Making Mayhem Event returns to Sea of Thieves with free Borderlands rewards

Xbox's Gamescom 2021 stream was jam-packed with information about Xbox Game Pass and the titles coming from Xbox Game Studios in the future - however, there was one little announcement that was as surprising as it was exciting. Sea of Theives is collaborating with Borderlands! We don't know how this came about either, but the Making Mayhem Event has just started and we have everything you need to know about it right here.

The Making Mayhem Event has started!

Sea of Thieves' Making Mayhem Event has just kicked off - It isn't going to be as extravagant as some of the other events we've seen in the past but it's a good way to pass time between now and the next big thing!

" Larinna and the Bilge Rats have been working to get pirates co-operating and clearing out threats in recent times, so now it’s time to interject some more traditional Bilge Rat activities: accomplishing tasks through piratical pandemonium! In the Making Mayhem Event, it’s your job to enliven the Sea of Thieves by looting, shooting and blowing things up..."

To put it plainly, the Making Mayhem Event is going to be about making mayhem. It certainly seems to lean on the explosive nature of the Borderlands series - incorporating the chaotic nature of fictional piracy too!
