Was delisted in 2019 following studio’s death.
Telltale Games’ fantastic Tales from the Borderlands, a deliriously daft narrative experience motivated by Gearbox’s popular series of first-person shooters, will lastly go back to digital stores next Wednesday, 17th February, following its delisting in the middle of 2019.
Tales from the Borderlands initially launched in 2014, and, for my cash a minimum of, is quickly the very best thing Telltale ever made. It smoothes off the mainline Borderlands series’ more abrasive edges to provide a really amusing, and remarkably touching, five-episode experience concentrating on Hyperion staff member Rhys (played by Troy Baker) and Pandoran con-artist Fiona (Fiona Bailey) as they try to find and open a Vault.
It follows Telltales’ normal cinematic narrative experience formula, however accomplishes on almost every front, with bags of design and wit, a remarkably gripping plot, a profoundly likeable cast of characters, dazzling set-pieces, and, oh yes, not one however 5 of the most joyously unforgettable introduction series ever devoted to computer game.
Unfortunately, Tales from the Borderlands suffered a comparable fate to many other Telltale titles and was eliminated from sale following the studio’s closure in 2018.
However, Gearbox has now announced it’ll be republishing all 5 episodes in a single bundle from 17th February, with the only modification being the elimination of the video game’s gamer option contrast screens included at the end of each episode.
Despite its self-evident quality, Tales from the Borderlands didn’t generate the sort of sales Telltale management was wishing for on its initial release. As an outcome, the series was really almost canned at the midway point – and was just ended up after its enthusiastic advancement group persuaded studio heads to let them conclude production with a skeleton team who remained additional hours as a voluntary option.
Tales from the Borderlands’ go back to PlayStation, Xbox, and PC next week lastly offers the video game another possibility at success – and who understands, maybe one day we may even see Rhys and Fiona reunite for a 2nd, excitedly waited for experience.
