Whoops, looks like someone hit the publish button a little too early. Thanks to a premature Steam page posting, we’ve finally had the heavily-rumoured Borderlands 2 DLC confirmed, and it sounds like the perfect prep for Borderlands 3.
The posting for Commander Lilith & The Fight For Sanctuary briefly appeared on Steam last night – but as the page was pulled shortly afterwards, I think we can conclude it wasn’t supposed to be there. As the internet never misses a thing, images of the DLC and its description soon appeared on Reddit. Importantly, the DLC looks like it will be free, and those who spotted it on ResetEra report there’s a release date of 9th June – which just so happens to be the same day as Xbox’s E3 conference.
According to the posting, the DLC will provide a brand new adventure involving some familiar faces. With Sanctuary under siege, the Vault map stolen and a toxic gas cloud poisoning Pandora, players will need to do their shooty-looty thing to join up with Lilith and the Crimson Raiders to take on “a deranged villain hell-bent on ruling the planet”. The original source of the leak (via PlayStation LifeStyle) claimed this DLC will help explain what happens in the seven years between the end of Borderlands 2 and the start of Borderlands 3.
