The guys from Gearbox have announced that Borderlands 2′s campaign is expected to last almost 60 hours.
Steve Gibson, the Marketing VP explained how internal gamers managed to complete a playthrough of the sequel, and it reportedly took them 58 hours to finish the game fully. That was playing as just one character.
“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.
“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 is also touted to include a multiplayer component to allow co-op players to complete the campaign in full. You (and a friend) will be able to blast the snot out of Skags again from September 18th in North America, and from the 21st in Europe.
