A recent, but now delisted, listing on Amazon has pointed towards October 21st as a release date for New Tales from the Borderlands on the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and Switch with some details also revealed thanks to the listing. Those who are to pre-order a copy of the game will be given the “Adventure Capital Pack” that will offer cosmetics for the game’s Anu, Octavia, and Fran characters as well as 10,000 in game currency.
With Gearbox taking charge of development this time around and apparently focusing on a brand new story, the listing has given us a bit of a preview of what to expect as players will control Anu, Octavio, and Fran on the worst day of their lives. The characters are described as the altruistic scientist Anu, her ambitious, “streetwise” brother Octavio, and the fierce, frogurt-slinging Fran. With nothing left to lose and everything to gain, you’ll claw and con your way through this thrilling five-part story!
Help these three lovable losers as they endeavor to change the world (and maybe even save it)! Face down a planetary invasion, vicious vault monster, and cold-hearted capitalist in this cinematic thrill ride where what happens next is up to you! Meet a motley cast full of misfits, assassin bots, and talking guns in this race to the top!
It is worth noting that, at least at the moment, 2K has not made this announcement official though an announcement is likely to happen either soon or within the next few weeks.
