Speedrun Times Explained: A few weeks have passed since the game Elden Ring came out, and people are already speedrunning it quickly. As of now, it looks like people are breaking Elden Ring speedrunning records almost every day now.
One Elden Ring player set the first record for how long it took to finish the game. At the time, this was a big deal because the game is known for being hard, long, and short. Because the player didn’t use any glitches or skips, this run was mainly about skill.
They used a melee build, which know to be more difficult than magic builds.
Unfortunately, the record didn’t last long. In less than 24 hours, another speedrunner from Elden Ring beat the game in less than an hour.
YouTuber LilAggy was the first person to finish Elden Ring in 59 minutes and 38 seconds, so he had the record for that time. People probably thought this time would last a long time before they could beat it. However, this did not happen, as other players in the Elden Ring have since set even better records.
Speedrunner and Twitch streamer Distortion2 set a new record for the fastest speedrun around the Elden Ring. He did it in 33 minutes and 55 seconds.
The streamer beat his own record time and posted a new record time of 30 minutes and 24 seconds on YouTube for a few hours. This time broke after Hazeblade finished Elden Ring in less than 25 minutes.
It may soon be possible to beat the game even faster with this new method. A Reddit user posted a video that showed how the Elden Ring sword dance weapon art could use while airborne.
This allows players to cover a lot of ground. If it is used correctly, it could allow players to skip a lot of the game to finish it even faster.
Some people are trying to finish the game as quickly as possible, but others are trying to beat the bosses of Elden Ring with ridiculous controllers. Streamer SuperLouis64 surprise when he able to beat Godrick the Grafted with a unique controller made out of bananas.
Elden Ring is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. You can also get it on Xbox One.
