This issue is regarding the new DLC “Commander Lilith & The Battle For Sanctuary” on PC.
I used to play Borderlands 2 on Steam through my friend’s shared library. I understand that there will be issues playing DLCs if the Steam game you are running is a shared game that belongs in another person’s library. Since the new free DLC “Commander Lilith & The Battle For Sanctuary” was released and the game bundle was also on massive discount on Steam, I decided to purchase “Borderlands: The Handsome Collection”. Now that I owned the base (with all other past DLCs included in my purchase), I should be able to play the new DLC without any problems.
However even after installation, the new DLC fails to launch when I try to access it in-game. In the fast travel menu, it shows a location " *Fight for Sanctuary" with an asterisk but i cannot fast travel to that location. A message appears every time: “You can not travel to Fight for Sanctuary because you do not own it. Download it today!” and Steam launches the Commander Lilith DLC store page prompting me to download it. No matter how many times I’ve downloaded and reinstalled the DLC, I kept getting the same message in-game when I try to start the DLC.
I am not sure what is the issue. In my Steam library, it was shown that I have the DLC in my library which means i already own the DLC. I have uninstalled the base game and the DLC and reinstalled them over and over again but the issue still persists. No matter what I do, I still cannot get the DLC to start in-game. I can’t seem to know what is the cause for this problem as I believe it should not have happened in the first place.
