Telltale Games’ take on the Borderlands universe, Tales from the Borderlands, will be making its way back to digital storefronts on Feb. 17, after being removed as a result of the company’s shutdown.
Tales from the Borderlands has always been a bit of a black sheep for the Borderland franchise. It’s the only mainline game not made by Gearbox and that does not feature first-person shooter gameplay mechanics, instead it is an episodic point and click adventure game made by Telltale, the creators of The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us.
Unfortunately for Tales from the Borderlands, the game was removed from digital storefronts following the developer’s closure. The game will be making its return to digital storefronts for the first time since Telltale went under in October, 2018, and will be available for purchase on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
The announcement was made during today’s The Borderlands Show, with a tweet from the official Borderlands Twitter account quickly following.

“Tales from the Borderlands returns to storefronts February 17! Set between Borderlands 2 and 3, Tales from the Borderlands follows the stories of Rhys, a Hyperion suit, and Fiona, a con artist, on a quest borne of greed but destined for greatness.”
All five episodes will be available for purchase in one package –essentially offering the same deal as it did before the company shutdown, with one change. The original game offered a “choice comparison” screen at the end of each episode, allowing players to compare their decisions with those made by other players. This feature will not be returning in the game’s re-release, but it hasn’t been stated as to why the change is necessary.
The latest episode of The Borderlands Show also announced that the Borderlands 3 Designer’s Cut update is coming on March 18, and will feature a new raid boss.
