Telltale Games and Gearbox Software have finally broken their silence on Tales from the Borderlands at a recent SXSW panel.

The panel was titled  “Two Sides to Every Story – Tales from the Borderlands Unveiled at SXSW and featured gearbox President Randy Pitchford, Borderlands 2 writer Anthony Burch, Borderlands Franchise Director Matthew Armstrong, Telltale President Kevin Bruner, and designer Harrison Pink.

Polygon attended the panel and reported on some of the details that were shared. The two characters shown in the announcement trailer are called Rhys and Fiona—neither of them are vault hunters. Rhys is a Hyperion company man and Fiona is a con-artist.

Players will control both characters in the past as they each recall the events of the game. However, both Rhys and Fiona’s versions of events are different, and players will quickly notice the discrepancies in both accounts. “You never really play what actually happened, you’re playing this Big Fish version of what happened,” Telltale’s Kevin Bruner explained.

Tales from the Borderlands will have a similar structure to previous Telltale titles, but designer Harrison Pink did mention that there will be shooting segments, “just in a Telltale kind of way.”
