An Adventure to Remember
Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep was a DLC to remember. Memorable enough, in fact, that it’s getting a whole game of its own – set to release next year. But to tide people over, Gearbox has come up with an idea – the DLC that inspired Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands has been transformed into a standalone title. And for a limited time, the game is freely available.
Currently exclusive to the Epic Games Store, Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep is free to pick up until November 16th – afterwards, it’ll cost around 10$. Curiously, the sale only seems to exist on Epic’s storefront, despite the game being released on PlayStation, Xbox, and Steam as well. It’s possible that, while the game is essentially an advertisement for Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, the “free” part of the promo came later on in the development/release cycle. The Epic Games Store’s had quite a few temporarily-free titles before, so they likely wanted to add this game to that list once they heard about Gearbox’s plan.
While the minimal price tag is nice, many Borderlands fans aren’t too happy with the game’s release model. Given that Gearbox is charging money for something that’s apparently been free several times over. A few fans wonder who the target audience for this even is – longtime fans are likely to be familiar with the DLC 8-year-old already, and new fans might not be interested in older content.
But if you’re part of the small group that this release is targeting, the “free” price tag should look pretty good. The classic DLC sent players on a wild ride – even by Borderlands standards – by throwing them into a D&D-like world DM’d by Tiny Tina herself. If you’re thinking about buying Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, but don’t entirely know what to expect, this release should give you an excellent hint at what might be in store.
