The penultimate episode of Tales From the Borderlands will be available next week.

The Tales From the Borderlands series by Telltale Games will release episode 4- Escape Plan Bravo, on Tuesday, August 18th.

This episode will have players travelling to Helios station, as main protagonists Rhys and Fiona are forced to search for the Vault Beacon at gunpoint. Rhys and Fiona will be getting some help from familiar faces, including the ghost of Handsome Jack himself, now stuck in Rhys head.

Telltale, however, is promising that not everyone is going to make it, stating that “sacrifices are going to be made. Can you make the touch choices required to succeed?”



Tales From the Borderlands is a collaboration between Telltale Games, the developer behind the hit episodic series The Walking Dead and Wolf Among Us, Gearbox Software and 2k Games. The series takes place after the events of Borderlands 2, and features both new and old characters from the Borderlands series.

The first episode of the five episode series, Zer0 Sum, was released back in November of 2014. After Escape Plan Bravo, only one episode, titled The Vault and the Traveler, remains.

Currently, Gearbox has made no official announcement regarding the continuation of the Borderlands series, outside of Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford stating the next game is going to be “massive” and for current-generation consoles. Also of note is Borderlands creator Matt Armstrong left Gearbox back in April. Gearbox is currently preparing for the launch of their MOBA-styled game Battleborn in 2016.

Telltale Games is currently in production with A Game of Thrones, which is scheduled to wrap up after Episode 6 this year, and Minecraft: Story Mode, which is another collaborative title- this time between Telltale Games and Mojang.
