Borderlands 2 DLC Leading Into Borderlands 3 Leaks on Steam

Borderlands 2 DLC Leading Into Borderlands 3 Leaks on Steam

We'll be getting a good reason to return to Sanctuary before September comes around.

An early Steam store page listing has leaked the release of downloadable story content for Borderlands 2, set to go live sometime during E3 2019. This DLC, called "Commander Lilith & The Fight For Sanctuary," would bridge the gap between Borderlands 2 and the upcoming Borderlands 3.

The DLC was spotted on Twitter and archived in a thread on ResetEra. Users believe the DLC will be free given the way it is listed, and that it will go live on June 9, which happens to be the date of Microsoft press conference. We've reached out to 2K to confirm the details of the leak, but have yet to hear back.

A Steam page description says the Fight For Sanctuary has the Crimson Raiders' safe haven under siege. The Vault map is stolen, and toxic gas is flooding Pandora. Including new content, the DLC will add loot that goes beyond what could be found in Borderlands 2:

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.

Those who already have a character can go for a new level cap of 80, while new players can boost a character to level 30 to start the DLC right away. The latter part is nice, considering how many platforms Borderlands 2 has come to since its launch.

Borderlands 3 is set to launch September 13 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. From our early impressions, it lifts a surprising amount from games like Mass Effect, and it works pretty well. This is a good way to get back into that Vault hunting spirit, I suppose.
