Tales From The Borderlands Episode 4 Out Today

Tales from the Borderlands [official site] has a lot more heart than I’d expected, and a lot less Claptrap than I’d feared. It’s a pretty nice series, I’m saying. The adventures of our merry band of treasure-hunting misfits and grifters will continue today, as Episode 4 is due in a few hours. That screenshot up top isn’t too spoil-y – hey, it’s a snazzy statue – but the trailer that follows is a little, so be warned if you want the antics and japes to come fresh.

Here’s how Telltale describe the episode:

“In this penultimate episode of the season, captured by Vallory and her goons, Rhys and Fiona are forced to continue the search for the Vault beacon – at gunpoint. The beacon is on the Hyperion moon base – Helios – while our heroes are on Pandora… so there’s the pesky cold void of death known as ‘space’ to overcome. Even with assistance from a familiar face, and with a worryingly helpful Handsome Jack hitching a ride in Rhys’ head, getting on board the ominous ‘H’ is going to take every drop of guile, and quite possibly all the spunk you’ve got. Sacrifices will be made – can you make the tough choices needed to succeed?”

Tales from the Borderlands is on Windows and Mac.

    Butt Stallion ain’t no statue.
    He’s a real pony… made of diamonds!

    Okay, this one is really damn good. I was not hugely impressed with episodes 2 and 3, but this one was straight up great. The shootout sequence alone is worth the asking price.

    It’s also the episode that turns the series from a fun little story paralel to the main games into something that directly affects the main continuity, the consequences of which I’m curious to see (particularly people’s reactions to it)

    I am madly in love with this series, and it’s probably Telltale’s best – certainly of their current format. Which is especially crazy because I don’t think ANYBODY expected it to be good. Walking Dead? Fables? Game of Thrones? These are all licenses with strongly dramatic premises and plenty of scope for the sort of agonizing split-second decisions and fraught relationships that have made their recent games successful. Whereas Borderlands is a franchise that has been characterized by silly jokes interspersed between shooting an elaborate arsenal of randomly generated guns. And yet…
