The game follows the episodic format that Telltale used for titles such as The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us, where player choices and actions have significant effects on later story elements.

The adventure takes place in the Borderlands universe, primarily on the planet Pandora where long-standing fables of a Vault containing vast treasures on Pandora has drawn numerous “Vault Hunters” to the planet, as well as giant corporate empires, the likes of the Hyperion corporation, who maintain military-like control of the planet from an orbiting base.

The game takes place after Borderlands 2 following the death of memorable antagonist Handsome Jack, who has been killed by the last set of Vault Hunters, which lead to the discovery of numerous other Vaults scattered around the galaxy.

Meeting new friends in the series is great and nobody can pull on both your funny bone and your emotions just like TellTale does.,Combine these charismatic characters with meaningful choices and the result in greater than the sum of its two parts.

You’ll play as Rhys, a Hyperion ‘suit’ with dreams of being the next Handsome Jack, and Fiona, a Pandoran con artist looking to score her biggest ever swindle. Thrown together as unwilling partners in an adventure to recover cash they both think is theirs, their journey will take you on a wild ride where gangsters, bandit lords, and Vault Hunters are just some of the obstacles you’ll encounter, in this new take on the award-winning universe created by Gearbox Software.
