Last month, we published a story that Gearbox was likely developing a new piece of DLC for Borderlands 2 that bridged that gap between 2 and 3. Sources said that the content would likely go live during E3.
Today, a Steam listing for the purported DLC leaked called Commander Lillith and The Fight for Sanctuary. The listing has since been removed but it revealed a number of details about what you can expect from the content, which will be free according to the listing:
Return to the award winning shooter-looter for a new adventure that sets the stage for the upcoming Borderlands 3. Sanctuary is under siege, the Vault’s map has been stolen and a toxic gas is poisoning Pandora. Fight new bosses, explore new zones, get new loot (including an entirely new tier beyond Legendary) and join up with Lilith and the Crimson Raiders to take on a deranged villain hell-bent on ruling the planet.
The DLC is set to go live on June 9, which is the day of Microsoft’s press conference. It’s a safe bet the DLC would be announced then.
Original Story (5/28/2019): Although Borderlands 3 isn’t launching until September, Gearbox may be cooking up some Borderlands-related content that will hit much sooner.
PlayStation Lifestyle is reporting that, according to an anonymous source, Gearbox is set to release new DLC for Borderlands 2, titled Commander Lilith and the Fight for Sanctuary. According to this source, the DLC will launch the week of E3 (so between June 10-14), though whether it will launch on every platform the game is available on (which includes PlayStation 3/4/VR, Xbox 360/One, and PC) is unknown.
Considering the title and the fact that Lilith shows up in the first Borderlands 3 trailer, it’s likely the DLC will act as a bridge for the stories between Borderlands 2 and 3. If this rumor turns out to be true, fans should hopefully have something to keep them busy as they count down the days to Borderlands 3.
