 Shift Codes and Golden Keys
So, you want to hear another story, eh? One where the very fate of Pandora hangs in the balance? If not, too bad. I'm telling you anyway.
First, there was the Vault: an alien prison opened with a mystical key. To the warriors who opened it, the Vault was just a container of tentacles and disappointment. They vanished into the wastelands, certain that the Vault held no treasure at all. They were wrong. The Vault's opening triggered the growth of Eridium, a priceless alien element. Soon, the rare and valuable mineral emerged all across Pandora. Its appearance attracted many, including... the Hyperion Corporation. They came to Pandora to mine Eridium, and bring order to the savage planet. Through their excavations, Hyperion uncovered evidence of an even greater Vault. Their leader vowed to find it - to use its power to civilize the Borderlands, once and for all.
But Hyperion weren't the only ones searching for the next Vault's alien power. The call of danger and loot is not so easily resisted. Certain warriors came to Pandora in droves to uncover its hidden secrets. Some would call them adventurers. Others call them fools. But I... call them Vault Hunters.
Our story begins with them, and with a man named Handsome Jack.
--as told by Marcus, the merchant.
The characters fight to free Pandora from Handsome Jack, CEO of the Hyperion Corporation, who is trying to wake up an ancient evil known as "The Warrior".
