Gamescom 2022: New trailer for Hogwarts Legacy

New Tales from the Borderlands announcement trailer

The Borderlands series is actually known as a loot shooter. With Tales from the Borderlands, developer Telltale Games has taken a very different path. The spinoff appeared as an interactive point-and-click adventure in several episodes and the focus was much more on the characters and the story. New Tales from the Borderlands is now a new installment being taken over by developer studio Gearbox Software. However, the focus will be on new characters, so it is not a direct successor to Tales from the Borderlands.

A new story trailer was unveiled during the Gamescom opening show.
