Borderlands series is known for its slapstick comedy, a load of goofiness and more guns that you can possibly count at once. Borderlands 2 lets you play as one of four Vault Hunters in a campaign against psychotic villain, Handsome Jack.

Pre-Sequel gives you a peek at Jack's past and how he came to be who he is today by defeating Lost Legion to gain control over Helios space station. It bridges a gap between first two mainline Borderlands game and adds RPG aspects to its genre.
