SXSW Tales from the Borderlands Panel 2014

The SXSW Gaming Expo has been a great experience! Yesterday, I was able to attend the Tales from the Borderlands panel. TellTale Games and Gearbox Software were going to be discussing things to expect from the game... We really didn't get a lot of information as we wanted - They were really "hush hush" about a lot of things. But we did get to see an exclusive game image and learned more about the characters in the game. I was able to record the whole panel! Check it out. Highlights We Learned / What to Expect
  • Main characters are: Rhys & Fiona
  • Rhys is part of Hyperion. He is NOT an android. Rhys and Handsome Jack have a special relationship - But we didn't get more information on that just yet. He is NOT related to Handsome Jack. He is NOT a Vault Hunter. He has powers to control Hyperion robots. He has a robotic arm.
  • Fiona is a con-woman. Very manipulative. Will try to convince you about being wrong / being right then take off. She does what she needs to do to survive (Who doesn't in Pandora?)
  • We WILL run into Handsome Jack sometime in the game.
  • We WILL run into some Vault Hunters.
  • Psychos will be appearing.
  • It just wouldn't be the Borderlands experience without Claptrap! We will have our tiny robotic friend in the game.
  • Game is NOT co-op.
  • Game will be released later this year.
  • We DO NOT know how many episodes there will be yet.
  • **Be sure to watch the full panel video for more highlights!**
