Gearbox has served up an extended gameplay video for New Tales From the Borderlands, offering a closer look at the upcoming narrative-driven, choice-based adventure sequel, set within the Borderlands universe. There's also a new character trailer, with insights into the new cast of “three lovable losers” you'll play as.

There's Anuradha Dahr (Anu), who, while uncomfortable in social situations, is a dab hand at solving problems, able to see complex mathematical formulae using her Tech Glasses, and dreams of a world where no one needs to kill to get ahead. She'll be joined by her adopted brother Octavio Wallace Dahr, a brash character who claims to be Meridian City's most popular citizen.

Despite his boasting, Octavio does have a long list of contacts to take advantage of, and, as such, is able to access information with ease. Octavio longs to own a business and make bundles of cash. Fran Miscowicz rounds out the trio, as she seeks revenge upon the Maliwan company, who destroyed her frogurt shop with a laser. From her gadget-packed hover chair, she can protect her friends, as she seeks to secure the insurance payout she's owed.

You can find out more in the character trailer, while the new gameplay showcases the cinematic adventure Gearbox is creating with key members of the original Telltale Games team. In New Tales from the Borderlands, your choices will impact the course of the story, while succeeding or failing QTEs will also have a noticeable effect on how things pan out.

Performance capture and facial mapping tech will also be employed for the new game, for “vastly improved” movement and facial animations. New Tales From the Borderlands will be coming to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC on 21st October, with pre-orders getting the ‘Adventure Capital Pack’ with cosmetic items for Anu, Octavio, and Fran, as well as 10,000 in-game currency, and an in-game Fl4K Vaultlander collectible.
