Today we can confirm release dates for Tales from the Borderlands: A Telltale Games Series Episode 4 - 'Escape Plan Bravo'... it will be out next week! In the meantime, we've also got a few all-new screenshots from the episode to give you a little peek at what our unlikely heroes are up against.

  • Tues, August 18th - PC/Mac, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3
  • Wed, August 19th - Xbox One, Xbox 360
  • Thurs, August 20th - iOS, Android

In this penultimate episode of the season, captured by Vallory and her goons, Rhys and Fiona are forced to continue the search for the Vault beacon - at gunpoint. The beacon is on the Hyperion moon base - Helios - while our heroes are on Pandora... so there's the pesky cold void of death known as 'space' to overcome. Even with assistance from a familiar face, and with a worryingly helpful Handsome Jack hitching a ride in Rhys' head, getting on board the ominous 'H' is going to take every drop of guile, and quite possibly all the spunk you've got.

There is ONE last thing we can tell you about this episode... sacrifices will need to be made. Can you make the tough choices required to succeed? Join in with the Tales from the Borderlands community speculation!

In King's Landing, Mira's activities at Tommen's coronation have not escaped the attention of Margaery Tyrell, and Cersei has realized that the handmaiden may prove useful in her political games. Finally, beyond the Wall, Gared's unlikely allies are reluctant to help in the search for the North Grove... but this far into the frozen wilds, Crows and Free Folk have a common enemy; and winter is coming.

Minecraft: Story Mode Reveal Trailer and First Cast Details

Posted on July 2015 by puzzlebox

Minecraft: Story Mode


Revealed today at MINECON in London... the world premiere trailer and first cast details for Minecraft: Story Mode - A Telltale Games Series!



You'll control protagonist Jesse throughout the season, as portrayed by actor Patton Oswalt. Jesse and his group of friends revere the legendary Order of the Stone; four adventurers who slayed an Ender Dragon. The Order are the very best at what they do: Warrior, Redstone Engineer, Griefer, and Architect. While at EnderCon, Jesse and his friends discover that something is wrong... something dreadful. Terror is unleashed, and they must set out on a journey to find The Order of the Stone if they are to save their world from oblivion.

The season will feature Patton Oswalt, Brian Posehn, Ashley Johnson, Scott Porter, Martha Plimpton, Dave Fennoy, Corey Feldman, Billy West, and Paul Reubens. Look for further casting details to come!

What else can we tell you about the upcoming series and how cool it is to be collaborating as studios? Hear it straight from Telltale's own CEO and Mojang's Chief Word Officer...

"We've worked closely with the amazing team at Mojang to ensure this story is a natural fit for the Minecraft world fans already know and love," said Kevin Bruner, CEO and co-founder of Telltale Games. "As Jesse, players will steer their own path through a tale of adventure and survival; all brought to life by an all-star cast. Through Telltale's choice-based gameplay and a story spanning from the Nether to the Farlands, the End, and beyond, we can't wait for fans to experience this new take on the beloved world of Minecraft."

"The interactive storytellers at Telltale are giving players the chance to explore their own unique interpretation of the Minecraft universe," said Owen Hill, Chief Word Officer at Mojang. "They've crafted a story that follows the logic of Minecraft, but still manages to feel original. It's actually pretty funny too. And the pig is adorable. We're super excited about players digging deeper into the world of Minecraft: Story Mode later this year."

Minecraft: Story Mode will be a standalone product, separate from the core Minecraft game, and will be available to download later this year on PC/Mac, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and compatible iOS and Android-based devices.

We'll also be doing a panel with Mojang at 4:30pm London time Saturday (8:30am PT / 11:30am ET), where we'll go into a little more depth about how our collaboration started and what you can expect to see in Minecraft: Story Mode.

Telltale and Skybound Announce 'The Walking Dead: Michonne - A Telltale Games Mini-Series'

Posted on June 2015 by puzzlebox

The Walking Dead: Michonne - A Telltale Games Series

Announced this morning at E3 in Los Angeles, today we can finally reveal the next installment for The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series, set to premiere later this fall!

The Walking Dead: Michonne - A Telltale Games Mini-Series stars the iconic character from the comic book series haunted by her past and coping with unimaginable loss and regret. The story explores her untold journey during the time between issues #126 and #139. Through this Telltale Games mini-series of 3 episodes, players will discover what took Michonne away from Rick, Ezekiel, and the rest of her trusted group… and what brought her back.

