Watch it live on Twitch.

Borderlands 3

Publisher 2K Games and developer Gearbox Software will debut the first gameplay of Borderlands 3 during a Twitch live stream on May 1 at 10:00 a.m. PT / 1:00 p.m. ET following a 30-minute pre-show, the companies announced.

After the presentation, which will feature commentary from the Gearbox Software development team on “everything from the new Vault Hunters and their respective skills to interplanetary travel and sweet, sweet loot,” the embargo will lift on “literally hundreds of your favorite live streamers playing and sharing their impressions of Borderlands 3 for the first time.”

2K Games and Gearbox Software also teased that the Borderlands 3 box art contains some hidden codes that have yet to be cracked.

“Despite some incredible internet sleuthing, countless questions raised by you, the amazing Borderlands community, remain unanswered,” reads the news post. “When will we learn more about the four new Vault Hunters? Who exactly are the Calypso Twins? Who’s the young girl bumping fists with Maya? And how the heck do guns grow legs?! We’re excited to answer at least some of these questions and lots more during the Borderlands 3 worldwide gameplay reveal event on May 1.”

Borderlands 3 is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 13.
