Overview

Rhys and Fiona, the game's main protagonists.

Tales from the Borderlands is a five-part sci-fi adventure game currently in development by Telltale (with assistance from Gearbox) for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and Mac. Episodes will be periodically released as downloadables by 2K after November 25, 2014.

Set in the same universe as the Borderlands series of first-person shooters (and set shortly after the events of Borderlands 2), players control two protagonists separately: Rhys (an ambitious employee of the antagonistic Hyperion corporation trying to get back at his new boss, rival Hugo Vasquez, with his friend Vaughn) and Fiona (an infamous con artist planning a major heist with her sister Sasha). When both are captured by a mysterious stranger somewhere in Pandora, they must re-tell how they reluctantly grouped up and tried to get rich in the hostile world.

The fourth of Telltale's "tailored story" set of games (made famous by The Walking Dead), the bulk of this adventure game relies on making decisions through actions and timed conversation trees, complete with branching consequences that tailor the player's story to the choices they make. Unlike the previous games, these are not moral choices and Players also engage in action sequences (using a series of quick time events). Both protagonists have their own unique feature during gameplay: Rhys can scan objects with his electronic eye while Fiona can collect and use loot to her advantage.
