A long-time rumor regarding two Borderlands editions has now leaked on the web. As said in a material that recently surfaced, and also screenshots posted on Steam, Borderlands 2 will be getting a new part of free downloadable content that will serve as a bridge to Borderlands 3.
According to ResetEra, a few Steam Store users have found an ad for something named ‘Borderlands 2: Commander Lilith & The Fight For Sanctuary’ appearing on their desktop, geared with screenshots and a link (which has been deleted) implying that the ad will be free for any player that has the base game.
The add-on will come with new bosses, new zones, and a brand new loot, as said in the leaked information. The leak featured an official description of Borderlands 2: Commander Lilith & The Fight for Sanctuary which has since been removed from Steam.
Borderlands 2 New, Free Expansion Pack Acts Like A ‘Bridge’ To Borderlands 3
The description reads as it follows: “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 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. Returning players can pursue an increased level cap of 80, while newcomers can automatically boost to level 30 and dive straight into the action.”
The title ‘Fight For Sanctuary’ probably refers to Borderlands 3 transition from Borderlands 2 hub area to the new spaceship hub called ‘Sanctuary 3’ in Borderlands 3. Gearbox’s Borderlands 3 is scheduled to launch on September 13th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC. As said in a recent report by PlayStation Lifestyle, Borderlands 2: Commander Lilith & The Fight For Sanctuary is allegedly due to officially be announced during E3, probably at the Microsoft Press Conference.
Borderlands 2 is at the moment available as a free game via PlayStation Plus on PlayStation 4, as part of Borderlands: The Handsome Collection.
