For the first time since 2019, Telltale Games’ Tales From the Borderlands series is coming back to stores on February 17.
Borderlands series developer Gearbox announced the news Wednesday on the official Borderlands Twitter account.

Gearbox didn’t confirm which digital storefronts Tales would be returning to, but the game previously released on Steam. Borderlands 3 also ended up on both Steam and the Epic Games Store. Gearbox also didn’t provide any pricing information.
Tales From the Borderlands was one the many casualties of the now infamous shuttering of Telltale Games in 2018. After mass layoffs, many of the studio’s games were pulled from digital storefronts or, if they were in development (like The Wolf Among Us 2), canceled. Tales From the Borderlands actually managed to escape the first round of Steam removals, but both Valve and Good Old Games removed Tales from their platforms in mid-2019 for unexplained reasons.
Tales From the Borderlands originally released on November 25, 2014 to high praise for its comedic storytelling and classic Telltale strengths. Set after Borderlands 2, Tales follows the adventures of two Hyperion employees and a con artist hunting down a mythical vault, spurring numerous hilarious diversions along the way. It features voice acting from the likes of Troy Baker, Laura Bailey, Chris Hardwick, Ashley Johnson, and Patrick Warburton.
A number of Telltale’s pre-Walking Dead catalog remains unavailable on Steam, including Back to the Future and Game of Thrones.
