Since the formal announcement of New Tales from the Borderlands, we can’t complain about the lack of material about the game. After recently showing gameplay from it, Gearbox has now pushed a trailer at PAX West.
Said trailer is dedicated to the characters from “New Tales from the Borderlands”. The focus is on the newcomers and we get to know them better.
“New Tales from the Borderlands” immerses fans in a deep, original story full of unexpected twists and heartfelt emotions with classic Borderlands humor. Set in the perpetual war-torn metropolis of Promethea, players control the fates of three misfits whose world is in turmoil: the selfless scientist Anu, her ambitious and “refined” brother Octavio, and the boisterous, frogurt-throwing Fran. On this cinematic rollercoaster ride, they meet brutal chamber monsters and cold-hearted capitalists and their decisions determine what happens next: Every decision, whether big or small, can often surprisingly change the development of the story. And only by beating the game can you fully appreciate how drastically your choices can shape the Borderlands.
New Tales from the Borderlands is being developed by Gearbox Software – primarily Gearbox Quebec, a talented team with a long history of creating compelling Borderlands stories. Alumni of the Telltale Games story team have also assisted Gearbox Software in developing the story for New Tales from the Borderlands.
New Tales from the Borderlands is out October 21 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Switch and PC.
