We’ve also learned plenty more about the upcoming sequel since its E3 showing, including details about Borderlands 3’s co-op, voice actors, vault hunters, and more.
Original story follows:
New DLC for Borderlands 2, Commander Lilith and The Fight for Sanctuary, was announced during Microsoft’s E3 2019 press conference. And surprise, we’ve reviewed it!
Available now for free for fans who already have a copy of Borderlands 2 or Borderlands: The Handsome Jack Collection on PC, PS4 or Xbox One, Commander Lilith is a brand-new campaign expansion that sets the stage for Borderlands 3.
In the expansion, Sanctuary is under siege, the vault map has been stolen, and toxic gas is poisoning Pandora and creating infected forms of enemies. Lilith and the Crimson Raiders are set to take on the deranged villain Hector, who leads his New Pandora Army to claim the vault map for himself.
Players can play through the DLC as Maya, Salvador, Axton, Zer0, Gaige or Kreig, battling new bosses, exploring new areas, collecting new loot and discovering a new tier beyond Legendary: Effervescent. Veteran players can pursue the new level 80 level cap while new players can boost automatically to level 30, helping prep for an all-new raid boss.
To access the installed DLC, visit the “Fight for Sanctuary” location in Borderlands 2, which can be found via any in-game Fast Travel station.
