Borderlands teaser trailer could be for Borderlands 3, or something new

Gearbox Software has released a new Borderlands teaser trailer titled Mask of Mayhem. Is it teasing Borderlands 3, or an entirely new game?

We’re pretty sure Borderlands 3 is a thing. We’re also pretty sure it will be officially announced tomorrow, March 28, during the studio’s PAX East live stream. However, that doesn’t mean this video is about Borderlands 3.

The teaser trailer doesn’t show any gameplay, or anything else that indicates it’s title. All we see are characters, both familiar and new, frozen in various poses. By the end, everything comes together to create a giant psycho mask – one of the series most iconic visuals.

So it is impossible to tell if this is indeed Borderlands 3 or not. It could be anything set in the Borderlands world. It could be a Borderlands Battle Royale for all we know. It’s a real possibility, considering all the different characters we see in the video. Not necessarily the one we’re hoping for.

Gearbox’s PAX East live stream starts March 28, 2pm EDT / 11am PDT. We’ll be watching for more Borderlands news, and a few other games as well.
