Having launched on other platforms to positive reviews (we scored it
a respectable 8.5/10), Tiny Tina's Wonderlands
is finally rocking Steam
where the game has been one of the most Wishlisted on the platform, and launches there for a limited time at a special price.
Here's the official skinny on what's going down come June 24 in Australia
and New Zealand
when the game is officially available on Valve
Since launching on other platforms earlier this year, critics and fans around the world have been enamoured with the delightful chaos from Tiny Tina’s unpredictable mind. With crossplay between PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, the Epic Games Store and now Steam, even more players can join in on the adventure together.
“Gearbox is all about one-of-a-kind entertainment experiences – with Wonderlands that meant creating a new take on a familiar genre,” said Randy Pitchford, founder of the Gearbox Entertainment Company. “Steam players are in for one heck of an adventure as they explore Tina’s off-the-walls imagination, and crossplay gives our fans even more ways to battle the Dragon Lord, no matter what platform they game on."
On Steam, players will have the choice between the Standard Edition or the Chaotic Great Edition. The latter comes with the Dragon Lord Pack of bonus content, as well as the Season Pass, which includes an extra playable class being released in a future update, the Butt Stallion cosmetic pack, and all four Mirrors of Mystery DLCs.
Mirrors of Mystery DLCs provide new ways to hunt for loot and cosmetics on your way to defeating the Dragon Lord, with challenging new dungeons such as Coiled Captors, Glutton's Gamble, and the brand new Molten Mirrors, releasing on June 24 on all platforms, including Steam.
In Molten Mirrors, players will battle Fyodor the Soul Warden, who lords over his horde of lost souls deep within his mountain stronghold. In order to break their chains, players need to defeat Fyodor’s murderous mechanized defences, including terror-powered turrets, blazing furnaces, and bone-crushing hammers, all while looting for new weapons, gear, and cosmetic items. Additional details about Molten Mirrors are available on the game's official website.
For owners of the Chaotic Great Edition or Season Pass, the fourth Mirror of Mystery DLC releasing later this year will also feature a brand-new playable class called the Blightcaller. This shamanic elementalist channels spirits and summons storms to wear down foes with poison and elemental damage. As the seventh class to be introduced to Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, the Blightcaller will bring even more player customization by further expanding the deep multiclass system in the game.
There's some additional info on saves and character progression, which is wholly transferable between Epic Games Store and Steam, but these will need to be done manually, details of which can be found here
In reviewing the game, Kosta wrote that:
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is a confident and very welcome step forward for the Borderlands series. It embraces its action-RPG roots in ways that feel fresh and familiar, and does so without being a detriment to the core concept of being an experience with a bazillion crazy guns to equip and have fun with.
And now with full cross-play support and the Steam platform, there's no better time to roll the dice on this epic Borderlands spin-off.
