Mask of Mayhem teaser trailer reveals new Borderlands game

borderlands mask of mayhem

2K and Gearbox Software have released a new teaser trailer dubbed, “Mask of Mayhem.” It has gotten fans excited about the next Borderlands game, and it’s not outright saying it’s Borderlands 3. We see old and new characters from the franchise, so one can definitely speculate that it’s going to be an announcement for the third game in the series. PAX East is going to be held in Boston, Massachusetts, over the weekend, with the first day starting tomorrow. There’s a Gearbox PAX East panel where fans can livestream the panel tomorrow on March 28th at 11 a.m. PST / 2 p.m. EST.

There are a lot of characters featured in the Borderlands “Mask of Mayhem” teaser trailer with “Fools Rhythm” by Two Fingers playing in the background. The trailer moves fast, but if you look carefully, you can see a mask of Handsome Jack, Lilith, Sir Hammerlock, Ellie, Moxxi, Brick, Mordecai, and a grown-up Tiny Tina. There are also characters being worshipped by the Psychos.

There are also hidden messages sprinkled throughout the teaser trailer. There’s a SHiFT Code that reads: C35TB-WS6ST-TXBRK-TTTJT-JJH6H. If you input that for the PC version of Borderlands 2 or the Pre-Sequel, you’ll get the following message:

“Thank you for being excited enough to dissect the new bandit mask with the grace of Dr. Zed! As a reward, you have been granted Salvador’s Community Day skin and 5 Golden Keys! There are more skins to be granted, so good luck out there, Vault Hunter!”

Morse code is also used starting at the 16-second mark with a dot blinking on the top left corner of the screen. It says, “Count the sirens,” and in the Borderlands world, only 6 can exist at any given time. (Maya from Borderlands 2 and Lilith are Sirens.)

There’s also hidden braille that reads: “Like, Follow, and Obey”.

With the teaser trailer being called “Mask of Mayhem”, perhaps the game will be titled Borderlands 3: Mask of Mayhem. Let’s hope we’ll get a lot of information at the Borderlands PAX East panel tomorrow.
