New and FREE DLC Released that Bridges Story Gap Between Borderlands 2 and 3 Available Now

Announced during today’s Microsoft Xbox E3 2019 Briefing, Commander Lilith & the Fight for Sanctuary is the fifth campaign DLC for Borderlands 2. This all-new adventure not only sets the stage for Borderlands 3 but also introduces some exciting new features along the way. We’re talking new areas to explore, new enemies and bosses to battle, a new level cap to hit, new aesthetic options for your Vault Hunters and vehicles, two new endgame OP levels, and a new better-than-Legendary Effervescent tier of weapons and equipment to loot. And it’s free until July 8!

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 you and your friends can stop it.

If you want to start the new Commander Lilith & the Fight for Sanctuary with one of your existing Vault Hunters, you need to visit the new “Fight for Sanctuary” location, which is accessible via Fast Travel stations. Note that attempting to play the new DLC content is not recommended unless your Vault Hunter is at least level 30.

Want to jump right into the DLC without delay, regardless of how much Borderlands 2 you’ve played? You also have the option to create a new level 30 Vault Hunter already loaded into the start of Commander Lilith and the Fight for Sanctuary. Go to the Select Character screen, create your level 30 character, and then start the game to automatically be transported to the new content.

That’s not all! If you’d like to play Commander Lilith & the Fight for Sanctuary but don’t have a copy of Borderlands 2, you might be interested in one of the great deals that are currently available for Borderlands: The Handsome Collection such as it now being included in the Xbox Games Pass!
