Three Games To Try Before Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands
Try these Borderlands games as you warm up to the new release
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is almost upon us! The game was announced back in June 2021, and promises to take the traditional Borderlands formula and transmute it into a fantasy world. The cast for the game features talent such as Andy Samberg, so it’s no wonder people are excited for it, but we think there’s three games you should try before Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands to get a taste for the game and the world it presents to you.
Borderlands 2: Tiny Tina’s Assault On Dragon Keep
Quite the timely game, Tiny Tina’s Assault On Dragon Keep was a DLC pack for Borderlands 2 that was recently made into a standalone expansion. It’s also the spiritual beginning of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, the game that inspired it all. The titular Tiny Tina is running a Dungeons & Dragons game and you play as a Dungeons & Dragons creation inside the world, meaning Tina can change and shift everything at will. You could find an easy boss suddenly transformed into the most terrifying thing you’ve ever seen, or vice versa. It’s an incredibly fun gameplay twist, so sink your teeth into it before the release of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands.
Tales From The Borderlands
Tales From The Borderlands is a dramatically underrated title. It’s one of Telltale’s finest games, featuring the world of Borderlands transposed into an extremely emotional story with some really well developed characters. It’s interesting to consider that the only character from this title to be featured going forward was Rhys, who appeared in Borderlands 3. Yet the whole cast is utterly fantastic, with believable character relationships and wonderful development. Seriously, don’t sleep on this one.
Obviously you should play Borderlands 3. For starters, it’s the last game in the series before Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, so while it’s not like the games are exactly going to be too similar, it’s likely you’ll find similar gameplay systems throughout the game. It’s a fun and thrilling experience that’ll give you a lot of joy, especially if you play it in co-op with friends. Luckily, you can do that for literally the entire campaign.
