Telltale and Gearbox team up for Tales from the Borderlands.

One of the many VGX Awards announcements that were made during the event these days, was the one about Telltale and Gearbox teaming up to bring us Tales from the Borderlands.

Telltale will be the prime developer with Gearbox's "property" and when asked if we'll get to shoot stuff again, Telltale president Kevin Bruner replied with "You get to shoot stuff, but in a different way. In a Telltale way." He further noted that it will play "like a Telltale game" so that'll mean making tough decisions and talking to characters.

"It's big, it's bombastic, there's all sorts of crazy stuff going on," Bruner added.

Gearbox founder Randy Pitchford said the studios decided to team up after the VGAs last year where Telltale won Game of the Year with The Walking Dead. "Telltale makes in my opinion the best storytelling games in the world," Pitchford said.

We don't know much about Tales from the Borderlands just yet, but Bruner noted its cast would not be vault hunters. That's a lot of work to put into developing new games though, because the team also announced that they are working on a new Game Of Thrones adventure series and fans are already expecting something great. The team already has The Wolf Among Us and The Walking Dead Season Two in development too!
