Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands has some very convoluted pre-order bonuses

The official Twitter account for the upcoming Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands shared more information about the game’s various editions and pre-order bonuses. Ordering the game prior to launch will award exclusive gear to the player, and there are a variety of different editions of the game, each of which comes with unique in-game equipables. The information was detailed in a lengthy FAQ post on publisher 2K’s website that did little to clarify the extensive and confusing number of bonuses.

The sheer amount of content is overwhelming. Players who preorder a physical or digital copy of the game before launch will receive the Golden Hero Armor Pack, which can be applied to any armor set. Players can choose to buy Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands: Next-Level Edition, which is only available for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S and includes the full game, plus the Dragon Lord Pack. Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands: Chaotic Great Edition is also available for previous-gen consoles and PC, and includes the same Dragon Lord Pack as well as the game’s season pass. Despite being available for PC, the Chaotic Great Edition is still optimized for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.

The Dragon Lord Pack includes a variety of legendary weapons and spells, as well as outfit presets for the player. As of this writing, the season pass includes the Butt Stallion Pack, which contains gem-themed outfit presets and additional content, and access to “four content drops with new fantastical boss fights and whimsical challenges to be released after launch,” according to 2K. The season pass can also be purchased separately after the game’s release.

There’s also the Town Crier Pack, which grants even more bonus cosmetic items on launch and can only be obtained by subscribing to 2K’s newsletter and making a SHiFT account. Finally, the Wonderlands Treasure Trove does not include the game, but it does include a Butt Stallion plush, illustrations, enamel pins, and more. Confused yet?

Gearbox and 2K seem determined to make the game’s bonuses and editions as complicated as possible. It’s already difficult to justify preordering a game, but the complexity of Wonderlands‘ bonus structure makes it an even harder sell. If players are interested in an edition’s unique cosmetic items, they’ll have to triple-check to make sure they’re getting exactly what they want for their desired platform — and in the case of the Wonderlands Treasure Trove, make sure that they’re actually getting a copy of the game, too.

How to connect a PS5 controller to a PC
playstation 5 controller ps5

The PlayStation 5’s DualSense controller is one of the biggest leaps in controller design ever, adding advanced haptic feedback to Sony’s new console. For games that take full advantage of it, like Astro’s Playroom, the effect it has on the play experience can be truly game-changing. Like most other console controllers, the DualSense can also be used to play games on PC, though without the full benefit of features like variable-resistance triggers.

For those who want to get a little more mileage out of their DualSense, here’s how to connect the PS5 controller to a PC. While the good news is that the DualSense works just like any other controller on a PC, the bad news is that, well, the DualSense works just like any other controller. It may lack the PS5-specific features that make it such a standout when connected to a PC, but it’s also simple to set up and use, whether you want to connect using a USB cable or Bluetooth.
How to connect a PS5 controller to PC with USB
Connecting the PS5 controller to a PC with a USB cable will likely be the go-to option for most people, as it’s extremely easy to do and won’t run the risk of draining the DualSense’s battery during a play session. Just connect the DualSense to a USB-C to USB-A cable (like the one that comes with the PS5), and plug the other end into your PC. If your PC has a USB-C port, you can also use a regular USB-C cable. If you’re purchasing a new DualSense on its own, as opposed to using one that comes with the console, just be aware that it won’t come with its own cable.
How to connect a PS5 controller to PC with Bluetooth
If your computer has built-in Bluetooth capability or you have a separate Bluetooth adapter, you can also connect the DualSense wirelessly. The process is the same as connecting any wireless controller. Just hold the PS button and the Create button on the DualSense to start pairing. On your PC, navigate to the Bluetooth & Other Devices menu and click Add Bluetooth or other device, then select the Bluetooth option. When the connection is made, the PS5 controller will show up as Wireless Controller in the menu.
How to use a PS5 controller on PC with Steam
The major caveat to using a PS5 controller on PC is that not all games will recognize it natively. Fortunately, Valve added limited DualSense support to Steam almost as soon as the PS5 was released and is continuing to add features. All the Steam games with controller support are playable with the DualSense, and functions like motion controls, rumble, and the light bar should work just like they did for the PS4’s controller, though new features like adaptive triggers still aren’t working.

Diablo IV’s always-online play threatens an otherwise killer time
Diablo IV characters stand in a cathedral.

The always-online Diablo IV is right around the corner. I had an enjoyable time exploring the setting of Act 1, the eerie Fractured Peaks zone that’s heavily inspired by northeastern Europe, while going hands-on with the game's open beta. It all worked well when the servers didn’t completely break down, forcing me to wait in a queue. Its always-online sensibilities are definitely a bold move for the series – which has traditionally fashioned itself as an action RPG with both offline and online features.

Once expected beta server issues were resolved, I got some insight into how this massive beast of an online role-playing game will likely function when the servers finally go live in June. I still agree with the healthy room for concern outlined in Digital Trends' previous Diablo IV preview, but Diablo IV is as challenging and grounded as Diablo 2 and as dynamic and speedy as Diablo 3. A captivating story that goes heavier on its own themes than past installments gives a strong reason for its sprawling open world, and its hefty combat offers a balanced mix of challenge and brain-tingling action that drew me in.
