Borderlands 2 Campaign 58 Hours

The campaign in Borderlands 2 lasts about 58 hours, Gearbox’s VP of Marketing Steve Gibson tells GamerZines. "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," he says. "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." Thanks VG247.

I have 69hrs on record for Borderlands (which doesn't include a previous playthrough before Steam recording hours played); that includes playing part of the way through on the next difficultly level, a secondary character and the DLC. Therefore if Borderlands 2 has a campaign length of 58hrs that looks to be similar to the original, possibly more..

It all comes down to the quality of the experience and the replayability, both of which look to be very good from everything I've seen so far. For me this will be an instant purchase. I had a huge amount of fun with the original and both my brothers will be getting it, so we'll be able to do some online co-op.

To compare, I put 60hrs into Diablo III and that included completing the campaign on Normal, Nightmare and Hell, as well as the first chapter of Inferno. And most single-player campaigns for FPS games are between 5-25hrs, with nothing in the way of replayability. I know that Borderlands is less structured than a typical singleplayer game but I find the core mechanics themselves very rewarding, particularly the loot system. Obviously reviews will give us a more accurate picture about the length of the game.

hmmm..some mixed messages there. Game guide people 100% a game - so that tells me they did EVERYTHING in 58 hours with 1 character....I dunno.
They just said it was a playthrough, not that it was how long they took to exhaust the entire game.
