This game takes place in between the events of Borderlands and Borderlands 2, making it a sequel to the first game and a prequel to the second. (See? Pre-Sequel!) Makes sense to me… The video, narrated by Mr. Torgue and Sir Hammerlock, is a grand tour showing you all the new features of Pandora’s moon Elpis, which differs greatly from…
blah blah blah… yada yada… BORING!
Let’s talk about the Handsome Jack thing, k pumpkin?
So here is Gamer Demon’s Handsome Jack Hero Theory. This premise comes from the fact that Handsome Jack thinks he is the hero all throughout Borderlands 2.
What it seems like to me is that this is an “Anakin Skywalker, Darth Vader” scenario because Jack seems to be driven by a noble reason on Elpis. The villains in this game are rogue Dahl soldiers known as “The Lost Legion” and they took over Hyperion’s moon base (the big H over the moon in BL2) where Handsome Jack has been exiled. It’s said in this trailer that he was working with vault hunters to stop a threat to both Elpis and Pandora.
