In an age where single player campaigns in first-person shooters can be measured in nanoseconds, it is always refreshing to see a title buck the trend. Gearbox Software's Borderlands 2 is more than your average FPS, as it includes some RPG elements and more loot than you can ever possibly use at any given time. The best news comes in the form of how long a single playthrough of the campaign can last. Gearbox's vice president of marketing Steve Gibson said some of the "guide guys" reported a single playthrough of 58 hours for one character. Suffice to say we will all be spending a long time on Pandora yet again, and even longer when you factor in the Badass System. Gearbox has also tweaked the co-op aspect of Borderlands 2, so now questlines can be re-adjusted some to better match with your friends, and removed the rarely used PvP Arenas. Borderlands 2 is all PvE over those 58 hours, which not many other games (FPS or otherwise) can claim.
Borderlands 2 arrives on September 18 for the PC, PS3, and 360.
