Developer Gearbox and publisher 2K Games officially revealed a new game during Summer Game Fest titled Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. It’s a spin-off of the Borderlands series, which is set to release in early 2022. Wonderlands features voice acting from Andy Samberg, Wanda Sykes, Will Arnett, and Ashley Burch. Burch returns to voice Tiny Tina’s character. Although this game has a connection to Borderlands, it’s not considered a Borderlands title.
“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.”
It’s been described as a “fully standalone” game and features co-op for up to four players, as well as “repeatable end-game content. The trailer shows off the setting for game and circles around the celebrity cast.
Andy Samberg voices the character Valentine, a captain, while Wanda Sykes take on the role of robot Frette. Ashley Burch voiced Tiny Tina in the original games and is returning for Wonderlands. Meanwhile, Will Arnett is playing the bad guy (of course) by the name of Dragon Lord. Other characters include the lute-playing Barbarian and the Fairy Punchfather, although Gearbox did not clarify who would be voicing them.
“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.”
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC through both Steam and Epic Games Store.
