As teased when it was accidentally leaked by Steam, Borderlands 2: Commander Lilith & the Fight for Sanctuary is out and it's temporarily free, although the Linux version is currently left behind. They did add Mac support to this new DLC a few minutes later, so perhaps it will be soon.

I've already emailed Aspyr Media to get a statement on when we can expect this to work on Linux, plus we're still waiting on the update to Borderlands 2 for Linux to get the Ultra HD Texture Pack. Hopefully Aspyr Media won't keep us waiting for too long. As for the DLC, here's more about it:

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 a 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.

Check out the trailer:

The DLC will be free until the end of July 8th, where 2K said in the press email it will be $14.99. If you grab it before July 9th at 7AM UTC it's yours to keep.

You can find it on Steam.

EhvisNot entirely sure why people are so happy with Proton on this one. After the rename fix, it ran reasonably well but with some initial stutter. However, zooming weapons gives fairly major graphical glitches. Example:

Tried it with D9VK. Initial stutter seemed a bit less, but a different set of graphical glitches:

Patterns in darker areas/shadows:

These are really annoying as they give sort of a moiré effect when moving.

Then there is the character introduction cut scenes:

Which is broken beyond use.

Can't comment on performance as both options give > 100 fps for me.
I'm getting this when changing resolution; works well in 1920x1080 or in windowed mode for me.
You may try in windowed fullscreen.

Is that for base proton or with d9vk?

Going by the ProtonDB reports for Borderlands 2, there seems to be quite a range of experiences of performance. My guess is that we who are happy with Proton (specifically SteamPlay, in my case) are mostly the lucky ones who're not having problems---not any major ones, at least.

Maybe look over the ProtonDB reports and see if anyone with a similar setup to you had/is having similar probs as you and maybe what work-arounds they might have discovered?

I managed to fix the black dots when using wined3d by turning off FXAA. But found more glitches while playing around. All water is black. Some objects have terrible terrible textures. Stuff like that. Seems that D3D11 is a much better bet than D3D9 these days. Looking at D9VK with hopeful eyes.

I tried a few versions of D9VK, but none of them looked right. Mostly lighting issues and the ones I mentioned above always remained.

I'm not using HD textures pack dlc, maybe this is the difference?

I don't think so. I'm using d9vk and HD textures and had no issues so far (except for a crash I had once when travelling to another area).

I tried without HD textures and it's exactly the same.
