'Borderlands 2' DLC Commander Lilith & The Fight for Sanctuary is Out Now and Free Until July 8th

Hey Vault Hunters! Kicking off E3 with a huge surprise, 2K Games, Gearbox Software, and Gearbox Studio Québec announced that Borderlands 2: Commander Lilith & The Fight for Sanctuary is now available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam.

Commander Lilith & The Fight for Sanctuary is a brand new downloadable campaign expansion for Borderlands 2 – the award-winning shooter-looter that originally launched in 2012 – that brings players back to the wilds of Pandora for a brand new adventure that sets the stage for Borderlands 3 (launching September 13th). Check out the trailer below!

Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Handsome Collection product owners will be able to download this DLC for free until July 8th at 11:59:59pm PDT. It will then be available for $14.99 USD starting July 9th. Don’t own Borderlands 2 yet? Good news! It’s never been easier to get your hands on the legendary shooter because Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is currently available at little to no cost thanks to several ongoing promotions.

Commander Lilith & the Fight for Sanctuary takes place shortly after the events of the main story in Borderlands 2. Sanctuary is under siege, the Vault Map has been stolen, and a toxic gas is poisoning Pandora. You’ll step back into the boots of legendary Vault Hunters Maya, Salvador, Axton, Zer0, Gaige or Krieg to battle new bosses, explore new areas, and collect new loot, including an entirely new tier beyond Legendary. Join up with Lilith and the Crimson Raiders to take on a deranged villain hell-bent on claiming the Vault Map for himself.

If you haven’t played Borderlands 2 to completion, don’t worry, you’ll still be able to jump right in and enjoy this story expansion. While veteran players can pursue the new level cap of 80, newcomers will be able to create a brand new level 30 Vault Hunter at the Select Character screen and dive straight into the action.

Though Borderlands 2: Commander Lilith & The Fight for Sanctuary is out today, E3 is just beginning! Check out the brand new Borderlands 3 trailer that debuted during the Xbox Briefing.
