Telltale, Gearbox team up for Tales from the Borderlands


5:30 PM on 12.07.2013



For the first reveal of this year's VGX, a Telltale logo showed up on a vending machine, with very Telltale-esque cel-shading. Not so Telltale was the music, which was clearly a Borderlands guitar riff. Yep, Telltale is making an adventure game set in the Borderlands universe.

Considering the great work that Telltale has done recently with The Walking Dead and A Wolf Among Us, this could turn out to be a pretty fitting collaboration. The goofy, brutal world of Pandora could be a great fit for an adventure game.

In the reveal trailer, two new characters were shown, but all we know about them is that they are not Vault Hunters like the typical Borderlands protagonists. That, and that Handsome Jack wants to kill them, of course.
