Edited: The DLC is now out, and free until July 8! I’ve updated the post with the trailer. Enjoy going back to Pandora!

From the “Worst-kept Secrets” department, news emerged today that Borderlands 2 is getting new DLC to bridge the gap between Borderlands 2 and 3.

I say emerged, but in reality a Steam store page popped up for it and was quickly taken down. It’s likely that this was meant to be an E3 surprise but someone published that page too soon.

However, rumors have been circulating about this for a few weeks now. I normally hesitate to post about anything non-confirmed but this is about as close as you can get.

It looks like this DLC will drop on June 9 for the low cost of $0.00 but that could change. And let me stress that this still could be some bizarre mistake, but people grabbed the screenshots from the store page and they don’t appear to be from any previous content, and SteamDB scraped the info before it was taken down. So we do know for sure that it was published. Again, it’s all but confirmed.

The description, before it was taken down, was as 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 a 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.

And here’s the gallery of screenshots to further entice you: https://m.imgur.com/a/UtflKRy

I may be most interested in that level 30 boost to try out some different characters quickly. How about you? Excited to return to Pandora a little earlier than planned?

If you don’t have the game but you have PlayStation Plus, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is free this month, is on sale for $6 on Steam right now, and $9 on Xbox One. These are probably strategic moves to get the game in people’s hands when this DLC was near and drum up hype for Borderlands 3, and it’s a damn good plan.

Hat tip to resetera for the info:

And SteamDB for grabbing it before it was taken down:

Hey guys! Be sure to check Steam and see if you have the Handsome Collection. If not, you might want to grab it while it's 95% off. I apparently didn't have all of the content, but I just bought the content I was missing for just less than $2!

Yeah, I did this for like a few dollars too! Good tip.

Hahaha, it is.

And kudos to the new Claptrap voice actor. You can barely tell that it’s a different actor.

Funny video and it does sound like Claptrap! Hopefully they paid them.

Yeah, when I watched this, at first, I wondered how the new voice actor would sound and you both are right, it does sound like Claptrap. :) Glad to share an enjoyable video.
