Hey Vault Hunters! Kicking off E3 with a surprise, 2K Games, Gearbox Software, and Gearbox Studio Québec have announced that Borderlands 2: Commander Lilith & The Fight for Sanctuary is now available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam.
Commander Lilith & The Fight for Sanctuary is a new downloadable campaign expansion for Borderlands 2 – the award-winning shooter-looter that originally launched in 2012 – that brings players back to the wilds of Pandora for a brand new adventure that sets the stage for Borderlands 3 (launching 13 September).
Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Handsome Collection product owners will be able to download this DLC for free until July 8 at 11: 59:59 pm PDT. Don’t own Borderlands 2 yet? Good news!
- Microsoft has 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 also download Borderlands: The Handsome Collection for free on PlayStation 4 until 2 July as part of this month’s Instant Game Collection.
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 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 to completion, don’t worry, you’ll still be able to jump right in and enjoy this story expansion. While veteran players can pursue the new level cap of 80, newcomers will be able to create a brand new level 30 Vault Hunter at the Select Character screen and dive straight into the action.

Blurring the lines between cautious strategy and unbridled mayhem, Superhot is the first-person shooter (FPS) in which time moves only when players move.

No regenerating health bars. No conveniently placed ammo drops. It’s just the player, outnumbered and outgunned, grabbing weapons off fallen enemies to shoot, slice, and manoeuvre through a hurricane of slow-motion bullets.
With its stylised graphics, the game finally adds something new to the FPS genre. Superhot’s polished, minimalist visual language helps players focus on what’s most important – the fluid gameplay and the cinematic beauty of the fight.
The game took thirty months to make, meaning thousands of hours were put into development and design. From its humble origins in the 7 Day FPS game jam, through a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign, to an array of awards and nominations from industry experts, Superhot is a labour of love by its independent, dedicated team and thousands of backers from all around the globe.
It has the following features:
• Endless Mode – how long can you last against unyielding waves of enemies?
• Challenge Mode – take on Superhot with your bare hands, no restarts, timed runs, and more.
• Extras – delve further into Superhot with mini-games, ASCII art, and [redacted].
The game is available now on the Nintendo Switch eShop for R150.
