Note: Dumpy is missing from the poll since it’s unclear if it will return, but if it does we’ll hear its screams first LOL! 😆
While normally we’d get a sneak peek at the continued adventures of Rhys & Fiona on Pandora. No Tales from the Borderlands Episode 5 preview was included at the end of the Episode 4. 🙁 Which seems to happen at the end of each Telltale season. Which means we’ll have to wait at least 2 months to see the launch trailer with any gameplay footage for Episode 5.
Episode 5 Synopsis: “The past and Present collide in Rhys and Fiona’s final chapter.”
The Episode 4 chapter names hint at what events to expect:
• Chapter 1: A Maze Of Twisty Passages, All Alike
• Chapter 2: Unforseen Consequences
• Chapter 3: Give And Take (Mostly Take)
• Chapter 4: Definition Of Insanity
• Chapter 5: Time’s A Wastin’
• Chapter 6: What’s It Worth?
• Chapter 7: Tales Twice Told
The Episode names may hint at overarching story themes:
• Episode 1: Zer0 Sum
• Episode 2: Atlas Mugged
• Episode 3: Catch a Ride
• Episode 4: Escape Plan Bravo
• Episode 5: The Vault of the Traveler
Season 1 Info: There are five episodes in total in the first season of the game — keep in mind a second season hasn’t been confirmed, they are just called seasons like a set of TV show episodes are. After the end of each Tales from the Borderlands adventure game episode, Telltale Games is nice enough to include a teaser trailer for the next episode. However, in this case the on August 18th, 2015 released Tales from the Borderlands Episode 4 Walkthrough includes no The Tales from the Borderlands Episode 5 trailer due to that episode still being heavily in development! – Once we do get a trailer we’ll add it at the top of this page.
