Oh, well this is quite a nice little surprise for anyone that hasn't sampled Tales from the Borderlands yet. The story's first episode is now free to download, play, and complete on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, developer Telltale has announced. Alongside this pleasant news, it's also revealed a release date for the fifth and final episode in the series - it'll launch on the 20th October on both of the aforementioned consoles.

We weren't all that enthralled with the idea of a narrative driven experience based upon what is essentially a shoot-and-loot extravaganza, but since reviewer Graham Banas has been awarding each episode some rather enticing review scores, we'd better stop questioning it. Even editor Sammy Barker thinks that the series is good, so it must be doing something right.
