Viewers who watch the reveal event on Twitch will have a chance to earn in-game loot drops through Gearbox’s new ECHOcast Twitch extension. To score in-game loot during the livestream, you’ll need to have your SHiFT and Twitch accounts linked. You can find out how to do this on Gearbox’s latest blog post.
The ECHOcast extension will also allow viewers to have unique interactions with the Borderlands 3 streamers they’re watching, including viewing the streamer’s loadout and skill tree. While viewers can still utilize the ECHOcast extension without linking their accounts, this is a required step for those who want to win loot during the Rare Chest Events.
Now that you know how to watch the live Borderlands 3 gameplay reveal, make sure you tune in on time so you can score some early loot ahead of the game’s release. Borderlands 3 launches on September 13, 2019. Several special editions are available for pre-order that include bonus content as well.
