‘Tales from the Borderlands’ Episode 3 Finally Has a Release Date

If the time between episodes 1 and 2 of Telltale’s The Wolf Among Us felt like 84 years, then the wait for episode 3 of Tales from the Borderlands must be twice that. (168 years, to be exact. I know this because I triple checked on my phone’s calculator app.)

This morning we were rewarded for our unending patience and our appropriate amounts of grumbling with an approximate release week and first look screenshots at what to expect from the next installment of the story, titled “Catch a Ride”. Check ’em out:

Here’s the official word from the Telltale Games Tumblr account, along with a sweet synopsis of episode 3:

Alright, kiddos… today we can finally share these screenshots from Tales from the Borderlands Episode 3 – ‘Catch a Ride’!

After a dizzying escape from a very-near-almost-certain-death scenario (involving statuesque buttocks), Rhys and Fiona find themselves looking for another piece of the puzzle that will lead them to the untold riches of Vault key ownership. Lost in the mysterious jungle of an Atlas terraforming facility, Fiona finds help from an unexpected mentor, Rhys continues to share brain-space with the disembodied mind of a dead dictator, and love is in the air. Pursued by the ruthless criminal ‘Queenpin’ Vallory, and with very little help from Vaughn’s accountancy skills (or stellar abs), getting anywhere near the Vault will be entirely up to you.

The episode is expected to be available for digital download the week of June 23rd on PC/Mac via the Telltale Online Store, Steam, and other digital distribution outlets, and on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Android, and iOS devices. Follow Telltale Games on Twitter and Facebook for the latest details on exact release dates as they are confirmed. We can hardly wait for folks to play this one!

So it’s still not locked down to a specific date, but at least we know when to expect it: in less than two weeks! And look at all that Athena. Get excited, guys.
