Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep gets standalone, "one-shot" version


The Borderlands DLC gets a Wonderlands standalone

Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep is one of, if not the most, well-remembered DLC additions in the Borderlands series. It was popular enough that Gearbox is currently working on a full game spiritual successor, and today, Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep is also getting a standalone version.

2K and Gearbox announced today that a standalone called Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep: A Wonderlands One-Shot Adventure is coming to PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam and Epic. And it’s available today, too.

As part of the launch, Assault on Dragon Keep is free on the Epic Games Store until Nov. 16, so roughly the next week. Otherwise, it’s going for $9.99 on the other storefronts.

Even as someone with a hot-and-cold relationship with the Borderlands franchise, Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep is a standout to me. It was impressive back in 2013, when it arrived as DLC for Borderlands 2. Not just for its Dungeons & Dragons referencing, mind you, but for how it tackled one of the big story developments in Borderlands 2, and how that affected its characters. Borderlands 2 in particular hit a high note for me with how it tackled some tougher material, and I liked Dragon Keep for how it kept that through-line going.

That said, it’s also an entire DLC featuring Tiny Tina. For some folks, that’s a deal-breaker. But hey, if you wanted to give it a shot and see if Borderlands meets D&D works for you, this is probably the best opportunity to do it. Plus, it ends up now acting as a predecessor to the upcoming Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. If you want to know how it all ties together, and learn a little Borderlands history in the process, seems like a good opportunity to do so.
