Fans of the Borderlands series are being treated to a special sequel of 2014’s Tales from the Borderlands, developed by Telltale Games and published by 2K. Like the narrative-driven game that came before it, New Tales from the Borderlands will follow the story of 3 down-on-their-luck vault-hunters, Anu, Octavio, and Fran. Though the game has “Borderlands” in the name, it’s not from the same publishers (Gearbox Software) as the base game. This leads many to ask, “Is New Tales from the Borderlands a Sequel?“
Is New Tales from the Borderlands a Sequel?
New Tales from the Borderlands is a sequel to the 2014 Tales from the Borderlands, which is a spin-off to the original Borderlands games. Unlike the Borderlands base games, New Tales from the Borderlands is a narrative-driven game, not an FPS.
How Does New Tales from the Borderlands Work?
One of the biggest differences between New Tales from the Borderlands and other entries in the Borderlands series is the way that the game is played. New Tales from the Borderlands is an interactive narrative adventure, which is much different from the usual looter-shooter aspect of other Borderlands titles.
Instead of mowing through hordes of enemies and finding crazy amounts of loot, players will need to explore the areas, have conversations, and make tough choices. The choices that players will make will have a deep impact on how the story pans out as they progress through all 5 chapters of the game and save the world.
When is New Tales from the Borderlands Releasing?
New Tales from the Borderlands is scheduled to release on October 21, 2022. Players who want to find out what happens in this exciting sequel can pick it up on PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 5, and the Nintendo Switch.
Those who pre-order the game before its release will receive a special bonus of the Adventure Capital Pack, which gives gamers some new skins and a bit of in-game currency to spend on their adventure. Fans can purchase the game on the official New Tales from the Borderlands website.
