Borderlands 2 campaign will keep you busy for a long time
Gearbox’ VP of Marking, Steve Gibson, said in a new interview that the campaign for Borderlands 2 lasts no less than 58 hours. And that’s after finishing it with one of the five different character classes.
How did he come to that? Well, apparently they had some guide guys play the game:
“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,”
“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.”
Two words of advise:
1. Guide guys try to be as complete as can be to make sure they cover all the details. So they probably spend more time on a game than the average gamer
2. Randy Pitchford said that it would take 20 hours to finish Duke Nukem Forever. I you take out the loading screens, I doubt anyone took that long to finish it.
Borderlands 2 will be released for PC, X360 and PS3 on the 21st of September.
