Telltale Autumn Sale

Question about Tales of the Borderlands

Hi, I am new to this forum and this particular series. I just wanted to know: if I have never played a Borderlands game before can I still understand the story of this game?

  • Well this game takes place after Borderlands 2 so I'm not sure

  • So I should probably take that as a no?

  • Well its not based off the overall story of the first 2 games since your playing as 2 new characters so I think at most you won't get references to past games so You can still play it but it would be much more enjoyable if you played the first 2 Borderlands or atleast i would assume so

  • Ok thanks so much for your help!

    BL is not a heavy story driven game. It is all about the loot. That is why i am excited to see telltale expand upon the universe and the planet pandora.
    Edit: I just fixed some nasty typoos.

    Telltale usually designs their games to be friendly to newcomers of a series.

    I've played a majority of Telltale's seasons without knowing what the source material was like, and still enjoyed the story/game/etc. Even with more complex series like the Fables comic series (as seen in Telltale's Wolf Among Us), Telltale does a good job at easing players into deep story elements.

    However, as angrykurd mentioned above...

    BL is not a heavy story driven game.

    ...so you should be fine if you've never played the game before.

  • Thank you so much for your answer. Guess I can enjoy another new brilliant game by Telltale!
