Borderlands 2 New DLC - How to Access the Borderlands 2 Commander Lillith and the Fight for Sanctuary DLC

This is how you access the new Borderlands 2 DLC, known as Commander Lillith and the Fight for Sanctuary, right now.

The new Borderlands 2 DLC was revealed at the Xbox E3 2019 presentation on June 9, and it's available to download right now. Known as 'Commander Lillith and the Fight for Sanctuary,' the DLC takes place before the events of Borderlands 3. In this guide to the DLC pack, we'll be walking you through accessing the new Borderlands 2 DLC as easily as possible.

How to Access Borderlands 2 Fight for Sanctuary DLC

Obtaining the new Borderlands 2 DLC is actually really simple. Just go into your relevant storefront, whether it's on PC, PS4, or Xbox One, and find the download for the Commander Lillith and the Fight for Sanctuary DLC pack.

It goes without saying that you need to already own Borderlands 2 (The Handsome Collection) to access the new prequel DLC. Note that the store listing for the DLC says that it's a "limited time offer" until July 8. We're not sure what happens after this, but you might want to download this new DLC sooner rather than later.

Next, you'll need to download the new update for Borderlands 2/The Handsome Collection. It's a really small download, less than 1GB in total, so don't worry about it taking up a lot of room. Then, once the DLC has downloaded, which weighs in at around 5GB, boot up the game.

At the main menu of Borderlands 2, within the Handsome Collection, you have two options. If you already have save data for a character, then boot up your existing save file, and you'll find that there's a new quest to defend Sanctuary, as well as a handy level cap boost to 80. Simple.

But, let's say that you haven't got existing save data for Borderland 2, and you want to check out the new Commander Lillith and the Fight for Sanctuary DLC. At the main menu for Borderlands 2, press Y/Triangle.

This takes you to the menu system seen above. Here, you can create a level 30, pre-made character, from the Commando, Siren, Gunzerker, Mechromancer, or Psycho classes. Once you've done this, you'll be placed right in the Commander Lillith and the Fight for Sanctuary DLC, which sets the scene for the new game. Enjoy!
