After making a big splash with a Pirates of the Caribbean crossover in A Pirate’s Life, Sea of Thieves is taking another weird turn with a brief tie-in with the Borderlands series. In the Making Mayhem event, players will be embracing their chaotic pirate within and unleash explosive mayhem to unlock some Borderlands-themed cosmetics. If for some reason you ever wanted to have a pirate Klaptrap as the figurehead on your ship, now is your time.
