In a surprise worthy of E3 2019, developer Gearbox has dropped an entirely free new DLC story for Borderlands 2 — and it’s available right now. The DLC is called ‘Commander Lilith and the Fight For Sanctuary‘, so you know you can expect some epic shootouts with most of the past Vault Hunters returning for one final adventure.
Not every version of Borderlands 2 has access to this totally free DLC episode, so we’re going to explain everything you need to know to jump and start looting.
Obviously, Gearbox did this to promote the upcoming release of the sequel Borderlands 3, but this is still an awesome addition. Not only is it free, it also includes a new tier of loot, totally new enemies, tons of references to the original games, and a full story that leads into the events of Borderlands 3. It’s kind of like an Easter egg filled sneak peak at what we can expect in the next game, and this thing is packed with returning characters. For a Borderlands 2 fan, this is a dream, and a great way to say goodbye to the game’s surprisingly in-depth cast of crazy characters.
