How Long is the Borderlands 3 story mode? The length of the Borderlands 3 story was recently confirmed by one of the title's developers ahead of its official release.

Looter-Shooter fans are currently waiting until September 13th, as this is the day that they will be able to finally jump into the new world of Borderlands 3. While there is still some time before the official release of Borderlands 3, the gameplay reveal event that took place this week helped to bring a wealth of information about Borderlands 3 to the surface. One bit of this information was the length of the story mode for the newest installment in the popular looter-shooter franchise. 

How Long is the Borderlands 3 Story Mode Length?

According to a report by PC Gamer, Creative Director Paul Sage stated that the main story mode quest length for entry 3 will be a total of 30 hours if you play straight through it. This means that players will be able to complete the core story mode of the highly anticipated title in a length of 30 hours if they do not engage in any other side missions or activities. There is also different difficulty levels and just the usual case of general mayhem that can easily draw the attention of a player away from the main story of Borderlands 3 and increase the length of how long it might take them to complete it.

With Borderlands 2 expanding the universe of the franchise in massive ways that includes the ability to visit different planets and over a billion guns for players to use against their enemies, there is no doubt that there are plenty of things for players to partake in that might increase the main story length from its base of 30 hours.
