More news?! Okay. Yeah. So, the team is working hard on finishing 102, and yes, we hope you’ll really enjoy it! I played a version before the weekend and checked it out again later tonight and it’s looking great! We know the wait has been a while, but we hope you’ll agree it’ll be worth it!
Sometimes we’ll play an episode and sometimes it might need a little more love or a little more time to be the best it can be. With Tales from the Borderlands Ep 2, this was the case. The reception to the first episode was, quite frankly, above and beyond what we ever hoped! We cannot thank you enough for playing this series as we kicked off! We want Ep 2 to be awesome. This of course means that it’s taking a few extra weeks to make sure it’s as fun as the first.
After the premiere, we took some time to look at everyone’s feedback and take a closer look at different choices being made, listening to the player community. These factor into the overall development process. Remember, we’re in live development! This series was a fresh idea and a unique take on an existing universe, and it meant we had to listen very carefully to what you had to say, and what you did in the premiere. This factors into certain aspects of the game and story itself as the series progresses.
With a series as big as Tales, and with a cast that’s only going to grow and perhaps tie even more closely to what’s happened/happening elsewhere in the Borderlands universe, this second episode has a lot of ground to cover! The cast is huge and the action is pretty crazy. Also, Scooter is a bit of a handful, so we hope you’ll understand when we get a little tied up managing the talent.
We’re always striving to deliver quality content on a frequent and more predictable basis, but at the end of the day, quality content comes first.
We’re insanely excited to get everyone playing ‘Atlas Mugged’ as soon as possible. It’ll be in your hands checks Telltale ‘S-word’ Thesaurus … ‘before long,’ but not before our panel at PAX East next weekend, I can say that.
That said, the panel will be a blast! We’ll be out in Boston opening the show with the ‘Story Time’ panel, then we’ll be with Gearbox on Sunday the 8th along with Rhys and Fiona themselves, Troy Baker and Laura Bailey!
If all goes well, MAYBE THERE WILL BE SOME KIND OF VIDEO TO SHOW YOU!?! Who knows!? If all goes even better, I’m hopeful we’ll have a firm date to share with you as well. It may be beyond our control on that date, but as you know, as soon as we know, you’ll know via twitter, and I’ll be tweeting that myself the minute our dates are locked with our partners.
I really do thank you guys again for all of your patience. You mean the world to us, and if we’re ever quiet on the boards, it’s largely due to us being so busy here working to make the best episodes possible.
In the future, keep your eyes peeled to our twitter accounts for the most frequent updates as they happen. Also stay tuned here in the coming weeks and months as our team grows and we have more awesome community activities, events, live-streams, and all kinds of fun things planned for this year and beyond!
Thanks again, guys. That’s all for now, but stay tuned for more!
