Gearbox revealed Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands: Coiled Captors, the first DLC expansion for the quirky spin-off, and announced it will release on Apr. 21.
Along with the announcement, Gearbox explained what players can expect from the first of four planned expansions:
Eons ago, the Coiled naga got the biggest catch of all: an old god! They trapped the being within the sharp-toothed, leathery-skinned body of a mighty seawarg, caging it deep within an icy mountain. Only you have the power to free the humiliatingly named “Chums” from his fleshy prison—but doing so means wading through wintery wastelands, arid ruins, and flooding caverns full of enemies.
You’re caught in the middle of a raging battle between slithering Coiled and angered denizens of the briny deep. The only way out is through.Gearbox
Coiled Captors is accessed via Vesper’s first Mirror of Mystery, which is found in the eerie Dreamveil Overlook, just outside of Brighthoof on the Overworld. The enemies within have a baseline level of 13, and will scale to your Fatemaker’s level beyond that.
Access to Coiled Captors and other Mirror of Mystery content is granted by the Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands Season Pass or individual purchase. The Season Pass itself is included in the Chaotic Great Edition and can also be purchased separately.Gearbox
In addition to new adventure, there will also be a three week long event that starts with its release.
For three consecutive weeks following the launch of Coiled Captors, “Chums” will take on an even mightier form once defeated. With each transformation, he’ll learn new attacks and abilities that’ll test the mettle of even the most stalwart Fatemakers. To make matters even more challenging, dying even once during your battle against “Chums” flings you back out of the mirror and onto your defeated, likely bruised butt. You’ll have to fight your way back through the entire dungeon if you’re hoping for a rematch.
Below is a planned schedule for when “Chums” takes on new, deadlier forms.* (Note that he’ll only grow into a new form if you’ve already defeated the previous one—and if you take on Coiled Captors after these dates have passed, you’ll still need to defeat all four forms in order to hear Vesper’s full story.)
First Form: 9:30 AM PT on April 21
Second Form: 9:30 AM PT on April 28
Third Form: 9:30 AM PT on May 5
Final Form: 9:30 AM PT on May 12Gearbox
Players can also expect new content from the Chaos Chamber as well:
Overcoming the challenges of Coiled Captors will also add its content to the pool of random possibilities in the endlessly replayable Chaos Chamber. All told, completing Coiled Captors will add five fresh level layouts and “Chums” himself to the list of chaotic variables.

Expect all of this and more when Coiled Captors releases Apr. 21.
