The Tiny Tina's Wonderlands release date is here, with the fantasy-themed Borderlands spinoff game launching today (25th March).
Building on the Dungeons & Dragons-like mayhem of Borderlands 2's Escape from Dragonkeep DLC, Tiny Tina's Wonderlands brings the chaotic gunplay of the Borderlands franchise into a table-top fantasy game setting for a whole new story, infused with Tina's unique brand of energetic whimsy.
This brilliantly barmy concept will be backed up by an impressive cast, led by Mythic Quest's Ashly Burch in the title role of Tina (not long after we heard her as the lead in Horizon Forbidden West), with the likes of Andy Samberg, Will Arnett and Wanda Sykes taking on supporting roles.
As we learned in our Tiny Tina's Wonderlands developer interview, the game was developed entirely during lockdown stay at home conditions, which makes its magical departure from the franchise's established formula even more impressive.
As a largely positive consensus begins to appear on Metacritic, the first wave of Tiny Tina's Wonderlands reviews are looking pretty strong from here — IGN gave it an 8/10, for example, while GamesRadar and The Guardian both dished out four stars.

Tiny Tina's Wonderlands story and gameplay
In Tiny Tina's Wonderlands, players will once again be going into the bonkers mind of Tina and all the craziness that can be expected from that, and then some, will be headed our way.
This is a brand new story that will see players setting off on fantasy quests in a D&D-like game within a game. There will even be an over-world area that charts your progress between missions. Take a look at the Tiny Tina's Wonderlands gameplay trailer below to learn more:
Another thing we know is that players create their own characters for the story, which is a first for Borderlands, and all the heroes in the game will be customisable.
Grenade fans will probably be displeased to know that they won't be in the game – you'll be lobbing spells instead, which sounds like a fun change to us, and melee weapons will also be included.
There is a magical diamond binacorn called Butt Stallion as well, so make of that what you will!
