Free Borderlands 2 DLC, Commander Lilith and the Fight for Sanctuary, will no longer be free after this weekend.
In order to bridge the considerable gap between Borderlands 2 and Borderlands 3 – a full seven years – Gearbox created some surprise new DLC for Borderlands 2.
The DLC, called Commander Lilith and the Fight for Sanctuary covers the events between the second and third games, and explains how everyone ends up on a big spaceship roaming the galaxy for vaults. It also fills in a few gaps for people who didn’t play Tales From the Borderlands, especially as you can no longer buy games from Telltale’s catalogue.
What’s particularly nice about Borderlands 3’s prequel DLC is that it’s free for all players who own Borderlands 2 or The Handsome Jack Collection. Or rather, it was free. You’ve only got two days left – at the time of writing – to pick up the free Borderlands 2 DLC before it is no longer free.
Commander Lilith and the Fight for Sanctuary will stop being free at midnight Pacific time on July 8, 2019. That’s 8 am on July 9 here in the UK. After that time, it will revert to $14.99 US. (Regional pricing may vary but we’ve not seen details on these yet.)
So if you want that free Borderlands 2 DLC? You’d best get on it, vault hunter.
