Streamers and their audiences alike will be out in force for TwitchCon 2019, and Borderlands 3 is going to be there in a big way. This annual celebration of Twitch, livestreaming, and gaming in general is taking place September 27–29 at the San Diego Convention Center this year, and whether you're attending the convention in person or just watching from home, you can look forward to a Borderlands panel and a mayhem-filled event. Here's what we've got planned:
Stream starts: September 28 — 4:30 PM PDT / 7:30 PM EDT, September 29 — 12:30 AM BST, 7:30 AM GMT+8, 9:30 AM AEST

The Borderlands 3 ECHOcast Extension has been a hit so far, giving viewers the power to easily see a streamer's loadout and stats, inject even more mayhem into the streamer's gameplay in real time with special in-game events, and potentially score sweet loot dropped during the broadcast. This panel will offer a look at how the ECHOcast Extension was created, with a roundtable discussion featuring Borderlands 3 team members including Online and Social Product Owner Scott Velasquez, Senior Gameplay Programmer Michael Dube, Systems Designer Kevin Powell, and Lead Server Programmer Jonathan Moreau-Genest.
Open Competition for in-person attendees: 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM PDT
Finals stream starts: September 29 — 2:00 PM PDT / 5:00 PM EDT / 10:00 PM BST, September 30 — 5:00 AM GMT+8, 7:00 AM AEST

If you've ever watched a Borderlands 3 stream and thought "I could do better," here's your chance to prove it. We're going all out on the last day of TwitchCon 2019 with the Borderlands 3 Mayhem Match, a Pro-Am faceoff with $50,000 in total prize money at stake. Starting at 9:30 AM PDT on Sunday, September 29, TwitchCon 2019 attendees* can sign up in teams of four to compete against other amateur teams for the fastest clear times on Proving Grounds maps. Later in the day, the team with the best time will be selected to compete head-to-head against three hand-picked teams of Borderlands 3 influencers. From there, each team will run a gauntlet of five Proving Grounds maps with Mayhem 3 enabled; the team with the best cumulative time across three selected maps will be the grand champions. If you tuned in for Twitch Rivals event last week, you already have a sense for what kind of mayhem and chaos is in store for these brave Vault Hunters.
If you're attending TwitchCon 2019, we hope you have a great show, get a chance to see our panel, and possibly enter the Borderlands 3 Mayhem Match! For everyone else, we'll see you in the Twitch chat!
