Borderlands 2 fans should be happy to know that the game’s campaign is pretty damn lengthy.
In a recent chat with Gamerzines, Gearbox Software Marketing VP Steve Gibson confirmed that the game’s campaign will take approximately 58 hours to complete…just with one character. There are four characters in the game by the way, with a fifth one coming as a pre-order bonus.
“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,” said Gibson.
“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.”
Gibson also confirmed that the reason Arena Mode was dropped was because it was rarely used.
