Once the first few weeks of surprise are over, it’s time for the exploration. We are talking about a very common dynamic in the video game where titles like Elden Ring are enjoyed and their story is finished in the first days, and then it is time for the speedrunners, modders and other users decide squeeze rpg up to its limits.
It seems that the mods have not had an important depth in the community, after all, the use of Easy Anti-Cheat made it difficult or prevented the use of its online functions, but the work of the speedrunners at the time of seeing who completes the game faster is spectacular. If the most recent Elden Ring achievement was just over 10 minutes away, we’ve now reduced the counter to less than that ten.
In total, Twitch user Distortion2, who already has two achievements in the game, has managed to beat FromSoftware’s RPG in just 8 minutes and 56 seconds. A spectacular achievement that has had the player in front of the screen for the last few days because, in the constant tug-of-war of the speedrunner“competed” with the streamers G1nnz and Mitchriz, who in just over 24 hours reduced from 19 minutes to just 12.
That yes, before the vastness of the map of the game’s Midlands, completing Elden Ring while also having to overcome the vast plains and terrain that separate each of the main bosses takes a long time. Therefore, the user has made use of zip glitcha teleportation cheat that makes use of a certain bug in the game to move around the map with some freedom.
This Zip Glitch is caused when the walk and shield animations overlap, giving us the ability to activate this exploit. Far from being a negative practice, many speedrunners make use of these bugs or glitches to beat big games. However, the current record of Distortion2 can come to nothing, even by itself.
The user has commented that his next goal is not only to improve his mark of almost 9 minutes, but to complete the game in just 7 minutes, which leads many of us to create our character. It won’t be long until we can talk about a new world record.
