Infographic consists of major plot points like "Claptrap is annoying."

Although there are only three Borderlands games to date, you may have had some trouble following the exact timeline of the series' story. Perhaps it's because The Pre-Sequel takes place post-Borderlands 2, but its story is told through flashbacks set before Borderlands 2. Or maybe because you were simply too busy shooting things and comparing weapons. Whatever the case, 2K has provided an official timeline for the series to help you keep things straight.

Even 2K knows.

If you've yet to play The Pre-Sequel, or any other game in the series, you may want to avoid looking any further, as this infographic doesn't shy away from spoiling things.

The beginning of the timeline starts out before the series begins, with Jack getting a job as a programmer for Hyperion and having a daughter. From there, it delves into each of the three games' major events, though it does gloss over a lot of the specifics (luckily, there's Wikipedia for that).

The Pre-Sequel launched earlier this week on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. (At least officially, there's no plan for a current-gen console release, though that could change with fan demand.) Next up for the series is Tales From the Borderlands, an adventure game from Telltale Games.

I never really payed much attention in Borderlands 1, and my game saves got messed up by some guy hacking crawmerax. Didn't ever really comprehend the story. This Clarifies things!

Ironically this game has more of a quality story and lore behind it than Destiny.

So shall we assume Jack will return in his true dragon form, seeking to reclaim his mask?
