Tonight at the 2013 VGX awards, Telltale Games announced "Tales from the Borderlands," an all-new series from the studio that created the critically acclaimed The Walking Dead point-and-click adventure series.

The game will launch in 2014 as a series, though platforms were not specified. Previous episodic games from Telltale released first on PC before coming to consoles later.

According to Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford, Gearbox has provided the "keys to the kingdom" to Telltale to create the game. Telltale is the principal developer, while Gearbox will serve as a collaborator only.

Tales from the Borderlands will feature new characters, not the vault hunters players have come to know from the stylized shooter series. However, players will encounter familiar characters throughout the series.

The 2013 VGX awards are currently ongoing. Keep checking back for more news and video from the show.
