The Elden ring speed world record appears to have been broken twice in one day, with both times reaching less than an hour.
YouTube user LilAggy published his sprint yesterday, where he hit the 59 minute 38 second mark. At the time, it seemed like a new world record. “That couldn’t be closer,” he said at the time.
That record took just a few hours to be beaten. Dist Distortion2 on YouTube published his own speedrun, where he trailed the previous record by 10 minutes, hitting 49 minutes and 29 seconds. Even more impressive, Distortion2 claims this is his first attempt at speeding up the game, and the catalog for Any% run (basically, the end by any means) can last under 40 minutes.

The FromSoftware game has been a favorite of the speed enthusiast community since Demon’s Souls on PS3, with players spending years figuring out the perfect strategies and shortcuts.
For example, the original Dark Souls was completed in 21 minutes and 17 seconds while Bloodborne’s world record was 21 minutes and 15 seconds.
Elden Ring, being an open world game, is much larger than previous FromSoftware titles, but the fact that players have trimmed what could have been a 100-hour adventure down to 49 minutes certainly shows. that there will be stiff competition to get close to smaller numbers.
