It seems that PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S versions of the episode adventure Tales from the Borderlands are in the works. At least this was suggested by the age rating board of the PEGI.
In November 2014, the publisher 2K Games released Tales from the Borderlands, which combined the weird humor of the Borderlands series with the classic episode format from Telltale Games.
Just before the end of the week, we got the rumor that 2K Games was working on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S conversions of Tales from the Borderlands. This is indicated at least by the corresponding age ratings that have now appeared in the databases of the Pan European Game Information (PEGI for short), in which the game is listed for the new generation of consoles.
Since an official statement or even confirmation from 2K Games is still pending, it remains to be seen when the release of the next-gen ports can be expected in the end. In addition, there is the question of whether the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S implementations of the title are created internally at 2K Games or whether an external studio has been commissioned with the porting. As long as the information from the PEGI is not a simple error, of course.
Tales from the Borderlands tells the story of the two protagonists Rhys and Fiona, who are kidnapped by an unknown person and forced to tell him the story of the so-called Gortys project. While Rhys has been demoted to a caretaker by one of Hyperion’s leading employees and therefore has the desire to snatch an important deal from his former employer, the con artist Fiona goes her own way.
As fate would have it, however, Rhys and Fiona’s paths cross, and the two experience an adventure that leads far beyond the boundaries of their home planet Pandora.
