BEACON TRANSCRIPT – Are you, by chance, looking for something new and refreshing to play? Well, if you’re out of ideas, then check out Tales from the Borderlands, a brand new approach in gaming, based on the ever popular Borderlands Universe. Tales from the Borderlands will become available on physical disk starting with the 21st of April.
Gameplay-wise, Borderlands was one of the most uncanny computer games anyone could play. Besides the goofy-looking characters and the cartoonish feel the game gave your, Borderlands reminds us of yet another game called XIII. The only major difference between the two games is that the first is a parody made after the James Bond series and other spy games, and the second one, well it’s only cartoonish.
To tell the truth, there’s a reason why 2K opted to use the cartoon-like graphical engine in order to bring Pandora to like: low-end computers. Indeed, no one could complain that their rigs didn’t meet the minimum requirements. Still, apart from the obvious functional reason, the whole drawing system adds to the otherworldly feeling you get from the game itself.
A mysterious planet, with rules of its own, downtrodden characters set on braving the wild in order to win his fame and fortune, shady characters like the doctor you encountered at the beginning of Borderlands 1, and not to mention Hyperion’s President, who’s name reminds us of the president of the United States in Idiocracy.
Seems like the fans like the funky Borderland Universe so much, that 2K decided to make a spin-off of it. And so, we arrive at the moment when Tales from the Borderlands: A Telltale Game was released.
Some of the fans expected another RPG/shooting game, just like Borderlands 1 and Borderlands 2. But the developers had a surprise in store for us. Instead of continuing the saga, in the same manner, 2K decided to radically transform the game mechanics of the popular game. And so, Tales from the Borderlands became a point-and-click action/adventure game.
According to 2K Games, Tales from the Borderlands picks up the plot from where it was left in Borderlands. With Handsome Jack dead by a vault hunter, a new generation of vault raiders discover that there are in fact countless other vaults out there in the Universe, but they need keys in order to unlock them.
Tales from the Borderlands will become available on physical disk, according to 2K games. Moreover, the game will also be available for PS3, PS4, PC and X-Box One. Now, the disk will be launched on the 26th of April in North America. Furthermore, Tales from the Borderlands will arrive much sooner in Australia and New Zeeland, more specifically on the 21st of April. As for Europe, 2K announced that the disk will be launched on the 22nd of April.
