Wonderlands is described as a “high-fantasy take on a looter shooter” featuring characters from the Borderlands games. Wonderlands will include a story-driven co-op campaign for up to four players, as well as repeatable end-game content, according to Gearbox.
“In this epic high fantasy take on the looter shooter genre, players can create and customize their own multiclass heroes as they loot, shoot, slash, and cast their way through outlandish monsters and treasure-filled dungeons on a quest to stop the tyrannical Dragon Lord,” reads Gearbox’s official synopsis.
“Bullets, magic, and broadswords collide across a chaotic fantasy world brought to life by the utterly unpredictable Tiny Tina, who makes the rules, changes the world on the fly, and guides players on their journey.”
The game’s cast includes captain Valentine (Andy Samberg), robot Frette (Wanda Sykes), and Tiny Tina (Ashly Burch), who serves as players’ guide through a “tabletop realm where rules rarely apply” as they seek to defeat the Dragon Lord (Will Arnett).
“Wonderlands is a culmination of over a decade of on-and-off development at Gearbox Software towards a Role-Playing Shooter set in a fantasy universe,” said Gearbox Entertainment founder Randy Pitchford.
“For me, bringing actual Borderlands guns to fight dragons, skeletons, goblins, and more in an original fantasy world imagined by the galaxy’s deadliest thirteen-year-old, Tiny Tina, as a new, full-featured AAA video game is a dream come true.”
David Ismailer, President at 2K added in a prepared statement: “Between the development talent at Gearbox and the undeniable star power of the cast, we couldn’t be more excited about this game.
“We’re always searching for compelling ideas and ways to build upon the strength of our existing IP, so we’re thrilled to help bring a passionate team of creatives together with a world and character that will surely resonate not only with our longtime fans but with new audiences as well.”
