Telltale Games has revealed the first screenshots for Tales From the Borderlands, offering a first glimpse at The Walking Dead and Wolf Among Us developer's take on Pandora and the dark stories therein. Familiar faces include the likes of Zer0, while Handsome Jack, Angel, Moxxi, Tiny Tina, and of course, Claptrap may also feature in the ful game.
"Gearbox’s world is huge. The main Borderlands games and the DLC have only scratched the surface; they’ve built a world that rivals Star Wars in its richness," writes Telltale's Adam Sorasohn on the PS Blog. "That sounds like crazy hyperbole, but the details, the characters, and the history are all there. You just haven’t seen it all yet."
Obviously shooting will take a backseat in Tales From the Borderlands, but anything you loot during the game's narrative will be available for use in "other areas of the Borderlands franchise". Like Telltale's other recent output, the onus will be on an episodic story, with tough choices that shape the course of the narrative. The game plays out after the events of Borderlands 2, from the two different viewpoints of Hyperion employee Rhys and fast-talking con artist Fiona.
"They both have a very different opinion of the events that brought them together, and the only way to find out something near to the truth is to live their lives and make your own decisions," says Sorasohn.
Tales From the Borderlands will be coming soon to the Xbox Live Arcade for Xbox 360. Take a look at the new screenshots below.
