2KGames, Gearbox Software, and Gearbox Studio Québec today announced brand new DLC for Borderlands 2. Commander Lilith & The Fight for Sanctuary is a brand new downloadable campaign expansion for 2012’s award-winning shooter-looter and brings players back to the wilds of Pandora for a brand new adventure that sets the stage for Borderlands 3. Check out the trailer here:

Owners of Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Handsome Collection on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam will be able to download this DLC for free until July 8 at 11:59:59pm PDT.

Commander Lilith & the Fight for Sanctuary takes place shortly after the events of the main story in Borderlands 2. Sanctuary is under siege, the Vault Map has been stolen, and a toxic gas is poisoning Pandora. You’ll step back into the boots of legendary Vault Hunters Maya, Salvador, Axton, Zer0, Gaige or Krieg to battle new bosses, explore new areas, and collect new loot, including an entirely new tier beyond Legendary. Join up with Lilith and the Crimson Raiders to take on a deranged villain hell-bent on claiming the Vault Map for himself.

If you haven’t played Borderlands 2 yet, or haven’t played the game to completion don’t worry. The DLC is designed so that you can jump right in and enjoy the story expansion. But, if you want to play through Borderlands 2 before jumping in, there are numerous promotions for you to pick the game up for cheap, or even for free:

  • Earlier today, Microsoft announced that Borderlands: The Handsome Collection has joined the Xbox Game Pass program, making it available to Game Pass subscribers at no additional cost.
  • In addition,PlayStation Plus subscribers can download Borderlands: The Handsome Collection for free on PlayStation 4 until 2 July as part of this month’s Instant Game Collection.

Veteran players can pursue the new level cap of 80, but newcomers will be able to create a brand new level 30 Vault Hunter at the Select Character screen and dive straight into the action.

Though Borderlands 2: Commander Lilith & The Fight for Sanctuary is out today, E3 is just beginning. A brand new trailer for Borderlands 3 also dropped. Check it out here:
