Telltale Games' Tales from the Borderlands will allow players to use the loot they grab in other Borderlands games, according to a post on the PlayStation Blog by producer Adam Sarasohn.
According to Sarasohn, the loot players collect in the epsodic downloadable series will be "available to use in other areas of the Borderlands franchise." Additional, like with Telltale's The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us, the choices players make will affect the storyline for their own personal game.
Each episode of Tales from the Borderlands will cost $4.99 each, and there will be a season pass available to purchase all episodes at once.
Earlier today — in addition to the game's first screenshots — Telltale revealed that players will control both protagonists Fiona and Rhys as they relive the events that brought the two of them together. Both characters have their own version of what happened, so players will walk through both characters' versions of the story as they play.
"Pandora has a wealth of stories to offer, and Gearbox wants them told," Sarasohn wrote. "Telltale is going to collaborate with you through the choices that you make to get some of those stories out there, and to create a brand new Borderlands experience. If you play Borderlands simply for the sake of shooting stuff, then you might not be a fan of Tales, but if you enjoy being on Pandora, hanging out with and finding out more about all of the amazing characters, and/or you’ve enjoyed what we did in The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us, then this might be a game series for you."
Tales from the Borderlands is slated to launch as a downloadable series later this summer.
