Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands isn’t the first time the Borderlands first-person shooter franchise has delved into a realm of high fantasy – developer Gearbox Software first explored this genre in the Borderlands 2 DLC-turned-spin-off Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep in 2013. Nearly a decade later, Gearbox ventures back into the tabletop board game Bunkers & Badasses for a self-contained tale of swords, sorcery, and the power of stories. Though it’s inherited some of Borderlands’ more annoying quirks, Wonderlands is still a comfortably familiar experience that speaks to its passion for tabletop gaming.
As a standalone Borderlands spin-off, Wonderlands requires no knowledge of previous Borderlands games to jump into. Instead of focusing on a story about exterminators hunting down alien ruins harboring artifacts of incredible power, Wonderlands shifts the focus to recurring minor character Tiny Tina and her latest tabletop gaming session. All of this takes place in a game that closely follows Borderlands’ loot-and-shoot gameplay formula – constantly collecting new weapons, upgrading your character’s unique abilities, and facing hordes of enemies – and ongoing commentary from Tina, Valentine and Frette.
Tiny Tina is once again calling the shots as the Bunker Master, and alongside characters Valentine and Frette – voiced by Andy Samberg and Wanda Sykes – it’s up to you to become the doommaker destined to save the country from the threat of the evil dragon lords.
