Watch the Premiere of TALES FROM THE BORDERLANDS Live

Aw yeah, suckerbutts! The worldwide release of Telltale Games’ Tales from the Borderlands, the five-part adventure game series based on Gearbox Software and 2K’s Borderlands, is right around the corner. In Tales from the Borderlands‘ first episode, “Zer0 Sum”, players will take control of two enterprising adventurers — Rhys, an opportunistic cog in Hyperion’s corporate machine, and Fiona, a crafty con woman with her eyes on the prize — as they each try to make off with a sizable score on the dangerous world of Pandora, a lawless land populated by renegade bandits, deadly monsters, and the majestic Bonerfart. As you may have been able to deduce from yesterday’s Twitter exchange between Telltale, Gearbox, Alamo Drafthouse, and us, we are going to be doing something very special for the premiere of Tales from the Borderlands.


Who: Telltale Games, Gearbox, 2K, Nerdist, and you.

What: The first-ever playthrough of Tales from the Borderlands‘ first episode “Zer0 Sum” where you and other audience members will help make the important decisions LIVE!

When: Monday, November 24, 2014 at 8PM CT

Where: The Alamo Drafthouse in Richardson, TX and livestreamed on the official Nerdist Twitch channel.

Why: Why the hell not?

That’s right — Tales from the Borderlands is invading the Alamo Drafthouse in Richardson, TX. Together with Telltale Games, Gearbox, and 2K, we will be livestreaming the world premiere of Tales from the Borderlands‘ first episode on our official Twitch channel. But we won’t be alone! We’ll be joined by some of the most vaunted Vault Hunters and hardcore Borderlands fans in town who will be helping us make the tough decisions during our live playthrough.

Everyone in attendance will get a special something, but considering this series is all about finding the raddest loot imaginable, don’t you want to know what you might win for being the best dressed?

If you don’t want to a miss a thing, be sure to follow our Twitch channel. Now saddle up your Butt Stallion and giddyup. If you get a move on now, you’ll make it to the Alamo Drafthouse by next Monday evening.
