Today we can share the final trailer for the critically-acclaimed ‘Tales from the Borderlands’ series, as it reaches it’s season finale conclusion starting this Tuesday October 20th on PC/Mac, PS4 and PS3; October 21st for Xbox One and Xbox 360; and on October 22nd on iOS and Android-based devices.
Set on the unforgiving world of Pandora after the events seen in Borderlands 2, Tales from the Borderlands is a five part episodic game series full of Borderlands’ trademark humor following two adventurers on their quest for greatness.
In the final episode of the season, The Vault of the Traveler, all hell breaks loose. Jack is now in control of Helios’ systems, and he’s ready to reclaim his rightful place as king of Hyperion (with or without you). It’s a mad dash to get out of the chaotic space station alive, as everyone scrambles to grab the final Gortys piece and high tail it back to Pandora. Can you guide our ragtag team through perilous corporate dangers in hopes of getting some sweet alien riches? Loyalties will be tested, secrets will be revealed, and explosions will be in large supply in this climactic chapter of Tales From The Borderlands.
