One of the biggest redeeming qualities of the Borderlands franchise is the excellent co-op action. Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands should be no different. Typically allowing for 4 player team play, the first person shooter easily lands itself as one of the greatest loot and shoot multiplayer games in existence. But there exist some caveats to the extensiveness of multiplayer. Will Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands cross play be supported? And what about couch co-op? These are important questions when purchasing the game.
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands will ship on March 25 with full cross play for all platforms at launch, including PlayStation.

According to Randy Pitchford on Twitter, Borderlands Tiny Tina’s Wonderalnds officially supports cross play across all platforms. This is amazing news for players, since those looking to play with their friends should easily be able to do so. Previously, many of the Borderlands games did not support cross platform play. The only instance prior was in Borderlands 3, but that was after the game’s initial launch, provided in an update. And even then, Playstation remained excluded from the cross platform play.
Therefore, the fact that Borderlands Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands support cross platform play shows how much the team behind the game busted their behinds to get the ball rolling. This time, even Playstation consoles are supported. Hopefully, it’ll stick that way.
Now, what about coach co-op?
Split screen co-op remains a console only feature. In other words, players on steam and epic games will need to play on separate devices. There are definitely work arounds to make co-op function on PC. But these are not officially endorsed or implemented into the game, and require stronger specs than the typical solo player experience.

The Borderland games began implementing 4 player split screen quite recently. Therefore, for the console releases, it’s highly likely that 4 player split screen will remain a viable option in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. This stands as great news, since couch co-op is insanely fun. Online play functionality is great too, but nothing can truly replace the vibe that is a Borderlands Lan Party. If this option of play is available for players, definitely try to do so.
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands Cross Play stands as amazing news for the fans of the franchise. Being limited from playing with friends due to platform differences really sucks. Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands Multiplayer features will be one of the greatest selling points for the game. Though PC will likely not support split screen in the base game, there are work arounds for it. So don’t fret about that too much. In addition, since Cross-play has been confirmed, don’t worry too much about corresponding consoles with friends and family. Just get whatever version that best suits the reader!
