As a direct sequel to the Dungeons & Dragons-inspired Tiny Tina’s Assault On Dragon Keep DLC for Borderlands 2, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands leans even further into the structure of tabletop roleplaying games for its gameplay. Wonderlands incorporates a more robust character creator, the option to multiclass, and a whole lot of other mechanics and features that D&D fans will likely recognize.
The character creator in Wonderlands represents one of the biggest departures from the structure of the Borderlands games. Wonderlands doesn’t feature established characters. Instead, you customize your own hero, including their race, physical appearance, voice, and personality.
“Your voice, your appearance, all of that is independent,” Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands senior producer Kayla Belmore told GameSpot. “You get to choose your own voice and some other fun stuff that we can’t quite dive into yet, but it goes into even your character’s personality, not just aesthetics, and it’s all independent. You could look and sound however you want within those sets of choices. We don’t really tie the player into any one thing. Not even every feature is humanoid–you can have shark fins on your head or look like an orc.”
