Borderlands gets a fantasy spinoff with Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands

Borderlands’ Tiny Tina is getting her own spinoff game, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, Gearbox announced at the Summer Games Fest Kickoff livestream. Gearbox and 2K will launch the fantasy-based shooter in early 2022 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC (via Steam and the Epic Games Store), Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.

In Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, players will build, customize, and control their own characters, and each character can fit into multiple classes. The game will feature the familiar Borderlands gunplay and weaponry with a fantasy setting, letting players blow up dragons with rocket launchers.

Tiny Tina is in charge of her game, and can change the world and setting at will — similar to her D&D-themed expansion for Borderlands 2, Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep. Ashly Burch returns to voice Tiny Tina, alongside new cast members Andy Samberg as Captain Valentine, Wanda Sykes as Frette the robot, and Will Arnett as the Dragon Lord himself.

According to Gearbox founder Randy Pitchford, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands has been in and out of development for over 10 years. “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,” said Pitchford.

According to Gearbox, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is a full-length adventure and includes a campaign, four-player co-op, and endgame content to keep players engaged.

Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep was the best expansion. I’ll come back to Borderlands for this.

I enjoyed playing split screen with my gf on Borderlands but I’m more of a fantasy fan so I’m all over this.

I’m in

Do people actually like Tiny Tina? Ashley Burch is obviously a legend, but I find everything about that character irritating.

You certainly aren’t alone; people have been complaining about Tina since 2012. I love her, though, and she’s definitely popular within the fandom! I think in general her intro in BL2 is a good litmus test for whether you’ll find the writing in this series to be charming or unbearable.

I find Tiny Tina to be a character you either really like or really don’t like with very little between the two.

It kinda broke my brain watching Burch talk about the game on stage after having watched Mythic Quest.

I like where they’re going with this but I also kind of wish that they didn’t have to cash in on riding on the backs of Borderlands for it to happen.

What started as a DLC for season 2…

Looking forward to it, but they better do couch co-op better on this one than they did on BL3 or I give up on consoles!! Is couch co-op not getting any love in development budgets? The huge numbers of ridiculous bugs that go enormous periods without resolution are just crazy nowadays. In BL3 they’ve still never fixed the problem of disappearing names and missing downed-partner notification that has been there since day 1.

But heck, at least they have couch co-op where most other games don’t even put it in anymore…

I hope this trend of ignoring couch co-op is just a temporary hiccup in consoles… My partner of 15 years and I are sick of being across the room wearing headphones to game!!!

Some developer company out there needs to dominate this huge crucial gaming niche now that everyone is failing to address it.
