Gearbox has revealed that the Borderlands 2 campaign mode takes “58 hours to play”, and that’s just “one play through with one character.” Speaking to Gamerzines, Marketing VP for Gearbox, Steve Gibson, said the developers think of the game as a “hobby”.
“What we like to think about it is, Borderlands is a hobby. Some guide guys just did a play through of Borderlands 2 and they reported back to us that it takes 58 hours to play through the campaign – and that’s just one play through with one character,” Steve said.
“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.”
Borderlands 2 is out in September.
