Borderlands is a First Person Shooter/RPG game developed by Gearbox Studios. Set on the planet of Pandora, you and several other fortune seekers are lured there by legends of an un-opened ‘Eridian Vault.’ After meeting a mysterious woman, you are led to an incredibly rare artifact, thought to be one of the four required to open the vault according to legend. Urged on by Patricia Tannis, an archaeologist and historian, you set off in pursuit of the next three artifacts. However, not all is as it seems, and before long opposing forces are also hunting for the pieces of the Vault Key. Hunting the Vault Key pieces, and refusing to stop for anything, they are stolen from you.
Tricked and deceived, an intense race starts to stop your enemies from accessing the vault and taking the contents for themselves. Only you and your team of fortune seekers can stop them. Use everything in your arsenal to stop them, before it is too late. With over 3,000,000 copies sold to date, Borderlands is one of the highest selling games to date, and there is no dispute as to why.
