Borderlands 2 Campaign is 58 Hours Long

If you had plans of blasting through Borderlands 2 in five minutes, then think again. Gearbox has revealed that it’s going to take you almost 60 hours to complete a single playthrough.

“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,” Gearbox marketing VP Steve Gibson told Gamerzines. “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.”

It’s good to see that Gearbox isn’t selling people short with Borderlands 2, fans are expecting a massive time sink and that’s what they are going to get. The game is due out September 18 in the U.S. and September 21 in Europe.

How long did you spend on the first game? Let us know in the comments below.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
