Borderlands 2


Jarrod Garripoli

Your journey begins with Marcus, a Pandoran weapons dealer, telling you the game’s story so far. The Vault (from Borderlands 1) was opened by the previous heroes and seemed only to be filled with tentacles and disappointment. But after the Vault was open Eridium began to manifest on Pandora. A new and powerful mineral, it began to attract the attention of warriors, fools, corporations, and more Vault Hunters. The Hyperion Company, led by Handsome Jack, began to mine for Eridium and they found evidence along the way of yet another Vault. Jack then decided to take control of Pandora and civilize these borderlands by force.

A cinematic intro introduces the four main playable characters (not counting DLC characters) on their way by train to search for the Vault. Axton: The Commando, Maya: The Siren, Salvatore: The Gunzerker, and Zer0: A Number.

They are attacked by robots and bandits, sent by Jack, and work together to turn them into scrap metal and piles of goo. After this they try and find Jack, but end up only finding a Jack-puppet with a load of bombs behind him. The bombs explode and derail the train, killing all of the other Vault Hunters save for the player-character you’ve chosen. Here your adventure begins…
