Brian Martel, executive producer on Borderlands 2 and co-founder of Gearbox Software, has said that the upcoming ‘role-playing shooter’ will take most players 60 to 70 hours to complete.
In an interview with IncGamers, Martel said that Borderlands 2 is about double of what was offered in the original:
“The whole thing is about double what we did before; then there’s a whole bunch of side missions and replayability features that we’ve added.
“To give some perspective: most people said that they finished the story of the first game in roughly the 20 hour range, but now we’re finding that it takes something in the 50 hour mark to do everything. And that’s if you really rush. Most people will find this to be a 60 to 70 hour game, if they complete everything in a single playthrough.
“It’s a big game and probably the biggest and best that we’ve ever made.”
