Tiny Tina’s Wonderland, a fantasy version of Borderlands, coming in early 2022

Gearbox and 2K revealed Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, a Borderlands spinoff adventure, at Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest on Thursday. The game features a star-studded cast, including Andy Samberg, Will Arnett, Wanda Sykes, and Ashley Burch, who will be reprising her Borderlands voice role of Tiny Tina.

Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is a high-fantasy take on Borderlands that, according to Burch, should remind players of the Borderlands 2 DLC Assault on Dragon Keep. While the game will include elements and characters from past entries in the Borderlands franchise, it is a stand-alone title. Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands‘ announcement shouldn’t come as a huge surprise, as the game’s existence was leaked recently.

The game’s packed cast of talented voices wasn’t expected at all, however. Samberg will be voicing Captain Valentine, while the robot Frette will be voiced by Sykes. Arnett will lend his gravelly voice to the game’s antagonist, the Dragon Lord.

Playing to its high-fantasy theme, players can expect to find spellcasting and character customization (likely wizard robes and barbarian armor) in Tina Tina’s Wonderlands. According to the game’s description, “bullets, magic, and broadsword collide across a chaotic fantasy world brought to life by the utterly unpredictable Tiny Tina, who makes the rules, changes the world on the fly, and guides players on their journey.” In all, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands sounds like a game of Dungeons & Dragons, just with machine guns and Tina as your dungeon master.

Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands doesn’t have a set release date, but will come out in early 2022 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store.

I still remember where I was when the Borderlands 3 trailer dropped. Fresh off my third or fourth replay of Borderlands 2 and its (literally) magical DLC, Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep, I watched the trailer in my college dorm room while on the phone with my friends. When the premiere finished, we all sat grinning ear to ear, babbling on about whether the next numbered entry in the franchise could live up to its lofty predecessor. Unfortunately, it didn't.

With Tiny Tina's Wonderlands, Gearbox has gone in a different direction. The game takes its cues from Assault on Dragon Keep, one of the most critically acclaimed DLCs of all time, and dramatically expands its scope and ideas into an entirely new package. Beyond the usual endless array of guns and loot, Wonderlands introduces RPG-style stats and classes to the franchise, making for a deeper -- if more complex -- experience.

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.
