New Tales From The Borderlands: character reveal and 18 minutes of gameplay [VIDEO]

Gearbox Software has hired several former Telltale Games narrative team members to ensure that the spiritual sequel to Tales from the Borderlands truly lives up to its name.

 

The overview says, “In the newly revealed gameplay footage, fans get their first taste of the deep, raucous cinematic adventure where the ruthless corporations of the Borderlands, powerful universe-changing Vault technology and three ordinary citizens collide. Every choice can impact how your story unfolds, often in unexpected ways. Only by playing through the game will you fully understand how your decisions can change the Borderlands; Succeeding at or failing QTEs has a tangible impact on your adventure, sometimes leading to a premature conclusion and other times shaping your story in unexpected ways. In addition to stunning environments, New Tales from the Borderlands utilizes vastly improved movement and facial animations, using performance capture and facial mapping technology for the first time in a Borderlands title.

For those looking to learn more about the protagonists of New Tales from the Borderlands, look no further than the new character trailer featuring the altruistic scientist Anu, her ambitious, “streetwise” brother Octavio, and the fierce, frogurt-slinging Fran. Anuradha Dahr – Although Anuradha (Anu) might be uncomfortable in social settings, she has no problem-solving problems! Anu can see complex calculus and probabilities and solve puzzles with her Tech Glasses. This do-gooder dreams of a world where no one has to kill to get ahead. Octavio Wallace Dahr – Anu’s adopted brother, Octavio, can be a bit full of himself. According to him, he is Meridian City’s most famous citizen with a long list of contacts to back it up. His ability to access information is like no other! Octavio’s big break hasn’t come yet, but he desperately wants to own a business and make loads of cash. Fran Miscowicz – Fran brings all the action from her gadget-packed hover chair. Fran’s frogurt shop was hit by a Maliwan laser and now is out for vengeance on the people that destroyed her shop. She’ll stop at nothing to protect her friends along the way and hopefully receive the much-owed insurance payout, or the insurance company will have to deal with her directly.”

New Tales from the Borderlands (which we heard about before the Gamescom announcement, as it leaked along with Dead Island 2…) will be released on October 21 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC (Steam, Epic Games Store, with Denuvo because they can’t get away from the plague), PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
