Borderlands is an action role-playing game and sequel to the 2009’s Borderlands.
It was co-developed by Gearbox Software and Obsidian Entertainment, with additional development by Anthony Burch who was a writer on the first game.
The story takes place on Pandora, a planet that orbits two stars: one rich in helium-3 which is used to power colonist spaceships and military ships.
The Helios Project launched thousands of years ago, exploring the universe for valuable resources.
Helios however made a fatal mistake when it found intelligent life, forcing them to relocate their project close to Pandora’s moon Hyperion in order to escape from it before they were overwhelmed by bloodthirsty natives also known as “Skags”.
The Hyperion project however was never intended to be permanent. Instead, it would stay there for a few decades before the population could grow enough to start colonizing the planet themselves.
The Helios scientists however never counted on humans migrating there and formed a resistance against them instead of conforming to their new situation.
The game begins 17 years after the events of Borderlands with Hyperion’s population grown enough to establish cities and rebuild Hyperion’s infrastructure, which had been destroyed by bandits 14 years ago during a Pirate invasion.
