I'm currently about to play both games (are bought and installed). Played BL 1 and 2. Do either one have spoilers about the other (so I could play the unspoiled one first)

    It's difficult to judge what spoilers Tales may contain or what from the presequel may spoil it, as only 2/5ths of it have been released yet. Speculatively, a reasonable person would expect a large number of the people playing Tales to have played the other Borderlands games that came out before it so the path of least spoiler-ness should be the order of publication. – TZHX Mar 22 '15 at 14:28
  • I guess I could rephrase it as 'Which one comes first in the timeline' I guess you can't spoil something that hasn't happened yet, even if I guess you could foreshadow stuff. – Fredy31 Mar 22 '15 at 14:30

Borderlands: The Presequel is between Borderlands 2 (the sequel) and Borderlands 1.

And here's a quote from Tales from the Borderlands FAQ:

(5) When and where in the Borderlands timeline is this game set? During the Tales from the Borderlands SXSW panel, it was mentioned that the game takes place in Pandora after Borderlands 2 and its DLC.

    @Fredy31 Well, I'd actually play Borderlands 2 before the Presequel. It might be before part 2 in the timeline, but it came out after BL2 and you will understand more of it after playing Borderlands 2. – Izzo Mar 22 '15 at 21:00
