About this game

Developer: Telltale Games

Set on the unforgiving world of Pandora after the events seen in Borderlands 2, this is a story full of Borderlands’ trademark humor. You will 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 will encounter.

Tales from the Borderlands is very much the typical Telltale tale — its episodic adventure promises twists, turns, and plenty of decisions that will make an impact on the remainder of the season, be it who lives or dies, how a story’s outcome might play out, and far more. But, even more so, Tales proves that Telltale and Gearbox are a match made in heaven, as “Zer0 Sum” shows there’s far more to Borderlands than shooting and looting with a great story and fun, wacky characters.

Even if this were not your favorite genre or the Borderlands setting lacks appeal to your personal taste I would recommend this first episode as an introduction to Telltale titles. This episode unequivocally set a new standard for narrative pacing in a Telltale game and should act as a litmus test for whether outsiders would want to play games from this developer. This may not be the role-playing game some gamers expect from every new title but it is one of the strongest Telltale games to date.

Any of Tales from the Borderlands Episode 1: Zer0 Sum’s minor setbacks feel like nothing when put up against the strength of the characters, the caliber of the writing, and the charm of the world. With only a brief introduction to Rhys and Fiona, they have already become a pair of my favorite Telltale characters, and the fantastic final scene of the Zer0 Sum has be anxiously awaiting my return trip to Pandora.
