We have some new info, some of it is leaked, the rest is from analysis of the trailer:
-There is going to be a conflict between some of the gun manufacturers in Borderlands 3. At the very least Maliwan and Atlas will be participating in this conflict, since both have soldiers in the trailer.
-The Calypso twins are named Tyrene and Troy. They both have a parasitic ability that lets them steal the power of Sirens. When the game begins, Tyrene will already have Siren powers that she stole from another Siren, and in the trailer you can see Lilith crawling on the ground after Troy has stolen her siren powers. This is evident by him having red siren tattoos in part of the trailer, red being Lilith's Siren color (each Siren has their own color (Red for Lilith, White for Angel, Purple for Amara, Blue for Maya, Steele's color is unknown currently since she didn't use her Siren Powers in Borderlands 1 before she died). Supposedly, if they are killed in the game, their stolen powers will return to their previous owner if the owner is still alive, if not the Siren re-incarnation cycle will start again and a new siren will be born.
-We know the names for some of the planets in the trailer. Eden-6 is the planet with the somewhat jungle looking areas. Promethea is the planet with the large city. The planet with the Asian looking architecture still doesn't have a known name, nor does the desert planet that is not Pandora.
-Boss fights will be much more dynamic this time around, bosses have multiple phases which are indicated by visual changes.
-The character movement system has been improved, you can now slide on the ground and vault over obstacles.
-Laser weapons will return, and there is a flamethrower weapon in the trailer. There is a new Eridian weapon class as well. There seems to be a new elemental effect as well, called either nuclear or radiation.
-Zane, the Operative class, seems to have at least 2 powers, in the trailer he is shown with a holographic decoy and a flying drone following him around.
-Amara, The Siren class, also seems to have 2 powers, she has a ground pound power and a siren ability where extra energy arms form around her, greatly increasing her melee damage output.
(considering those 2 have at least 2 powers, it's possible that each class has multiple abilities in Borderlands 3, as opposed to 1 for previous games, or the extra abilities could be skill tree based)
-Flak, the Beastmaster class, is shown using his ability in the trailer, there is a Skag with glowing green eyes fighting alongside him. We don't know exactly how his power works just yet, but it is believed that his main ability allows him to summon 1 of 3 possible pets, with a secondary ability that let's him win over enemy beasts in combat and get them to fight alongside him, it is likely that the glowing green eyes skag is one of these possessed enemy beasts.
-Moze, the Bot Jock class, is shown summoning her mech Iron Bear in the trailer. The mech digistructs around her when she summons it, and a 2nd co-op partner can ride on top and control a 2nd turret up there.
