Tales from the Borderlands gets a trailer: RELEASE IS IMMINENT

Telltale has been fairly tight-lipped about Tales from the Borderlands, but since they released a trailer for it today, that can only mean that the release date is right around the corner. It’s narrated by Dameon Clarke reprising his role as Handsome Jack, and starts out by laying out the Borderlands timeline before giving us a glimpse at the game’s story. The first episode is titled “Zer0 Sum” so you can probably guess who makes an appearance… That’s right, it’s Patrick Warburton!

In addition to giving us an idea of what’s motivating our two protagonists, Telltale has release a short cast list of the voice actors in the first episode. Most importantly, the protagonists, Rhys the cyborg Hyperion suit, and Fiona the Pandoran con artist, will be voiced by Troy Baker and Laura Bailey. As I said earlier, Dameon Clarke will be Handsome Jack once again, Patrick Warburton will be Vasquez (who appears to be Rhys’ boss, or some kind of higher-up on the Hyperion ladder), Chris Hardwick will be Vaughn, and Erin Yvette will voice Sasha (who I’m willing to bet is not a chain gun.)

Tales from the Borderlands will be a five-episode series that takes place after the events of Borderlands 2. Once it release, each episode will be available on the PSN, Xbox Games Store, Steam, and the Telltale Online Store. Weirdly enough, it seems as though the pricing for the series is going to be different across platforms. You’ll be able to pick up each episode on the PSN for $4.99 each, or you can get the Season Pass for $19.99. On the Xbox Games Store, you’ll also be able to get the episodes for $4.99 a pop, and you can upgrade to the Season Pass (which includes episodes 2-5) for an additional $14.99. And finally, if you’re playing it on PC or Mac, you can get the Season Pass for $24.99. Also, you’ll be able to play TftB on iOS and Android devices by the end of 2014, but no word on the pricing for those yet.

It looks like the console pricing is comparable- outside of how it’s packaged. But I don’t understand why the PC/Mac version only comes as the Season Pass, or why it’s five dollars more. Hopefully Telltale will either adjust this or shed some light on their reasoning in the future.
