Hidden at the end of a new trailer from Telltale is a snippet of video from the upcoming finale to the Tales from the Borderlands series. Tales from the Borderlands Episode 5 ‘The Vault of the Traveler’ will begin hitting on October 20th (platform details below), according to the trailer, which also has a very interesting tease of some pretty huge events in the game.
The point of the trailer was really to just share some accolades for the series, and announce that the first episode, Zer0 Sum, would be free. Telltale has done this before, offering initial episodes in their series for free. The point is to get people hooked on the series, making them grab the subsequent episodes later on, of course.
However, Telltale took it a step further, breaking out of their usual news cycle in regards to new episodes of their games. The teaser video is pretty tough to understand, with Fiona asking her captor what it is that he wants out of “all of this”. He responds “the truth” and then we see a giant hand rise from the ground. How this will play out in the game is a bit of a mystery.

Tales from the Borderlands Episode 5 will be released on October 20th for PC/Mac, PS3, and PS4; October 21st for Xbox 360 and Xbox One; and October 22nd for mobile.
