Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep is being rereleased as a standalone ahead of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, and it’s free on PC for a limited time.
Borderlands 2’s acclaimed Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep DLC has been re-released as a standalone, and it’s free for PC users for a limited time in anticipation of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep was well-lauded for its Dungeons & Dragons references and fantasy in 2013. The Borderlands series oscillates between sci-fi and fantasy with crazy ease.
Borderlands 2’s Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep was initially released as a DLC expansion. It took the guise of a tabletop RPG session hosted by insane NPC Tiny Tina, with the Borderlands 2 characters playing more fantasy-flavored versions of themselves, departing from the main game’s sci-fi premise. While it was still a looter-shooter, with the series’ usual irreverence and humor, the location and framing allowed for a more meta-gaming experience, with the Borderlands heroes commenting on the game in fourth-wall-breaking moments. With the debut of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands only a few months away, now is a good opportunity to get a taste of what’s to come.
To make things easier, 2K Games is re-releasing Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep as a $10 standalone purchase (with a new suffix dubbing it A Wonderlands One-Shot Adventure) and PC fans can download the game for free for a limited time. Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep is available for free on the Epic Games Store until November 16 at 11 p.m. PST. After that, there’s no information on how much the game will cost in the Epic Games Store, but it’s $10 on every other platform, so that’s probably the case. Assault on Dragon Keep is a cheap (or free) method to get a sense of what to expect from Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands tale, and it doesn’t require any previous Borderlands experience.
Borderlands 3’s long-awaited release was a return to form, putting players back on Pandora and reuniting them with some old favorites while introducing some new ones. Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is an intriguing direction in which to take the series after Borderlands 3’s long-awaited release was a return to form, placing players back on Pandora and reuniting them with some old favorites while introducing some new ones. From the four original expansions to the more recent “Designer’s” and “Director’s Cuts” editions, Borderlands 3 has seen a lot of DLC. Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is currently unknown whether it will be as huge as a core Borderlands game or a larger spin-off building upon Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep. In any case, with Wonderlands classes like the Stabbomancer and the Brr-zerker sure to delight those who want a little more dragon-slaying in their Borderlands, it’s a fresh take on the genre.
With a new game and a movie planned to premiere next year, the Borderlands series shows no signs of slowing down. On the contrary, the series could be entering its most diversified year yet, with Assault on Dragon Keep and Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands for fantasy fans and the movie for sci-fi fans.
Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep: A Wonderlands One-Shot Adventure is available for the PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and PC.
