If you’ve been digging Telltale Games’ Tales From the Borderlands episodic series, but have been wondering where the heck episode 3 was, rejoice because it was recently revealed that we’ll be seeing the title “the week of June 23rd.” In addition to information and a plot synopsis, the developer also released six screenshots that have gotten us excited for what’s to come.
Before you peep the episode’s full synopsis below, I’d like to state the obvious and tell you that there are spoilers ahead. There. I said it. Now, don’t complain and read on if you dare:
“After a dizzying escape from a very-near-almost-certain-death scenario (involving statuesque buttocks), Rhys and Fiona find themselves looking for another piece of the puzzle that will lead them to the untold riches of Vault key ownership. Lost in the mysterious jungle of an Atlas terraforming facility, Fiona finds help from an unexpected mentor, Rhys continues to share brain-space with the disembodied mind of a dead dictator, and love is in the air. Pursued by the ruthless criminal ‘Queenpin’ Vallory, and with very little help from Vaughn’s accountancy skills (or stellar abs), getting anywhere near the Vault will be entirely up to you.”
Though they’re being vague about the date, it is expected to be available for digital download on PC/Mac via the Telltale Online Store, Steam and other distribution services, and on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Android and iOS devices.
“Catch a Ride” is the third installment in a five part series set in Pandora following the events in Borderlands 2. The first two episodes “Zer0 Sum” (released November 2014) and “Atlas Mugged” (released March 2015) received critical acclaim for its thrilling action scenes and hilarious dialogue.
