New Borderlands 2 DLC leaked to bridge gap to Borderlands 3

Despite being seven years old, Borderlands 2 is getting a new DLC expansion starring Lilith and featuring new zones and loot.

No, you didn’t read that wrong. Borderlands 2 has new DLC on the way and it’s called Commander Lilith & The Fight For Sanctuary.

The idea is that it’ll fill in story details that connect Borderlands 2 with the upcoming Borderlands 3, with the official DLC annoucement seemingly being held back for E3.

It leaked out anyway though, when fans found references to it in the Steam client, which offered the following description:

Return to the award winning shooter-looter for a new adventure that sets the stage for the upcoming Borderlands 3. Sanctuary is under siege, the Vault’s map has been stolen and a toxic gas is poisoning Pandora. Fight new bosses, explore new zones, get new loot (including an entirely new tier beyond Legendary) and join up with Lilith and the Crimson Raiders to take on a deranged villain hell-bent on ruling the planet.

It all sounds pretty substantial for what seems to be free DLC, with the game raising the level cap to 80 and automatically starting new players at level 30.

Although it’s an unusual move for a company to support such an old game, after years of inactivity, Borderlands 2 has always been very generous with its DLC and developer Gerabox are no doubt looking to take advantage of the fact that remaster Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is currently free via PS Plus.

The new DLC will be released on Sunday 9, June, which implies it’ll be announced at E3 2019 – very probably during Microsoft’s pre-show media briefing the same day.

Borderlands 3 will be there as well, of course, and since it’s out on 13 September this year there should be plenty of new details and footage.
