The third episode of Telltale’s Tales From the Borderlands [official site] is now out, and would you believe the ragtag group of grifters are in trouble again? I don’t know how much more I can say without spoiling things – I ummed and erred for a while over even the screenshot to use in the header image – but I can tell you it’s out today, and that a trailer and a description follow below.
I can also say that I’ve been surprised by how much I’ve enjoyed Tales From the Borderlands so far, given how boring I find the Gearbox first-person shooters they’re based on.
As ever, episode 3 is included with your season pass and on Steam, at least, should be downloading itself. If you have it on GOG, hey, I’m sure what you know what to do. Here’s what Telltale have to say about the episode titled ‘Catch a Ride’:
“After a dizzying escape from a very-near-almost-certain-death scenario (involving statuesque buttocks), Rhys and Fiona find themselves looking for another piece of the puzzle that will lead them to the untold riches of Vault key ownership. Lost in the mysterious jungle of an Atlas terraforming facility, Fiona finds help from an unexpected mentor, Rhys continues to share brain-space with the disembodied mind of a dead dictator, and love is in the air. Pursued by the ruthless criminal ‘Queenpin’ Vallory, and with very little help from Vaughn’s accountancy skills (or stellar abs), getting anywhere near the Vault will be entirely up to you.”
And here’s the trailer:
