A new Tales from the Borderlands game is coming this year

Gearbox and 2K Games will be releasing a new Tales from the Borderlands game sometime this year.

The original Tales from the Borderlands was an episodic adventure developed by Telltale Games and was met with a largely positive reception. However, the studio eventually shut down after a tumultuous period in 2018, but was purchased and revived as a brand by LCG Entertainment in 2019. The team is currently working on the recently announced Wolf Among Us 2, which is set to release in 2023.

Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford teased the fresh entry at the end of the Gearbox Main Theater Show at PAX East 2022, touching on what players can expect from the “interactive fiction” title later this year. Though few details were shared, he promised the game would see the introduction of entirely new characters and stories set within the Borderlands universe.

New adventure, new characters, new tales.

With so little information to go on, it’s hard to imagine what form the game will ultimately take, but Pitchford promises the game will receive a full reveal in a few months or so.

“We’ve been working on this experience secretly for many years,” he told the crowd. “And I can’t wait until it’s time to announce this all-new game this summer and show all of you what we’ve been doing.”

During the show, Gearbox also announced that Borderlands 3 players on PlayStation can finally join in the cross-platform fun. The company previously opened cross-platform play across all other devices in June of last year, making PlayStation the final piece of the full puzzle.

Microsoft just released the latest episode of the Official Xbox Podcast, and it contained lots of crucial details on the future of Xbox. Microsoft addressed everything from how many games it will make multiplatform to the arrival of Activision Blizzard games on Xbox Game Pass to future Xbox hardware.

If you don't want to listen to the full 23-minute podcast and want more details than what's shared in the Xbox Wire post about the discussion, here's a quick rundown of the biggest points made during the episode.
Four Xbox games are going multiplatform
To kick things off, Phil Spencer, CEO of Microsoft Gaming, addressed the multiplatform Xbox game rumors. "We made the decision that we’re going to take four games to the other consoles. Just four games, not a change to our kind of fundamental exclusive strategy,” he said. “We’re making these decisions for some specific reasons. We make every decision with the long-term health of Xbox in mind, and long-term health of Xbox means a growing platform, our games performing, building the best platform for creators, reaching as many players as we can."

Frostpunk 2 will come to PC Game Pass when it launches this year

11bit Studios confirmed that Frostpunk 2 will be released on PC sometime during the first half of 2024 and will be on Game Pass from day one alongside the first full gameplay reveal for the highly anticipated survival city-builder.

The new gameplay trailer for Frostpunk 2 is just over two minutes long and gives the public a first look at the game's city-managing mechanics. Frostpunk 2's gameplay significantly departs from its predecessor in some ways, as it's more focused on the macro management of a city that's survived an apocalypse rather than the micromanaging of resources for basic survival. After getting an extended hands-off look at Frostpunk 2 in action last year, I said it "scales its challenges and gameplay systems up while also holding on to the ethical dilemmas and emphasis on consequences that made the original so great (and depressing.)."
