Tales from Tales from the Borderlands from SXSW

More details on the Telltale and Gearbox mashup

Telltale and Gearbox are talking Tales from the Borderlands at their SXSW panel. From the alcohol fueled conception (just like most of us) to talking protagonists, this lengthy chat has it all. Which is good because the episodic adventure is coming out this year.

You'll play as the two characters shown off in the reveal trailer, con artist Fiona and Hyperion man/Handsome Jack-alike Rhys. Because both characters are recalling Tales from the Borderlands in alternating flashbacks, you'll quickly find both narrators to be unreliable.

"You never really play what actually happened, you're playing this Big Fish version of what happened," Telltale's Kevin Bruner explained. Telltale's Harrison Pink explained that, like The Walking Dead, you're constantly choosing between awful options in Pandora's amoral frontier. The team is trying to preserve Borderlands' sense of action -- just in a Telltale way, probably more punctuated. Similarly, Telltale is able to go back to its comedic roots, which The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us were lighter on than Borderlands' zany world.

I'm behind on season 2 of The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us, so I'll likely be playing sporadic catch up up until Tales from the Borderlands' release, but I'm still fairly excited for it, even if I never finished Borderlands 2.
