Lots of new information about the new Stories from the Borderlands. The game is being developed by Gearbox and should be released before the end of 2022. Beware, there will be spoilers ahead!
The events of the new game will take place on the planet Pandora. There are three main characters: the scientist Anu, her brother Octavio and Fran, the owner of a frozen yogurt shop. Anu tries to activate a particular healing crystal, but her plans are thwarted by companies that want to get their hands on the item as well.
Just like in the original Telltale adventure game, the whole action is based on QTE episodes, where you have to press the right buttons quickly. Players will take turns managing three characters, interacting and making decisions that can influence the development of the plot. Humans, robots and mutants are declared opponents.
The sequel has already been rated 18+ in Singapore. The agency noted numerous swear words and several violent scenes. Here are some:
- A man stabs a woman in the neck or top of the head with a knife;
- The woman freezes the man and breaks him into pieces. A severed limb and head appear in the frame;
- There are scenes where characters die from being shot in the chest or head;
- A woman with a severed leg is mentioned, and an episode where a character tries to reattach a severed head to a corpse with a metal bar.
Remember the release will be in April Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is a spin-off of the Borderlands series dedicated to Tiny Tina. Read our review here. Remember the game about a squirrel using a human gun? So she got a Steam page, more gameplay and a name – Squirrel with a Gun.
