Borderlands Returns to the Original Gaming Platform: The Table
Gearbox took a huge dump of content on the stage of their PAX East panel. The parent of the Borderlands series announced Borderlands 3, a modern console release of Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition, as well as a 4K update for Borderlands: The Handsome Collection. The Borderlands: GotY Edition also comes with Tales From the Borderlands. That’s literally all the Borderlands titles so far. Gearbox did not stop there. They also announced their own… tabletop game? Yup, a Borderlands board game. They should have called it Boarderlands. Missed opportunity.
The board game is called Tiny Tina’s Robot Tea Party. It stars everyone’s favorite adorable little psycho and everyone’s not-favourite uni-wheeled robot. The concept and name is in reference to the Tiny Tina missions in Borderlands 2 when the player first meets her. The premise of the game is for players to be the first to create their own Claptrap robot to fill the final guest spot for Tiny Tina’s Tea Party. Players must not just be build their claptrap the quickest, but they must also use abilities to prevent other players from making progress in their own build. Tiny Tina’s Robot Tea Party has been made by Gearbox and XYZ Game Labs.
I guess it does not take as long to develop board games as it does video games. despite being announced two days ago, Tiny Tina’s Robot Tea Party can already be purchased. PAX East-goers can buy it at XYZ Game Lab’s booth in Boston. If you are not there, it can also be ordered on the official website. “WHO’S READY FOR A MOTHA-HUMPIN’ TEA PARTYYYY?!”
