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.

Gearbox and 2K have revealed two more character classes and information about multiclass potential in the upcoming Tiny Tina's Wonderlands. In a new gameplay trailer, the companies showed off the Graveborn and the Spore Warden, bringing the number of potential classes in the game to six. The trailer also revealed "multiclassing" will be possible in Wonderlands: By combining two classes and their traits and abilities, players can create hybrid classes and have access to more abilities and traits than ever.

PS Plus members get Borderlands 2’s best DLC ahead of Wonderlands

Sony has revealed the PS Plus lineup of games for February 2022, and it includes Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep: A Wonderlands One-Shot Adventure, EA Sports UFC 4, and Planet Coaster: Console Edition.
Overall, it's a pretty odd and underwhelming month for the service after a strong showing in January. The PS4 version of Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep is a standalone version of the best DLC for Borderlands 2. It's so good that it's getting a full spin-off with Tiny Tina's Wonderlands this March and got a standalone release in November 2021 to build hype for the new game.

That said, the DLC was also included in Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, which was free with PS Plus in June 2019. Those who have been subscribed to PS Plus for a while may already have access to this game on PS4, which is the version Sony is giving away on PS Plus. While Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep is one of the best DLCs of the past decade, it's a really weird choice all-around for PS Plus.
Meanwhile, UFC 4 is EA's latest UFC-branded mixed-martial-arts sports game and was released in 2020. It contains the career and multiplayer modes players have come to expect from sports games but doesn't contain EA's controversial Ultimate Team mode.
Finally, Planet Coaster: Console Edition is a theme park construction and management game where players get to create and manage parks with wild roller coasters and themes. For fans of the classic RollerCoaster Tycoon games, Planet Coaster is the best modern interpretation of that formula. Keep in mind that only the PS5 version of the game will be available through PS Plus. 
These PS Plus titles will be available from February 1 until February 28, 2022.
