Borderlands 2 is an action role-playing first-person shooter video game that was developed by Gearbox Software and published by 2K Games. Five years have passed since the events of Borderlands, when four Vault Hunters, a Hunter, a Soldier, a Siren and a Berserker, were guided by a mysterious entity known as "The Guardian Angel" on the planet of Pandora to the Vault, a place thought to have been left behind by aliens with powerful technology. Instead, these "Vault Hunters" were confronted by an alien abomination known as "The Destroyer" inside the vault. After defeating The Destroyer, a valuable mineral called "Eridium" started flourishing through Pandora's crust. Handsome Jack, a member of the Hyperion Corporation, secures this new resource and makes use of it to attempt to "civilize" the planet. Now, Handsome Jack rules over the inhabitants of Pandora with an iron fist from his massive satellite built in the shape of an "H", always visible in the sky in front of Pandora's moon. Meanwhile, rumors of an even larger Vault hidden on Pandora spread across the universe, drawing a new group of Vault Hunters to the planet in search for it.
