or equivalent. Alternatively, consumers can purchase a Season Pass for US$19.99 or equivalent, which entitles players to all five episodes in the season as they become available.
The season will also be available on Xbox Games Store for Xbox One and Xbox 360 for just US$4.99 or equivalent per episode. Players will also be able to purchase a Season Pass upgrade for US$14.99, which entitles players to Episodes 2-5 as they release.
The series will also be available for PC/Mac via the Telltale Online Store, Steam, and other online digital distribution outlets as a Season Pass for US$24.99 or equivalent that includes entitlement to all five episodes as they release.
The series will also be coming to compatible iOS devices via the App Store and to Android-based devices before the end of 2014.