You can expect to see the premiere this fall on PC/Mac, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and compatible iOS and Android-based devices. You'll need at least the first episode of The Walking Dead: Season Two in order to play The Walking Dead: Michonne, but we'll have more info on that for you closer to the premiere date.

So why did we choose Michonne for Telltale's first-ever mini-series? Robert Kirkman and Telltale's own Kevin Bruner can tell you more...

"In many ways, Michonne herself is a reflection of the world of The Walking Dead. She is brutal and cold on the outside, but deep beneath what is broken, she remains hopeful, trying to claw her way out of the darkness that surrounds her," said Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead. "In our effort to bring the world of the comic and the world of the Telltale series closer together, there is no greater character than Michonne to help bridge that gap."

"Michonne's complexity and range make her an ideal lead for the compelling interactive drama fans have come to expect from Telltale," said Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games. "With this mini-series, players will experience Michonne's challenges first-hand, and the choices they make will shape her journey. We're incredibly honored by Robert for the opportunity to share this untold story in The Walking Dead universe."

As ever, stay tuned to Telltale Games on Twitter, Facebook, and right here on the blog for the latest updates as they happen!

Posted on June 2015 by puzzlebox

Tales from the Borderlands Ep 3 key art

Alright, kiddos... today we can finally share these screenshots from Tales from the Borderlands Episode 3 - 'Catch a Ride'!

After a dizzying escape from a very-near-almost-certain-death scenario (involving statuesque buttocks), Rhys and Fiona find themselves looking for another piece of the puzzle that will lead them to the untold riches of Vault key ownership. Lost in the mysterious jungle of an Atlas terraforming facility, Fiona finds help from an unexpected mentor, Rhys continues to share brain-space with the disembodied mind of a dead dictator, and love is in the air. Pursued by the ruthless criminal 'Queenpin' Vallory, and with very little help from Vaughn's accountancy skills (or stellar abs), getting anywhere near the Vault will be entirely up to you.

The episode is expected to be available for digital download the week of June 23rd on PC/Mac via the Telltale Online Store, Steam, and other digital distribution outlets, and on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Android, and iOS devices. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and right here on the blog for the latest details on exact release dates as they are confirmed. We can hardly wait for folks to play this one!

Today we're thrilled to share these all-new screenshots for Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series Episode 4 - 'Sons of Winter', available to download soon on consoles, PC, Mac, and mobile!

In Episode 4, the fate of the scattered Forresters hangs in the balance, and no one allied with the family is safe. An unexpected meeting offers Rodrik a new opportunity to free Ironrath from its Whitehill stranglehold, but with young Ryon Forrester still held prisoner, his next moves are critical. Gared must abandon Castle Black and venture beyond the Wall in search of the mysterious North Grove, risking encounters with Wildlings and worse. In King's Landing, the population is reeling from a recent royal death, and Mira must step carefully in an increasingly complex game of politics where secrets are traded as currency. Far away in Essos, Asher infiltrates the slave city of Meereen at the behest of Daenerys Targaryen, but will the friendship he holds dear break under the strain of a mission that raises memories best forgotten?

Game of Thrones Episode 3 - 'The Sword in the Darkness' Out Now

Game of Thrones Episode 3 out now

Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series Episode 3 - 'The Sword in the Darkness' is out now on PC/Mac, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360! Look for it on iOS and Android-based devices starting tomorrow.

This one is an exciting milestone: with episode 3 of 6 out, we're now officially at the halfway mark of the season! Check out what the press had to say about the latest episode...

  • GamesRadar - "easily on par with some of the TV show's best episodes... The Sword in the Darkness is Game of Thrones' best showing yet"

  • GameSpot - "It made me physically anxious... fabulously disturbing... If you've been playing it safe up to this point, deferring to answers that keep the characters safe and relatively benign, you're in for a rude awakening. Episode Three marks the beginning of the end for neutrality. There are tough decisions to make and no way around them, making this episode true to the Game of Thrones atmosphere at its core."

  • Jimquisition - "The Sword in the Darkness sees Telltale's Game of Thrones start to really hit its stride... After this episode, I finally feel invested in every single point-of-view character, each one having been given a solid task with a sizable array of antagonists and risks on the line. Very well done stuff all round"

  • VentureBeat/GamesBeat - "I'm still riveted. I still cannot wait to play the next episode. I'm still amazed that you get this much entertainment for just about $5 a month. And I'm still not missing the show nearly as much as I would if Telltale wasn't taking great care of me."

