Gearbox Software has said Borderlands 2's campaign will last players nearly 60 hours.
Marketing VP Steve Gibson explained that internal players have completed a playthrough of the sequel and they reported it took 58 hours to complete, which is apparently with 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."
Those wishing to play through the long campaign with a friend are in luck: Borderlands 2 features a multiplayer component to do just that. The game itself releases on September 18 in North America and 21 in Europe.
