If, like me, you cannot get enough of Gearbox Software’s darkly humoured overkill FPSRPG Borderlands, the announcement from Telltale Games that they are releasing an episodic series of side stories from Pandora will have been met with excitement (and the hope that it can live up to quality of the main series).

The series is fully titled Tales from the Borderlands: A Telltale Games Series and follows the adventures of some wannabe Vault Hunters. The announcement trailer (linked above) shows the familiar art style as two characters visit Marcus’s shop in Sanctuary, before a virtual Handsome Jack encourages involvement (“So many people are going to die!” he happily says to himself).

The games will be coming to PC, Mac, mobile devices and unspecified “home consoles”, but other than the promise of spending more time on Pandora little else has been announced so far.


Peter can be described as an old, hairy gamer, a survivor of the console wars of the 1990s, and a part-time MMO addict. He has an especial fondness for retro gaming and observing the progressions in long running gaming series. When scandalously not caught gaming, he can also be found reading comics and fantasy fiction, or practising terrible photography.
