The second episode Tales from the Borderlands, Telltale Games and Gearbox Software’s episodic adventure set in the world of Borderlands, arrives the week of March 17, as was revealed during Gearbox’s PAX East 2015 panel.
The episode, titled Atlas Mugged, picks up where we left our antiheroes Rhys and Fiona, hunting down a vault on Pandora. Borderlands mainstay Handsome Jack features more prominently in the events of episode two. Also, just as the ninja Zer0 from Borderlands 2 made an appearance in the previous episode, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel‘s shield-wielding Athena shows up in Atlas, according to the new teaser trailer.
Tales from the Borderlands fuses Telltale’s story-driven gameplay with the humorous characters and world-building of Gearbox’s Borderlands franchise. Rhys, a low-level Hyperion employee, finds himself in a tentative partnership with Fiona, a hustler from the Pandoran surface. Together they are on a quest to make their fortune by finding one of Pandora’s famous vaults.
