Tales from the Borderlands is getting a re-release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One


It's among Telltale's best adventures

We were just talking about the prospect of Tales from the Borderlands making a resurgence in 2021, and hey, it's happening – kind of. After being unavailable on digital stores, Telltale's super-funny adventure game is returning to PC (Steam and the Epic Store), PS4, and Xbox One on February 17, 2021.

I know people who consider this the best of the best for Telltale, and I also know people who loved Tales from the Borderlands despite not caring for – or in some cases not even playing – the main series. I'm somewhere in the former camp depending on the day. It's certainly at or near the top of my list.

The original version was released episodically (remember when adventure fans had to constantly keep tabs on content schedules that may or may not spiral out of control?), but this time, all five "episodes" will be packaged together. There won't be an option to buy them one-by-one. It's all or nothing.

According to the developers, if you have an old save file, "you can pick up where you left off on the same platform." There's also PS5 and Xbox Series X/S support via backward compatibility, as you'd expect.

This isn't the Redux release I was hoping to see, but it's good to have this game open to new players. It would be interesting to go from Borderlands 3 back to Tales from the Borderlands given Rhys' trajectory.
