Just before the game was released, we learned that Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands will include Crossplay for PC, Xbox, Stadia and PlayStation (the latter was not possible in Borderlands 3). This was fantastic news for fans who just want to play with their PlayStation-owning friends.
When you launch Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands for the first time, you will be asked if you want to allow Crossplay through the Cheating system. If you agree and register, you will be able to play with people on other platforms! We will explain in detail how to do this.
Start by looking at all network and social settings. They will allow you to customize who you will interact with and communicate with in the game. Essentially, do you want only people you know to play the game, or not?
After that, you can click on the small group of buddies with a plus sign in the upper right corner of the main menu or the pause menu to access other multiplayer options. You will notice that there is a “Codes” section here, which allows you to connect a Codes account to the game so that you can receive additional rewards. At the time of this writing, it doesn’t appear to be necessary to do this in order to play with other players.
When hosting a party, whether it’s made up of friends or strangers, you can customize the party settings using the gear icon in the pause menu or the main menu.
Privacy settings are self-explanatory:
- Only for friends
- For invitees only
- Open to the public
- Only for locals
- LAN game
The group mode determines how the farm will be distributed:
- Cooperation (each gets their own loot)
- Cooperation (the first to get to the loot gets the loot)
How to play with friends in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands
In order to play with friends, you need to find friends!
It’s simple: go to the multiplayer settings by clicking on the same button and check your squad. To add a friend, just make sure they already have the game and then enter their display name.
You’ll search your display name and find the person you’re looking for, then simply send them a friend invite! (The same way you can block people if, God forbid, you ever need to do so). As soon as someone appears in the list of friends, he will appear in your registry and you can check if he is online or not.
To add a friend to your party in the game, you just need to invite him through this menu.
In addition to the usual parties, in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands you have the option to passively tell your friends about what you do. You can edit your status, which consists of two parts:
- Do you need help
- What kind of content do you make.
Content options include:
- Main quests
- side quests
- Campaign objectives
- Run on the boss
- Farming wanders
When your friends check their registry, they will be able to see the status you have set. If you say you need help, they may offer to join your party! Even if you said you didn’t need help, someone might text you saying they’re working on the same content as you.
This system means you don’t have to actively search for parties, but you also don’t mind joining them or getting help from a friend who happened to be online at the same time as you.
How to play with strangers in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands
If you don’t have any friends (or you’re just playing at 3am and they’re all asleep), you can also use the in-game matchmaking system to form a party with strangers. To start matchmaking, you need to decide where you are going to play – Campaign or Chaos Chamber.
Campaign matchmaking is available as soon as you start playing Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. It allows players to complete the main quest and the game world.
The matchmaking system in the Chamber of Chaos becomes available only after the completion of the Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands campaign. In it, you test your skills against particularly difficult opponents and can adjust the “chaos level” as you succeed to make the encounter harder and harder.
