You ever get into an interesting story right as the person telling it drops off the face of the Earth for a few months? Tales from the Borderlands (opens in new tab) is kind of like that. Fortunately, Telltale Games has revealed that the second episode of its hectic Pandoran adventure will release this month on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and mobile devices.
The episode is set to roll out during the week of March 17, but if you're still star struck from the eponymous assassin's ass-kicking appearance in Zer0 Sum, you'll be positively giddy after watching this trailer for Episode 2: Atlas Mugged. Get it, like the Ayn Rand novel? BioShock isn't the only game that gets to make libertarian references!
Your eyes didn't deceive you: it looks like this episode's Vault-Hunter-of-the-week is Athena, complete with shield-throwing action. She might want to get some Visine or something, though, because her eyes are looking super irritated.
Players will continue to control Fiona and Rhys as they recount their tale in episode 2. This time you'll follow their exploits as they race against just about everybody else on the planet to find out what the Atlas Corporation was up to with the Gortys Project before Hyperion strong-armed it out of Pandora.
Also, Handsome Jack's jedi ghost hologram is still kicking. There's just no getting rid of that guy.
