The Borderlands 3 Twitch page features the game’s box art, and fans that have taken a real close look at it have spotted a hidden Morse code message that raises questions about the Destroyer and the first vault hunter.
One such fan, YouTuber Joltzdude139, decided to decode the dots and dashes barely visible in the artwork on the Twitch channel’s offline screen.
Placed on either side of the Psycho, the first message reads, “Where is the first vault hunter?” The message on the right of the image reads, “Who is the Destroyer?”
Vault hunters were already present in the Borderlands universe by the time players stepped into the shoes of Lilith, Brick, Roland, and Mordecai, and they discovered the Destroyer in the vault at the end of the fist game.
The Destroyer was a huge blob with tentacles, so asking “who” it is raises all sorts of questions. Also, asking in relation to the whereabouts of the first vault hunter might suggest that the two are connected somehow.
The Destroyer’s eye was obtained by Handsome Jack in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, and while players have assumed it’s been dead this entire time, the Morse code message may indicate otherwise.
Either way, we’ll find out more when the game is released on September 13, 2019, on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Make sure you’re up to speed with the various editions available, including the $250 Diamond Loot Chest Collector’s Edition.
More tidbits about the title are expected in the Borderlands 3 gameplay reveal event on May 1.
