I have the biggest soft spot for Telltale games, and an even bigger love for the Borderlands franchise. Put one and one together and it’s obvious that Tales from the Borderlands is a game I should be playing. I haven’t touched it yet though, because I’ve been waiting for more episodes to release so I can binge on the craziness that only Pandora can provide. That time has now come. Episode 3, titled ‘Catch a Ride’, will be releasing on the week of June 23rd, and it means I can finally dive into the game myself.
If you’re not a fan of spoilers, avert your eyes from the following press release (via PC Gamer):
“After a dizzying escape from a very-near-almost-certain-death scenario (involving statuesque buttocks), Rhys and Fiona find themselves looking for another piece of the puzzle that will lead them to the untold riches of Vault key ownership. Lost in the mysterious jungle of an Atlas terraforming facility, Fiona finds help from an unexpected mentor, Rhys continues to share brain-space with the disembodied mind of a dead dictator, and love is in the air. Pursued by the ruthless criminal ‘Queenpin’ Vallory, and with very little help from Vaughn’s accountancy skills (or stellar abs), getting anywhere near the Vault will be entirely up to you.”
If you’re not a fan of pictures that may or may not contain spoilers, avert your eyes from the following screenshots too:
I’ve been wanting to play this game for far too long. Its first episode released way back in November last year! I can’t believe it has taken this long to reach the midpoint of the season. Hopefully we won’t have to wait till the end of the year to reach the conclusion.
Are you interested in playing Tales from the Borderlands? It just so happens to be on sale at the moment, with a 50% discount on Steam. I bought myself a copy last night as a matter of fact. Will you be doing the same?
