Borderlands 3 is an upcoming first-person shooter from the acclaimed team at Gearbox Software. Borderlands and Borderlands 2 are regarded as cult classics, and the titles have seen somewhat of a resurgence on Xbox One due to the recent Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition rerelease, and Xbox One X enhancements for Borderlands: The Handsome Collection.
Since Borderlands 3 is a story-driven game, many gamers want to know how long the campaign lasts. While there are a lot of side missions and other challenges, the main story which requires you to go from planet to planet will last 30 hours. A report by PCGamer provided more insight into this figure and what customers can expect from the experience. The outlet said the following.
According to creative director Paul Sage... 'If you beeline it through, and I mean beelining it through, it might take you 30 hours to complete the main story.' That's actually right in line with Borderlands 2... Throw in side missions, experimenting with different builds and playstyles, harder difficulties on New Game+, and so on, and you're looking at a much longer game.
Borderlands 2 in particular received phenomenal post-launch support and the expansions were challenging and lengthy. Hopefully Gearbox's latest project will receive the same attention.
Recently, the team revealed that the game wouldn't feature pay-to-win microtransactions — but there would be cosmetic add-ons down the line — and run at 4K resolution on Xbox One X. Luckily, if you prefer playing at 60 frames per second, there's going to be a "favor performance" option which decreases the resolution, but increases the frame rate.

Borderlands 3 is an absurdly fun loot 'n shooter, filled with raunchy comedy and plenty of action. It features over-the-top weapons and a story which takes you to various planets. The game launches in September, but you can preorder it right now.
