Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands release date, gameplay, and more

The full lowdown on Tiny Tina's Wonderlands, the fantasy Borderlands spinoff game.

Tiny Tina can be seen riding on a dragon.

Borderlands developer Gearbox took a drastic departure down the high-fantasy route in its spin-off from the popular RPG game series, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. Neither prequel nor sequel, Tina was finally granted her own unique adventure – though there were still plenty of big guns mixed in with the magical stuff.

With a star-studded cast which featured Andy Samberg, Wanda Sykes, and Will Arnett alongside Ashly Burch, who reprised her role as Tiny Tina, Gearbox pumped all kinds of firepower into the FPS game.

And with such a grandiose cast came a grandiose quest, as players were tasked with looting, shooting, and kabooming their way through legions of enemies, with the ultimate goal of defeating the imperious Dragon Lord. It might have sounded like a cliche tale, but Gearbox did a great job of setting it apart, as we explained in our Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands review.

Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands release date

Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands was released on Friday, March 25, 2022, for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S, and PC.

This came after the game was officially revealed by 2K on June 10, 2021, giving players on a short wait between the announcement and the full releases – which is quite a surprise these days.

Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands gameplay

Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands was a traditional Borderlands game in many ways, packed full of humor, guns, more guns, and a deep leveling system for a variety of different classes. However, it had some fantastical twists that set it apart from the rest of the series:

  • You could multiclass, just as you can in its Dungeons & Dragons inspiration
  • Spells instead of grenades
  • Classes and custom characters over fully realized characters
  • Melee weapons
  • An overworld map and levels rather than a semi-open world
  • Fantasy setting

The fantasy setting and its impact on the world structure was undoubtedly the biggest departure. Set inside Tiny Tina’s Bunkers & Badasses, Wonderlands took its D&D inspirations all the way, featuring an overworld map that you could explore to find extra levels and areas. This was a big departure from the semi-open world areas players had come to expect.

Well, that’s all you need to know about Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, the incredibly unique Borderlands spinoff.
