The Summer Games Fest has kicked off with a trailer for Gearbox’s new game, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. This is a high fantasy take on the looter shooter with an art style similar to Borderlands but it’s not part of the Borderlands universe. Tina will be guiding the narrative and taking the cast of characters through many adventures to ultimately defeat a dragon. The game is for up to four players and has well as repeatable end-game content.
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands has spellcasting, character customisation and many other features not found in your standard Borderlands title. It also has a stellar cast including Andy Samberg, Wanda Sykes, Will Arnett, and Ashly Burch,. Now if that all sounds very sensible then you don’t know Gearbox as the game will also feature a unicorn called Butt Stallion.
You want some blurb? Here’s some blurb!
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. 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.
“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,” said Gearbox Entertainment Founder and Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands Executive Producer Randy Pitchford. “For me, bringing actual Borderlands 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.”
The game is coming in 2022 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC (Steam / Epic Games Store), Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. More information can be found at playwonderlands.com but the site seems to have crashed.
