Tales from the Borderlands launch trailer is a gateway drug to Gearbox’s lore

Borderlands insanity mixed with TellTale’s sharp writing. This launch trailer makes the results look delicious.

What interests me about Tales from the Borderlands is how many reviews mention that TellTale’s series highlights Borderlands lore. Even Gearbox has said that the core Borderlands games don’t do a good job of telling stories and exploring the universe – especially in the madness of co-op, with everyone talking and blowing stuff up – but that doesn’t mean the franchise doesn’t host an ongoing plot (or ten).
