News | Gearbox announces new Tales from the Borderlands

Gearbox has announced that it is working on a new Tales from the Borderlands. The game is scheduled for release in 2022. Unfortunately this time Tales without Telltale.

That was revealed during the Gearbox presentation at Pax East in Boston. The game is published by 2K and developed by Gearbox. This project has been secretly worked on for years. In the game, players get to work with new characters and new stories.

The first Tales of the Borderlands was released in 2014 and was still being developed by Telltale Games. That studio went bankrupt in November 2018. The game was based on Borderlands 2 and took players through the story in five episodes. It is not yet known what the new game will be about.


News | Tiny Tina's Wonderlands Coiled Captors Expansion Revealed

Gearbox has unveiled Coiled Captors, the first expansion for Tiny Tina's Wonderlands.

In this first expansion to the game, players will visit the interior of an icy mountain, home to “winter wastes, barren ruins and flooded caves”. Here, players must rescue an ancient god named Chums.

The expansion is described as a “replayable dungeon challenge”. There are four different forms of Chums for players to compete against, and each week unlocks a different form of this god. So every week the dungeon has to be traversed again to reach the god.

Completing the DLC adds content to the Chaos Chamber mode. There is also new gear and cosmetic items to unlock.

Coiled Captors comes out tomorrow and is the first of four expansions – the other three being Glotton’s Gamble, Molten Mirrors and Shattering Spectreglass. The expansions can be purchased separately or as part of the Season Pass.
