Tiny Tina's Wonderlands Is A Borderlands Spin-Off That's Completely Standalone
A Borderlands spin-off focused on Tiny Tina is coming in 2022, featuring actors Andy Samberg, Wanda Sykes, Will Arnett, and Ashly Burch.
Developer Gearbox and publisher 2K Games officially revealed a new game, Tiny Tina's Wonderlands, during Summer Game Fest. A spin-off of Borderlands scheduled to launch in early 2022, Wonderlands features the voices of Andy Samberg, Wanda Sykes, Will Arnett, and Ashley Burch, who returns to voice the titular Tiny Tina. And despite its connection to Borderlands, it's not considered a Borderlands game.
"In this epic high fantasy take on the looter shooter genre, players can create and customize their own multiclass heroes as they loot, shoot, slash, and cast their way through outlandish monsters and treasure-filled dungeons on a quest to stop the tyrannical Dragon Lord," reads a line from the game's description. "Bullets, magic, and broadswords 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."
Described as a "fully standalone" game, Wonderlands features co-op for up to four players and "repeatable end-game content." A trailer for the game shows off its wild setting and focuses on the celebrity cast.
Andy Samberg voices the captain character Valentine, while Wanda Sykes plays the robot Frette. Ashly Burch, who voiced Tiny Tina in the original games, is returning for Wonderlands. Will Arnett, meanwhile, plays the bad guy--Dragon Lord. Other characters featured in the game include the lute-playing Bardbarian and the Fairy Punchfather, though Gearbox did not say who will voice them. All are familiar with comedy, and Burch plays a major role in the Apple TV+ series Mythic Quest.
“Between the development talent at Gearbox and the undeniable star power of the cast, we couldn’t be more excited about this game," 2K president David Ismailer said. "We're always searching for compelling ideas and ways to build upon the strength of our existing IP, so we’re thrilled to help bring a passionate team of creatives together with a world and character that will surely resonate not only with our longtime fans but with new audiences as well."
The new "fantasy-fueled adventure" is coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC through both Steam and the Epic Games Store.
