Butt Stallion returns in Tales From the Borderlands Episode 4, out next week

A pony made of diamonds that poops and/or pukes guns is something that could only exist in the Borderlands universe, and too precious an idea to let go to waste. Thankfully, it looks like Butt Stallion - oh, did I not mention the pony's name is Butt Stallion? - will make a triumphant return in Tales of the Borderlands Episode 4, due August 18 for PC, PS3 and PS4, August 19 for Xbox 360 and Xbox One, and August 20 for mobile platforms.

Subtitled "Escape Plan Bravo," Episode 4 will challenge heroes Rhys and Fiona to find the Vault beacon - which unfortunately for them, resides on a space station. Players will need to figure out a way into the station and secure the beacon while dealing with psychos, bandits, Handsome Jack and other perils of Pandora.

Don't give up though! Just remember, when the going gets tough, the tough get Butt Stallion.
