    Borderlands 2 is around 40-60 hours long


    Borderlands 2 isn't a "wimpy sequel", around 40-60 hours long in total!

    "The last one was giant," Gearbox's vice-president of marketing Steve Gibson told Digital Spy earlier this month. "This one is more gianter. If you do core missions, ignoring side missions, you could probably plough through it in 20 to 30 hours in one playthrough. If you do side missions, you're looking to get close to doubling that."

    "Also, the writers like to mention that our amount of story and dialogue is six to seven times as much. So there's plenty more to do, plenty more to learn and plenty more to experience."

    "The way we felt was that three years ago, when we did Borderlands, we stuck our neck out pretty far," Gibson recalled. "We did what was seen as a bizarre blending of genres, a bizarre art style and a bizarre sense of humour.

    "We thought we could either churn out a sequel in a year or two, or we could be crazy all over again - stick out our necks again. That was the decision at Gearbox. People loved the game and rewarded us by purchasing the game.

    "We didn't just want to do a wimpy sequel. We wanted to do a full, ambitious, giant sequel, and part of that is the new feeling of experience, and that happens with new character classes."

    Loved Borderlands, can't wait for the sequel.

    That said, Borderlands plus all DLC felt too long, so I'm a bit sceptical that longer = better.

    In my case then it will probably be more like 80 hours, since I always take longer than the implied time. Either way I'm gonna love me some Borderlands 2.

    i would love that if it was true but doubtful it would take that long for most people since companies dont usually have people go through every mission to time it for the average gamer, they just base it off what they think it would take

    I agree, that DLC really made me dislike the game due to how boring it was.

    I blame it only on the Mad Moxxi's Underdome DLC. The other three DLC packs I loved, however, her DLC was the same thing over and over, some taking close to 5 hours to compete in one sitting.

    I kinda enjoyed Moxxi though that might have been because I was playing with friends and we spent alot of the time just chatting rather than focusing too heavily on the DLC itself.

    I dont mind length in a game as long as there is several other pieces that help it go by quickly. (Friends, quips, new environments, etc)
