Tales From the Borderlands video goes behind-the-scenes with Gearbox

The other half of Telltale's Tales From the Borderlands equation is property owner Gearbox Software. Today, they talk about what they're looking to bring to Telltale's next adventure.


Telltale is preparing to release their story-based look into the Borderlands universe with Tales From the Borderlands. Of course, this is a decidedly different take on what's primarily been a first-person shooter, so how did Gearbox bring Telltale aboard for this adventure game spin?

A new behind-the-scenes video explains just that, speaking to various Gearbox developers about how the collaboration with Telltale came about, starting with Claptrap's role in Telltale's Poker Night 2. They also discuss how they're mixing together Borderlands' proponent for grabbing the biggest gun available with Telltale's penchant for consequence-based dialogue and decision-making.

Check out the full video below and watch to the end to see Gearbox tease something about a certain character that appeared in the original trailer. Tales From the Borderlands is coming soon to PC, Mac, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, iOS, and Android.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
