The big of expansion-sized DLC released for the seminal Borderlands 2 back in 2013 was Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep -- a high-fantasy take on Dungeons & Dragons with the series’ resident foul-mouthed teen Tiny Tina taking on the role of Dungeon Master. Apart from being a lot of fun it also told a heartwarming and memorable story. For many it still stands as one of the series’ finest hours. And now, with Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands that idea is being expanded into a full standalone release.
Check it out.
One that’s expected to launch in early 2022 for Xbox Series X and S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC (via Steam and the Epic Games Store). For fans of the Borderlands 2 DLC this description will read a lot like coming home.
In this epic high fantasy take on the looter shooter genre, players can create and customize their own multiclass heroes as they loot, shoot, slash, and cast their way through outlandish monsters and treasure-filled dungeons on a quest to stop the tyrannical Dragon Lord. Bullets, magic, and broadswords collide across a chaotic fantasy world brought to life by the utterly unpredictable Tiny Tina, who makes the rules, changes the world on the fly, and guides players on their journey.
Again, this is a new full-sized standalone release, a Borderlands spin-off offering the same four-player co-op mayhem albeit in a high-fantasy setting with dragons and skeletons and pits of fire. Even though players will have full control over creating their class ala old-school pen-and-paper RPGs, Wonderlands features a star-studded voice cast in an expanded world full of fantastical creatures and characters.
In addition to Ashley Burch returning as Tiny Tina, there’s Andy Samberg as headstrong captain Valentine, Wanda Sykes as the rule-obsessed robot Frette, and the always reliable Will Arnett on villain duties as the Dragon Lord.
“Wonderlands is a culmination of over a decade of on-and-off development at Gearbox Software towards a Role-Playing Shooter set in a fantasy universe,” said Gearbox Entertainment Founder and Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands Executive Producer Randy Pitchford. “For me, bringing actual Borderlands guns to fight dragons, skeletons, goblins, and more in an original fantasy world imagined by the galaxy’s deadliest thirteen-year-old, Tiny Tina, as a new, full-featured AAA video game is a dream come true.”
