Gearbox Software has announced a brand new Borderlands 2 DLC at E3 called Commander Lilith and the Fight for Sanctuary.
The latest expansion for the 2012 looter-shooter is currently available for free on Steam to all owners of Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Handsome Collection until July 8. The narrative serves as a bridge between the story of Borderlands 2 and Borderlands 3, and also has a couple of references to the events of Tales from the Borderlands.
Led by the legendary Firehawk Lilith, The Crimson Raiders are in possession of the Vault Map and are preparing to leave Sanctuary in search of its secrets. But when Dahl-branded ships full of soldiers arrive and deploy a chemical weapon, the team is forced to change plans, and a hasty escape leaves Lilith and the Vault Hunters scattered across the Pandoran desert. Enemies infected by Dahl’s toxic gas pose a new threat to Pandora, and only the vault hunters can stop it.
This all-new adventure not only sets the stage for Borderlands 3 but also introduces some exciting new features along the way new areas to explore, new enemies and bosses to battle, a new level cap to hit, new aesthetic options for the Vault Hunters and vehicles, two new endgame OP levels, and a new better-than-Legendary Effervescent tier of weapons and equipment to loot.
Borderlands players can access the new content by fast-traveling to the Fight for Sanctuary location. However, the developers recommended that players should reach at least level 30 and have finished the main storyline first before heading to the new location.
