It's time to Make Mayhem Your Business! An extraordinary cinematic adventure awaits in New Tales from the Borderlands, out now on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store.

On the war-torn planet of Promethea, three ordinary citizens embark on a journey that will change their lives—and possibly the entire universe—forever. Anu, Octavio, and Fran will try to turn the tables on greedy corporations, survive a planetary invasion, and even risk life and limb in the face of a vicious Vault monster!

Along the way, you'll meet a friendly assassination bot, square off against a talking gun, wield the power of a revolutionary new invention, and more!

The decisions you make determine how the story unfolds—often in unexpected ways. Whether it's Anu's vision of a universe that markets more than weapons, Octavio's dreams of fame and fortune, or Fran's frosty plot for revenge, their success or failure depends on your choices.
