Telltale Games have teamed up with Gearbox to bring an episodic story-game series based on the Borderlands universe due out this summer.

Telltale’s take on the Borderlands games starts after the events of Borderlands 2. The story is told through the somewhat unreliable viewpoints of two characters: Rhys, a Hyperion Company man with burgeoning ambitions and Fiona, a con artist born and raised on Pandora.

Follow Rhys and Fiona on their travels through Pandora and meet a cast of Borderlands characters, some new and some more familiar including the vault hunter ZerO and possibly even Handsome Jack although he’s dead isn’t he?

Tales from the Borderlands will be delving into Borderland's dark humour and expansive game world. Writing on the PlayStation blog Telltale producer Adam Sarasohn says, “Gearbox’s world is huge. The main Borderlands games and the DLC have only scratched the surface; they’ve built a world that rivals Star Wars in its richness. That sounds like crazy hyperbole, but the details, the characters, and the history are all there. You just haven’t seen it all yet.Pandora has a wealth of stories to offer, and Gearbox wants them told. Telltale is going to collaborate with you through the choices that you make to get some of those stories out there, and to create a brand new Borderlands experience”

Telltale are also promising plenty of loot and any loot you grab on Tales will be available to use across the Borderlands franchise.

Along with the announcement have come the first set of game screens.
