Looking to get stuck into co-op with a friend or two in Tiny Tina's Wonderlands? Here's what you need to know.

Gearbox Software's latest action FPS, Tiny Tina's Wonderlands, is finally here. This Borderlands spin-off and success to Borderlands 2: Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep has seen fans creating their own hero to journey through the chaotic and dangerous realm of the Wonderlands.

Tiny Tina's Wonderlands can be enjoyed as a solo adventure or through co-op for up to four players, using both online or offline split-screen multiplayer. But, the co-op feature isn't immediately available to players. Instead, there are a few prerequisites to undertake before it becomes available.

How to Enable Co-Op in Tiny Tina's Wonderlands

First, in order to unlock the ability to play co-op, players will need to have completed the game's opening prologue. This can take roughly 30 minutes or so, but it's a necessary step in order to open up the world of the Wonderlands.

As you progress through the prologue, fighting your way through ruins and skeletal enemies, you'll eventually come across a treasure chest containing a Ward inside. Picking up this item not only grants players with a shield, but it enables both co-op and crossplay multiplayer.

With this now enabled, players can press start and head to the 'Social' tab. Here, players will need to select "Find SHiFT Friends" and enter in their friend’s SHiFT name, adding them as a friend. Doing this enables you to invite the friend to your game. It doesn't matter what platform they'll be playing, as the game's crossplay function makes this pretty smooth. Alternatively, players can head to matchmaking to be paired with someone random of a similar level.

Tiny Tina's Wonderlands is available now on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Windows PC.
