Arguably Telltale’s best series to date, Tales from the Borderlands is getting a physical disc release this April. Specifically you’ll be able to run into a retail store and pick up a copy on April 21st in Australia, April 22nd in Europe, and April 26th in North America. The disc will contain all five episodes of the series, which you can check out our individual reviews for here.
The physical disc release of Tales from the Borderlands will be available on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC, giving you a lot of options as far as what system to play it on. The game has, of course, been available digitally on these and other platforms for a while, but being able to get all the episodes in a single package will be really nice. It’s also great for those that prefer collecting physical copies of their games, as Telltale releasing physical versions is still pretty rare, usually happening well after the series is finished, if it happens at all.
Tales from the Borderlands was a bit of a risky venture for the company, coming off the hugely successful and popular The Walking Dead game. The Wolf Among Us was also critically acclaimed, though sales seemed much lower than its predecessor. The Borderlands series is extremely popular, but not really for its deep and rich story line, as those other properties are. Yet Telltale pulled it off, delivering not only a touching and emotional drama, but also some of the best written humor in video games.
The big question now, as it was shortly after the conclusion of the series is, will there be a Tales from the Borderlands Season 2. Not to get too spoilery, but the game ended on somewhat of a cliffhanger, with fans anxious to see the continuing adventures of Rhys, Fiona, and the whole gang. Hopefully this release indicates more support for the franchise out of Telltale.
