Elden Ring's speedrunner Elden Ring has now defeated the game in under nine minutes.
YouTube user Distortion2 shaved his time to 8 minutes 56 seconds. He used the Zip glitch to teleport between different areas of the map.
Combining this with other exploits that allow most parts of the game to skip, Distortion2 has cut down on his time every day since setting the under-30-minute speed run one month ago.
There are many speedrun styles, including runs that do not take damage or deals damage and complete playthroughs where players defeat all Elden Ring's major bosses.
Players will find ways to exploit Elden Ring in new ways, much like Bloodborne and Dark Souls, for many years to come. This will lead to even faster runs down the line.
Last week, players found a way to defeat the notorious boss Starscourge Radahn. They lured him to the edge of the water so that he drowns.
Other bizarre secrets that Elden Ring has discovered include a pair of fancy underwear in-game files, and a wall that opens only after 50 hits.
IGN's 10/10 review stated that Elden Ring was a huge iteration of what FromSoftware started with Souls.
It brings its constantly challenging combat to an amazing open world, which allows us to choose our own paths.
