Players have a conspiracy theory about bad Wonderlands DLC

This week Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands was released with its second DLC pack, The foodie’s bet. Wonderlands DLC has created a bit of a weird situation among fans, where the base game is celebrated, but the DLCs, which are basically just variants of Chaos Chamber that can be experienced in about ten minutes or so, are a far cry from the usual quality. Borderlands downloadable content.

I just read a new theory from the gaming subreddit that makes a lot of sense to explain what could have happened here.

The idea is that originally Wonderlands had four more traditional and important DLCs to strengthen the game. The problem? The base game ended up being too short, so the DLCs were rolled into the main game, and those Chaos Chamber “mirror” DLCs had to be designed to put Something in the Season Pass instead.

The four DLCs are fairly easy to spot, four distinct large areas that each come with their own main mission and group of side missions: Crackmast Cove, Sunfang Oasis, Mount Claw, and Tangledrift. These areas are notable for being outside of the main storyline and somewhat “optional” as you progress through the main quest. But in the Overworld, you find and unlock them and discover a big new area full of things to do.

Another proof is that the mirror content is encoded as “PLC” (post-launch content) instead of DLC. The theory also posits that Wonderlands, without these areas, was perhaps going to be sold as a $40 game with a $20 season pass. But instead it included those areas to be a $60 game (which I think is worth that price!), but still needed a season pass

But that’s the problem. The “Chaotic Great” edition of the game that includes the season pass is $30 more, or you can purchase all four DLC packs separately for $10 each. The problem is that the “replacement” DLC (PLC) isn’t even close to being worth that price, especially when we’ve passed the Borderlands 2 and 3 DLCs to compare it, which has been one of the best in the game. industry. Wonderlands itself is from a beloved Borderlands 2 DLC, Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep. The Borderlands 3 DLC was probably better overall than the main game.

So yeah, it definitely feels like something weird happened here, both with the season pass we got and the areas that could have been the original DLC. I think the main issue here is the price. Wonderlands’ $60 bundle that includes these four areas seems decent. But this $30 season pass including $10 DLCs that have less content than Borderlands’ old Headhunter packs is a big miss.

The ship sailed, but this theory makes the current situation much more logical. We’ll see if Wonderlands produces larger-scale content later now that it’s a success, but for now we still have two “mirrors” to go through.
