Watch Today's Borderlands 3 Gameplay Here and Be Ready for Lots of Claptrap

The first Borderlands 3 gameplay footage is premiering today and you can watch it right here.

Gearbox is hosting a massive Borderlands 3 unveiling today, promising a livestream of brand-new gameplay footage. You can check out the footage right here on USG when it goes live at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET.

Today, Gearbox is hosting a massive livestream event for Borderlands 3 on Twitch and directly on Borderlands' website. Popular livestreamers will be playing Borderlands 3 on camera, and it will be a first-look at how the gameplay, and more importantly, the gunplay is like on Gearbox's latest loot shooter.

Gearbox hasn't officially announced what fans will see during today's livestream. But considering there's only one cinematic trailer available for Borderlands 3 presently, we can hopefully expect a bunch of new footage and info.

Where to Watch Today's Borderlands 3 Livestream

You can watch today's Borderlands 3 gameplay reveal livestream on either Twitch or Gearbox's official Borderlands website. For your convenience, here's the Twitch livestream below so you can see all the new footage right here.

Gearbox, 2K, and Twitch are also premiering a new Twitch function with today's Borderlands 3 livestream called ECHOcast. This plug-in allows viewers to directly interact with the various Borderlands 3 livestreams. Viewers can go to their favorite streamer who's participating in today's reveal event and directly look into their Borderlands 3 loadout, character backpack, and check out their skill tree.

There's even an interactive portion where players can potentially earn the same loot as what a streamer gets when they open a special rare chest. These can be redeemed when Borderlands 3 comes out through a SHiFT code.

What to Expect From the Borderlands 3 Stream

So far there's only one cinematic trailer for Borderlands 3 which gives a brief glimpse at some of the new vault hunters and villains. Today's stream will focus on gameplay, and when we talk about Borderlands 3 gameplay we're mostly talking about guns. Expect to see new weapons, skills, and different enemies that you can blow up in some new, sadistic way.
