Gearbox dives deeper into the highly anticipated new chaotic fantasy looter shooter
Today, we officially revealed the first look at gameplay for Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands and set pre-orders live. It’s a significant milestone for our team, and we’re just scratching the surface! Developing a world that exists inside the chaotic mind of someone like Tiny Tina gave us the license to build a lot of wild ideas and explore crazy ways of bending the rules of traditional fantasy while mixing it with the classic. What results is an adventure full of whimsy, wonder, and high-powered weapons, and we have so much more to show you before the game launches on March 25, 2022. For now, though, let’s dive into this trailer.
The trailer opens with Tiny Tina welcoming you to our new fantasy world amidst the threat of the Dragon Lord. Our tyrannical villain is obsessed with ruling all of the Wonderlands, and Tiny Tina is the disorderly guide leading you through as she sometimes changes the world on the fly. We know many love Tiny Tina (and so do we), but for those who’ve never experienced her before, we’re excited to introduce you to her endearing, unpredictable nature.
The footage is packed with shots to pause and give a second look, including some of the epic settings you’ll get to play in, from majestic towns to mushroom forests, foreboding fortresses, and more. The world is a wild and slightly warped take on high fantasy, so we were able to completely let our imaginations run wild. You also catch glimpses of the Overworld about halfway through the trailer. This is, essentially, our interactive tabletop zone, which players can explore as they discover dynamic encounters and traverse between all key locations. Old school J-RPG fans, we see you.
During your epic quest to defeat the Dragon Lord, you’ll encounter a wide variety of monsters, from sentient smack-talking skeletons to land-roaming sharks to colossal bosses. The trailer shows off the incredible arsenal you will have at your disposal, with devastating spells, powerful guns, melee weapons, and unique skills for frenetic first-person battles. We want you to explore and try all the different ways to use your firepower.
In that spirit, today’s trailer teases a significant pillar of the Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands experience: creating your own hero. We’ll have much more to share about this in the future, but we’ve built a multiclass system that lets you mix and match six unique character skill trees, all with their own awesome abilities. You can also customize how your players look and sound. You can do all this solo or party up with up to three friends for four-player co-op. We’re excited for you to find your unique playstyle, discovering how you want to experience the game.
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands releases worldwide on March 25, 2022, and we can’t wait to share more details with you in the months ahead.
