Elden Ring is a huge game that can take over 100 hours to finish, but a speedrunner has already beaten the game in under one hour.
Specifically, speedrunner LilAggy accomplished this impressive feat in just 59 minutes and 38 seconds, making him the first player to beat the game in under 1 hour. To beat the game this quickly, he had to take advantage of some exploits (though this is standard in most Any% speedruns), but the feat is still impressive. Plus, he also mentioned that his method can produce sub 50-minute runs, and that this run would’ve been quicker had he not died at some points.
LilAggy being the first player to beat Elden Ring in under 1 hour shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise. After all, he was the first player to beat Sekiro in under 20 minutes, and he is currently 2nd in the Sekiro Any% speedrun world ranking.
The game has only been out for around two weeks, but speedrunners are already beating Elden Ring in impressive fashion. Take for example niko bellic who has beaten Elden Ring in 2 and a half hours without dying. While not a speedrun, there’s also ONGBAL who has taken down arguably the game’s toughest boss without getting hit.
Elden Ring is available now on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.
In related news, Elden Ring has reached nearly 1 million concurrent players on Steam, making it the sixth-biggest on the platform in terms of concurrent player count.
he’s not the first tho and distortion made it faster.
