Wonderlands: Borderlands spin-off announcement is imminent


In the past few days there have been rumors about a new Borderlands game from Gearbox Software. An official confirmation has so far been pending, but it shouldn't be long in coming. At least a recent tweet of this year's Summer Game Fest indicates this.

Accordingly, the announcement of the "new adventure" by Gearbox Software and the publisher 2K Games is firmly planned for the Summer Game Fest. The tweet does not reveal any further details. However, it is very likely that it is the currently still secret Borderlands offshoot. If you believe the rumors that have been circulating so far, it is not about Borderlands 4, but a spin-off adventure that is probably a bit off the main series. According to the speculation, it is called either "Tiny Tina's Wonderlands" or just "Wonderlands", which should also be a pointer to the story of the game. The focus is on the very wacky Tiny Tina, known from earlier Borderlands episodes, who has a certain tendency towards chaos in general and explosives in particular. This character is very popular with the fans, he is also part of the planned film adaptation.

Gearbox confirms ‘Wonderlands’ will be revealed at Summer Game Fest

A teaser site for Borderlands spin-off ‘Wonderlands‘ has launched, leading to Gearbox and 2K Games confirming it will be making an appearance at Summer Game Fest at E3 this week.

The official teaser website at BeChaoticGreat.com hints at “a new adventure from Gearbox and 2K” and includes a countdown to the beginning of Summer Games Fest, which is planned for Thursday (June 10).

While we don’t know too much about the upcoming title, recent leaks and other tidbits of information can help to build expectations ahead of the full announcement.

If a recent trademarking move by Gearbox is anything to go by, we can expect the upcoming game to be called ‘Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands’.

From there, it’s safe to assume that fan-favourite Borderlands character Tiny Tina will be involved – though whether she will be available to play still remains to be seen.

As we know that Gearbox is already most likely working on the next full franchise entry Borderlands 4, ‘Wonderlands‘ will likely be similar to Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.

Instead of advancing the narrative behind the franchise, the Pre-Sequel was a shorter entry that explored the story of an existing character. If the upcoming announcement follows a similar narrative style, expect ‘Wonderlands’ to take a detour and explore Tiny Tina’s story.

Reddit leaks, verified by Bloomberg journalist Jason Schreier, have also suggested that ‘Wonderlands’ will follow the same core gameplay mechanics as previous Borderlands entries, which could suggest that it will launch with a choice of new class-based characters to choose from.

We’ll hear more on Thursday – if you’re hoping to catch the announcement live, you can visit the Summer Game Fest website for a rough schedule of events that run from June 10 to July 22. Likewise, our full roundup of E3 news, events, and rumours can be found here.

In other news, the same leak that correctly revealed Wonderlands also reports that the studio behind XCOM are working on a turn-based Marvel game.
