Tales From the Borderlands Out Now on Consoles and PC
We’re thrilled to announce that award-winning adventure game Tales from the Borderlands® has officially returned to digital storefronts. The re-release version, which consolidates all five original episodes into a single package, is now available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store. You can also play the game on your Xbox Series X|S or PlayStation 5 via backwards compatibility.
Originally released as a series of five episodes between November 2014 and October 2015, Tales from the Borderlands is a choice-driven narrative adventure game that takes place between the events of Borderlands 2 and Borderlands 3. Experience this beloved story from the perspectives of two protagonists, thrown together in an unlikely partnership as they try to recover a mountain of money that each believes is theirs.
Fiona is a full-time con-artist who has been scheming to make a fortune selling a fake Vault Key. Rhys—who you might know from Borderlands 3 as the Atlas Corporation CEO—is an ambitious Hyperion employee who idolizes the recently deceased Handsome Jack and is in the market for a Vault Key. The deal they strike goes bad in ways that could only happen in the Borderlands, wreaking all kinds of mayhem. How the rest of the story plays out is up to you, as you make choices during explosive action scenes and conversations with familiar characters like Moxxi, Zer0, Marcus, and Claptrap.
Tales from the Borderlands is a crucial chapter in Borderlands canon, so if you haven’t yet experienced its chaotic, emotional journey, now’s the perfect time. This re-release includes all five of the original episodes in one package:
- Episode 1 – Zer0 Sum
- Episode 2 – Atlas Mugged
- Episode 3 – Catch a Ride
- Episode 4 – Escape Plan Bravo
- Episode 5 – The Vault of the Traveler
Though you won’t be able to purchase episodes individually, you also won’t need to wait for each subsequent episode to release, and if you have an existing save file, you can pick up where you left off on the same platform. Note that cross-generation save transfers within the same console family are supported for the new Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 consoles.
Whether you’re new to Tales from the Borderlands or simply want to reacquaint yourself with Rhys and Fiona to take care of some unfinished business, we hope you enjoy your time with this unforgettable adventure.
And in case you missed it, the latest episode of The Borderlands Show was packed with exciting updates and announcements for Borderlands 3, including news on the upcoming Director’s Cut* add-on, the ongoing Broken Hearts Day seasonal event, and the brand new Disciples of the Vault premium cosmetic packs coming soon to Season Pass 2*.
