After teasing fans earlier this year, it would appear that 2K and Gearbox Software are readying an October release for New Tales From the Borderlands. Thanks to a leaked listing of the Deluxe Edition by Amazon (which has now been removed), we now know that New Tales from the Borderlands will launch on October 21 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
Per PushSquare, in addition to the release date, pre-order information was also revealed. Pre-orders for the Deluxe Edition include the “Adventure Capital Pack,” which includes cosmetics for Anu, Octavio, and Fran, as well as 10,000 in-game currency, and an in-game FL4K Vaultlander collectible.
The story for New Tales centres on the perpetually war-torn metropolis of Promethea. Players will control altruistic scientist Anu, her ambitious “streetwise” brother Octavio, and the fierce, frogurt-slinging Fran as they endeavor to change (and eventually save) the world from a planetary invasion, a vicious vault monster, and a cold-hearted capitalist in what’s described as a five-part “cinematic thrill ride”.
This time around, the decisions you make determine how the story for New Tales From the Borderlands ends. Whether it’s Anu’s vision of a universe that markets more than weapons, Octavio’s dreams of fame and fortune, or Fran’s frosty plot for revenge, their success or failure depends on you.
