Borderlands® Storms E3 with New Borderlands® 3 Trailer and Surprise New Campaign DLC for Borderlands® 2: BL2 CLFFS Art

New Borderlands 2 campaign DLC Commander Lilith & The Fight for Sanctuary available today – free until July 8, sets the stage for Borderlands 3’s launch this fall

Hey Vault Hunters! Kicking off E3 with a huge surprise, 2K Games, Gearbox Software, and Gearbox Studio Québec today 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 13). Check out the trailer here!

Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Handsome Collection product owners will be able to download this DLC for free until July 8 at 11:59:59pm PDT. It will then be available for $14.99 USD starting July 9. 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 – full details listed below.

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. For more information about all the exciting content available in Commander Lilith & The Fight for Sanctuary, please refer to the fact sheet located on our Assets page.

Commander Lilith & The Fight for Sanctuary is the fifth campaign add-on for Borderlands 2, meaning a copy of Borderlands 2 (Steam) or Borderlands: The Handsome Collection (Xbox One, PlayStation 4) is required in order to play the DLC. Fortunately, both games are currently included in various sales and promotions across all three platforms.

  • Earlier today, Microsoft announced that Borderlands: The Handsome Collection has joined the Xbox Game Pass program, making it available to Game Pass subscribers at no additional cost.
  • In addition, PlayStation Plus subscribers can download Borderlands: The Handsome Collection for free on PlayStation 4 until July 2 as part of this month’s Instant Game Collection.
  • Finally, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is currently available for 85% off on Xbox One and 97% off on Steam. Both promotions end on June 17.

Though Borderlands 2: Commander Lilith & The Fight for Sanctuary is out today, E3 is just beginning!
