It takes 58 hours to complete Borderlands 2, according to Steve Gibson, vice-president of marketing at Gearbox in an interview with Gamerzines.
“What we like to think about it is, Borderlands is a hobby. Some guide guys just did a playthrough of Borderlands 2 and they reported back to us that it takes 58 hours to play through the campaign – and that’s just one playthrough with one character"
Clearly, we'll be having lots of things to do in Borderlands 2. First-person shooters have become notorious for their short campaigns hardly surpassing the 10 hour line. Gearbox likes to think differently:
“So the depth with which people can get into that…Yeah we look at it as a hobby, and that isn’t even counting the new Badass Points system and how that’ll affect every character you do. We want it to feel like you get more for your money, we’re happy for people to pay their money once and feel that they get ongoing value.”
Borderlands 2 will be releasing the 21st of September for PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
