Though we’re not likely to get a Borderlands 4 anytime soon, Gearbox Software is keeping busy with the right kind of spin-off.
Earlier today, the Summer Game Fest revealed the next chapter in the series, focusing on the young troublemaker that has been in the Borderlands series for years. Tiny Tina will headline her self-titled Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, which is currently in the works at the developer. The game will be published by 2K, and will arrive sometime in early 2022 on PlayStation and Xbox consoles, as well as on PC via Steam and Epic Games Store.
“Wonderlands is a culmination of over a decade of on-and-off development at Gearbox Software towards a role-playing shooter set in a fantasy universe,” Gearbox founder Randy Pitchford said in a statement. “For me, bringing actual guns to fight dragons, skeletons, goblins, and more in an original fantasy world imagined by the galaxy’s deadliest thirteen-year-old, Tiny Tina, as a new, full-featured AAA video game is a dream come true.”
Ashly Burch, once again portraying the pint-sized terror, provided more detail during the Game Fest presentation. “People that love Borderlands are going to find lots of elements to love about Wonderlands, but it’s its own thing–Tiny Tina’s got her own thing going on now. So it’s got its own mechanics, there’s spellcasting, you can customize your character this time.”
Joining Burch in the cast is Andy Samberg (of Brooklyn Nine Nine fame), Wanda Sykes and Will Arnett (from The Lego Batman Movie).
But, no, you don’t need Borderlands 3 to enjoy it. 2K noted that Wonderlands “is a full standalone experience with a rich, story-driven co-op campaign for up to four players, as well as repeatable end-game content.”
We’ll see how the game looks in the months ahead. For now, enjoy the havoc-filled trailer below!
