As Gearbox Entertainment has announced, a tabletop RPG based on the loot shooter Borderlands will be released in early 2021. Under the title "Bunkers and Badasses", the developers, together with Nerdvana Games and Leder Games, are launching a role-playing game that illuminates the world of Pandora from a completely new perspective. The Borderlands tabletop RPG is already available for pre-order.

The real kicker: The tabletop RPG is a game based on a game within a game. Bunkers and Badasses was introduced as part of the Borderlands 2 DLC Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep and is the Dungeons and Dragons version of Pandora. From the beginning of 2021, fans - like Tina, Lilith, Mordecai and Brick in the video game - can also plunge into the adventure, but not in front of the screen, but in the classic way on the gaming table at home.

Borderlands Tabletop: "Skag Shooting and Skeleton Looting"

As if Borderlands wasn't crazy enough as a video game, Gearbox Entertainment, Nerdvana Games and Leder Games are stepping it up a notch. The publishers turn an in-game idea into a real game, simply reversing the concept of Borderlands 2. In the DLC Tiny Tina's Storming of the Dragon Fortress, players were made a character in the in-game tabletop offshoot "Bunkers and Badasses". Now players can actually reenact the idea and control the characters they controlled back then. Understood?

With Bunkers and Badasses, fans can experience Pandora, the world of Borderlands, from a whole new perspective. You take on the role of one of ten new vault hunters, each with their own skill trees, which are based on the loot shooters Borderlands 1 and 2.

Two different versions are available, a standard set for around 60 US dollars and a deluxe edition, which costs around twice as much but is richly equipped. Included with the base game is the Bunkers and Badasses official rulebook, providing a variety of adventures for players to embark on, including the original story from Tiny Tina's Storming the Dragon Keep.

The deluxe edition is far more comprehensive and contains miniatures of the Vault Hunters as well as standees of opposing figures, as well as a battle map and other helpful elements that visualize the game and thus make it easier, especially for beginners. The tabletop RPG for Borderlands will be released in early 2021, The sets can be pre-ordered already - and a discount campaign for the deluxe version is running until the end of September.
