Gearbox Hands its Baby to Telltale Games

During the VGX show Telltale Games pulled a classic bait-and-switch with the announcement of Tales from the Borderlands, which everyone was expecting to be the announcement of a new Game of Thrones series. Tales from the Borderlands will take place in the world that Gearbox created; and while the trailer didn’t reveal a whole lot, there was plenty of information in the background.

This trailer starts you off looking at a Hyperion poster of Handsome Jack, meaning that it probably takes place before the mayhem of Borderlands 2. You are introduced to Fiona – a fraud, a scammer, and someone that is wanted by the authorities; which makes Fiona a perfect candidate for a Vault Hunter seeing as they are gun-toting killers. As the trailer continues you follow Fiona and her bandit friend into Marcus’ gun shop in Sanctuary. Then, she slowly places an Atlas shield in front of Marcus. If you played through the first Borderlands than you know that during that story you defeated Atlas along with their Crimson Lance private military. Because of this, Atlas products do not appear in Borderlands 2; which leads us to believe that Tales from the Borderlands does in fact take place between the two games.

One thing that is for sure is that Handsome Jack is back; as a digitized version of himself and looking as handsome as ever. Could Fiona’s one-eyed companion be Handsome Jack? But if this version of Handsome Jack is a pre-evil version, how are there already Handsome Jack posters? Even though this trailer is only 90 seconds long, it leaves us with more questions than we thought possible. We are looking forward to seeing what Telltale Games is going to do with this new addition to the Borderlands series. (Dev, Industry)

Doesn't interest me if its in the same style ad the Walking Dead. Although I like that game, I couldn't imagine it in the borderlands universe where I am accustomed to mayhem and fast paced action...
Wait and see I guess!

Telltale is a one trick pony. All of their games are the same...
