fantasy spinoff Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands scored 8/10: “Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is a fantasy-themed Borderlands spin-off that’s hilarious, action-packed and silly, even if it plays it a little safe.” Gearbox’s Randy Pitchford said last year. ‘Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands’ was successful enough to start a new series“Future experiences are already in development.”
The last mainline “Brothers in Arms” game was in 2008 Comrades: Highway to Hell.