  • Entertainment Weekly - "with some brutal but memorable story beats, 'Darkness' sets the stage for a thrilling second half of the season."

  • Game Informer - "wonderfully captivating"

  • PC Gamer - "As a book reader, I have a pretty good idea of where HBO's latest season is headed, but this... feels like something entirely new."

  • Winter-is-Coming.net - "With The Sword in the Darkness, Telltale has once again proven that it is the best in the business. The episode easily gets 10 out of 10 stars from me, and I simply cannot wait for Episode 4."

Tales from the Borderlands Episode 2 - 'Atlas Mugged' is out now on PC/Mac, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360... and it hits iOS and Android-based devices tomorrow!

If you need an extra push to start playing and join the madcap hilarity, look no further than what the press is saying about this latest episode!

GameSpot - "It's absurd, lewd, and hilarious... a blitz from one high-energy scene to another... continues to be a crazy ride through a story that successfully employs the most beloved elements of the Borderlands franchise."


Alt text

Entertainment Weekly - "succeeds in carrying the series' momentum and delivering one of Telltale's most engrossing series yet... [Atlas Mugged] retains the original series' hilarity and gives it a heart I wouldn’t have expected... proves that skipping Tales would be to miss out on one of Telltale's strongest franchise starts."

IGN - "It constantly oscillates between thrilling action scenes, hilarious back-and-forth banter, and some poignant character moments... the episode ends on one of the best cliffhangers in recent Telltale memory... I consider myself completely on board for Telltale's wild ride."


Alt text

Polygon - "This is a world where death is cheap and suffering is common, but the game goes out of its way to show you a fun, sometimes joyful time. The voice actors, from Troy Baker to Patrick Warburton, approach the script with gusto, and the writing crackles with the sort of life and energy that drives the best comedy."


Alt text

Shacknews - "'Atlas Mugged' makes it clear that Tales from the Borderlands is rapidly becoming a Handsome Jack story. Those looking to see what becomes of the dastardly villain may find their curiosity piqued. As for Rhys and Fiona, the peril surrounding them and their friends is only growing bigger and, judging by the ending, it doesn't look like the third episode will go any easier on them."


Alt text

NZGamer - "the latest episode has been worth the wait. Everything that made the debut great - the humour, the larger-than-life characters, the gorgeous art - is still present... spot-on delivery... had me falling off the couch in laughter... Borderlands has always been hilarious, but there's some unexpected depth here as well."

God is a Geek - "the writing is so sharp. It's difficult to think of ten games that make you laugh out loud when playing them, but Tales from the Borderlands does it with such ease that you wonder where the writers have been hiding. Self aware, they totally, absolutely continue to understand the Borderlands universe... this might actually be Telltale's best series"

Telltale and Mojang Developing 'Minecraft: Story Mode - A Telltale Games Series' for 2015

Posted on December 2014 by puzzlebox

Minecraft: Story Mode logo

As 2014 comes to a close, we are delighted to confirm our partnership with Mojang to create a new episodic game series based on one of the most popular video games in history - Minecraft.

Minecraft: Story Mode will be an all-new narrative-driven game series developed by Telltale in collaboration with Mojang. Set in the world of Minecraft, the series will feature an original story, driven by player choice. It will not be an add-on for Minecraft, but rather a separate stand-alone product that will premiere in 2015 on consoles, computers and mobile devices.

Telltale's game series will mix new characters with familiar themes, in an entirely original Minecraft experience, inspired by the Minecraft community and the game that continues to inspire a generation.

2014 is Telltale's tenth anniversary year; seeing in the climactic finales of the critically acclaimed and best-selling The Wolf Among Us and The Walking Dead: Season Two. With the recent premieres of both Game of Thrones and Tales from the Borderlands, our 2015 lineup will include the remainder of both of those new series, and now it will also include the premiere of Minecraft: Story Mode.

After ten years of making games, Telltale is JUST getting started! We would like to thank all of our incredible fans across the world, as we continue to forge ahead in creating adventures where the most important author of each story is YOU. We'll have more in the months ahead, but for now, we thank you again, and wish you a safe and happy holiday and a prosperous New Year!
