Tales from the Borderlands is a five-part episodic game of choice and consequence developed by Telltale, the acclaimed studio behind the similarly episodic Walking Dead: The Game and The Wolf Among Us.
An extension of 2K and Gearbox’s Borderlands 2, the new game is set on the world of Pandora, where two adventurers set out on a quest for greatness (and money). As noted by Telltale:
You’ll play as Rhys, a Hyperion ‘suit’ with dreams of being the next Handsome Jack, and Fiona, a Pandoran con artist looking to score her biggest ever swindle. Thrown together as unwilling partners in an adventure to recover cash they both think is theirs, their journey will take you on a wild ride where gangsters, bandit lords, and Vault Hunters are just some of the obstacles you’ll encounter, in this new take on the award-winning universe created by Gearbox Software.

The game features a voice cast that includes Troy Baker as Rhys and Laura Bailey as Fiona, with additional voices by Chris Hardwick, Erin Yvette, Patrick Warburton, Nolan North, and Dameon Clarke.
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 7.0 or later, Tales from the Borderlands is available now on the App Store for $4.99, with the first episode already unlocked. Succeeding episodes are expected to be released in the game over the coming months via in-app purchase for $4.99 each.
