A reputable source has claimed that Gearbox, the developer behind the game, will release a new expansion DLC for Borderlands 2. The rumor claims that the Borderlands 2 DLC will be released during E3 this year which is only weeks away from now. Seeing how the timing of the alleged release of the DLC is so specific, one can’t help but think that this may, in fact, be true.
Borderlands 2 DLC Connecting Borderlands 3?
As many of you may know, the sequel to the second game, Borderlands 3, has been in the works for some time now. if anything, it makes more sense to just wait for the next game to grace us but according to the anonymous source, as reported by playstationlifestyle.com, the alleged DLC release is meant to bridge the gap between the next game and the current one.
As for the title, the source claims that it will be called, Lilith and the Fight for Sanctuary. Since the rumor maintains that the DLC will be coming during this years E3 presentation, it would be a good idea to reinstall the game if you don’t have it and get it ready for the update. The update will most likely drop at the same time for PS4, Xbox as well as PC.
Going purely off of the rumored title, Commander Lilith and the Fight for Sanctuary, it seems like we could get some early insight into the rise of the Children of the Vault, as well as backstory on how many of Borderlands‘ most popular characters end up on Sanctuary 3, the new ship that will take players from planet to planet. Adding to that, isn’t it curious that Borderlands 3’s new ship-turned-home-base is called Sanctuary 3, yet there isn’t historically a Borderlands location called Sanctuary 2? Could be that Commander Lilith will clear this little discrepancy up.
This is all that has been reported so far, the only thing to do now is to wait and see if the rumor is true. Whatever the case may be, it is no doubt that a DLC expansion right before the release of the next Borderlands game will surely get people more hyped as they enjoy the new content.
