Tiny Tina's Wonderlands for PC is Timed Exclusive on Epic Games Store, Paid Upgrade for Next-Gen - News

by William D'Angelo , posted on 10 September 2021 / 2,023 Views

Publisher 2K Games and developer Gearbox Software yesterday announced Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands will launch for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via the Epic Games Store on March 25, 2022.

An FAQ for the game has now been posted revealing the PC version will be an Epic Games Store exclusive at launch and will release on other PC  digital storefronts later in 2022. 

Borderlands 3 came to Steam six months after launch, which means if the same deal is in place for Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands it would put the Steam release on September 25, 2022 or later.

Gearbox has also revealed in order to play the next-generation version of the game on the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X|S you will need to purchase the $70 Next-Level Edition. If you buy the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One version of the game it will not be optimized for the next-generation consoles. 

If you do want to upgrade from the PS4 or Xbox One version to the PS5 or Xbox Series X|S version you will need to pay an "additional cost."

You can read the FAQ below:

Borderlands 3 already left me with a bad experience and this game was pulling me back in. However, I will not spend $70 on a game just to have it day one. It has to be a very special game for me to do that. Final Fantasy XVI and a remake to The Legend of Dragoon/sequel are the only things that I would spend $70+ on for day one access.

Bit of an irrelevant opinion as I was never going to get this game, but if a game charges for the next-gen upgrade then I’m gonna make sure that I get the game second hand out of spite (looking at you EA).

Q: What is Tiny Tina's Wonderlands?

A: Tiny Tina's Wonderlands is a first-person looter shooter game that I won't be playing due to them opting out of Smart Delivery, among other anti-consumer practices.

There, I fixed that for you.

Curious, how are other publishers with a price delta between last-gen and current-gen dealing with this? Price upgrade? Buy the game again? Must buy a special edition that comes with last-gen and current-gen? I'm thinking games like NBA 2K22, Madden 22, Battlefield 2042, etc.?

I think Gearbox is the first, 3rd party to require people to buy them entirely separately.

So Take-Two, EA, etc., are offering paid $10-ish upgrades then? I did a web search but didn't find any press releases like that from them.
