The original Tales From The Borderlands game was released way back in November 2014 and was a five-episode-long interactive adventure that was a huge hit with many of the members of the Borderlands community. Set on Pandora, it followed the story of characters, Fiona and Rhys, in an engaging narrative that many fans on social media are hoping will continue into the new game. It seems, however, that the new Tales From The Borderlands game may tell a brand new story altogether.
The New Tales of the Borderland is set to release on October 22 for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC. Are you excited about the upcoming sequel?
