The Borderlands universe is expanding, or rather welcoming a whole new universe, with the announcement of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. The upcoming spin-off takes place in his own fantasy version of Borderlands, where many famous faces are present. While the setting may be quite a transition from the post-apocalyptic sci-fi story Borderlands, it retains the zany characters and chaotic narrative for which the franchise is known.
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands will be a looter shooter with the usual genre achievements: a story campaign that players can control solo or with friends, followed by highly replayable end content.
Tiny’s release of Tina’s Wonderlands is scheduled for early 2022. It will be available for PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S / X and for PC via Steam and the Epic Games store. Once released, the game will be continuously supported by Gearbox and 2K developers.
Interestingly, this new looter shooter was part of it development of switching on and off over decades; in other words, Gearbox wanted to create this version of the game from the beginning. Their vision of a “hero shooter” is what originally informed about the design of Borderlands and effectively gave birth to the looter shooter genre. In the alternate universe, Wonderlands could have been the original vision of the franchise, and we would only now gain a sci-fi spinoff.
