Gearbox introduces classes and locations from the Borderlands offshoot


Gearbox Entertainment has announced on the official website of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands (from 53,99€ at pre-order) reveals how to build a hero in the looter shooter using the character editor and multi-class system. Six character skill trees can be mixed. The classes include, for example, the furious assassins with the title “Stabbomancers” with their insidious stealth attacks or the icy melee warriors “Brr-Zerkers”.

The upper world is traveled in the style of tabletop role-playing games. Among the scenes are places such as the once thriving town of Brighthoof in the realm of the gleaming “Butt Stallion Castle”, which has recently been under attack by “nefarious adversaries”. Also included are the Sunfang oasis in the desert as well as a huge “Tangledrift” beanstalk with its own ecosystem and homes up above the clouds.

The aggressive monsters include, for example, legged sharks or conscious skeletons from the skeleton army. The official website explains:

“The Wonderlands allows you to explore fantastical locales connected by a vast Overworld and, alongside powerful guns, introduces spells and melee weapons to your expansive arsenal:

  • The Overworld is an unmistakable nod to tabletop gaming, which gives players a third-person, bird’s-eye view as characters sprint around Tina’s meticulously crafted game board. Your character’s heroic proportions are shrunken down, allowing you to explore the many nooks and crannies of the game board. Some discoveries might be minor—a shortcut here, a smattering of gold-filled chests there—but you could end up stumbling onto an entirely optional area that some adventurers might miss entirely;
  • Spellcasting is a blast in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, with most spells having short cooldowns that let you frequently fire magic from your fingertips. Some spells will make short work of enemies, roasting them with fire or sending them flying with a mini tornado; others offer more utility, like giving you and your allies a bit of protection or reduced cooldowns;
  • Melee combat completes the combat trifecta of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. In addition to your guns and spell loadout, you’re able to keep a dedicated melee weapon constantly equipped and ready to use in combat. It’s not likely to take precedence over the gun in your right hand and the spell in your left, but weaving a few close-up strikes into the flow of combat can go a long way.”
