This morning, Telltales Games shared the first batch of screenshots for Tales from the Borderlands, a downloadable episodic title set in the world of Gearbox Software's Borderlands universe set to launch later this summer.
Tales takes place after the events of 2012 role-playing shooter Borderlands 2 and stars two new characters: the con-artist Fiona, born on Pandora and out to make the "grift of a lifetime," and data-miner Rhys, who works for weapons manufacturer Hyperion and is out on a mission to serve his own greedy needs.
The game will follow these two characters across Pandora as they seek to fulfill their own ambitions and encounter some familiar and new Borderlands faces along the way — including Zero the assassin, a playable character from Borderlands 2. The story will be told from both Fiona and Rhys' perspectives, which will change as the story unfolds.
Tales from the Borderlands is in development as part of a partnership with Gearbox and publisher 2K Games, and the story will be considered official Borderlands canon.
