Well, this came out of nowhere.
TellTale Games, best known for their impressive Walking Dead episodic games and the recently released Wolf Among Us, are teaming up with Gearbox to create an episodic series based on Borderlands, featuring everyone’s favorite douchebag, Handsome Jack.
The announcement trailer doesn’t reveal too much about what we can expect, but presumably it’ll be a mix of Borderlands zany humour and TellTales penchant for a good story and decision making.
According the to trailer the first episode will arrive some time in 2014. Apparently it’ll arrive on “next-gen” platforms, although considering that the Xbox One, Playstation 4 and Wii U are technically all now current-gen I assume that means we’re getting another generation of new consoles next year. Hurrah!
So…I’m not the only one a bit surprise by this, right? Claptrap better be in it.
