Borderlands 2’s best DLC rereleased as a one-shot adventure

Gearbox and 2K have announced that Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep, a DLC expansion for Borderlands 2, is now available to purchase as a stand-alone “one-shot” adventure ahead of the upcoming Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands.

Assault on Dragon Keep: A Wonderlands One-Shot Adventure is $10, the same price as the original DLC, and includes all of the original’s gameplay alongside new loot and cosmetics. Players will not need to own Borderlands 2 in order to play the title. The game is available to purchase for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 via backward compatibility, as well as Steam. The game is also available on the Epic Games Store, where it will be free to claim until November 16.

Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep is the first time a Dungeons and Dragons-style campaign was featured in the Borderlands series and is the biggest inspiration for Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. The story follows Tiny Tina’s Bunkers and Badasses game and features other members of the Borderlands 2 cast as she works to process the death of one of the game’s major characters.

The original DLC was lauded for its unique mechanics and unusually deep story, and received excellent reviews when it released, with some even calling it one of the best DLCs ever released for any game. Assault on Dragon Keep: A Wonderlands One-Shot Adventure promises to keep all the chaos and feeling of the original while hyping players up for the release of Wonderlands.

Randy Pitchford, the executive producer on Assault on Dragon Keep, called it “one of the most important pieces of content Gearbox has ever imagined” in a press release. While Wonderlands looks to emulate and expand on the celebrated DLC with its style and storytelling, it’s undeniable that the game will have big shoes to fill due to Assault on Dragon Keep‘s enduring legacy.

Assault on Dragon Keep: A Wonderlands One-Shot Adventure is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, Steam, and the Epic Games Store.

Borderlands 3 feels like more of the same, but that’s a good thing
leaked borderlands 2 dlc to bridge 3

There's a certain moment when playing a Borderlands game where it clicks, when you finally see why so many hold the series in such high regard. What first seems like a mindless shooter soon becomes an exhilarating stream of enemies along with rewarding and randomized loot. So far, Borderlands 3 is proving to be the same satisfying loot shooter as its predecessor, but small changes and neat additions make for a smoother experience while keeping the charm the series has always been known for.

After not having played a Borderlands game in some time, I had that "click" moment when I played a hands-on demo of Borderlands 3 at E3 2019. It was shortly after I got the hang of the new slide mechanic and landed two snazzy headshots with my shotgun. It felt smoother than ever, and the character models and environments were sharper, but nothing stood out as game changing. You get your waypoint, you mow down enemies as you follow the path, and you defeat the boss at the end. It's your standard Borderlands fare. It's still just as fun, but nothing revolutionary.
It's more Borderlands and that's okay

The last main entry in Gearbox Software's postapocalyptic franchise Borderlands was released way back in 2012. It was met with rave reviews, huge sales figures, and more post-launch content than you could swing a Claptrap at.

The series has since expanded with a pair spin-offs: 2K Australia's Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! and Telltale's Tales from the Borderlands, but fans have eagerly anticipated the sequel to the last main entry looking for closure to its cliffhanger ending and a modern spin on its addictive loot shooter game mechanics.
