Gearbox Entertainment's Borderlands franchise is expanding with another spin-off with Tiny Tina's Wonderlands next year. Described as a high fantasy take on a looter shooter, the title was announced today at the Summer Game Fest Kickoff presentation. 2K is publishing the game. Check out the announcement trailer below.
The game is inspired by Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep, the expansion pack for Borderlands 2 that sent players on a D&D-themed adventure in search of dragons to defeat and treasure to collect. In a similar fashion to the expansion, Tina can alter the setting and world of Wonderlands as the campaign goes on.
The standalone experience will feature four-player co-op and fully customizable characters with multiple classes to opt into, which will fit together with the tried-and-true Borderlands gunplay plus magic. Alongside Ashly Burch as the voice of Tina, a new cast of voice actors are joining the project including Andy Samberg, Wanda Sykes, and Will Arnett.
"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," Gearbox founder Randy Pitchford adds. "For me, bringing actual Borderlands guns to fight dragons, skeletons, goblins, and more in an original fantasy world imagined by the galaxy's deadliest 13-year-old, Tina Tina, as a new, full-featured AAA video game is a dream come true.
Gearbox will have more to share about Tiny Tina's Wonderlands later this summer, and the game is supposed to release in early 2022 across PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.
