‘Elden Ring’ Has Now Been Beaten In Just 12 Minutes
The simple idea of completing Elden Ring seems impossible. But there are people who make it look effortless. FromSoftware has created a new action RPG that has been a huge success with soulslike fans, who have found many ways to improve their peers and make us all feel like the Longtail Cat Talisman.
Elden Ring players are a combination of creativity and skill. They have achieved no-hit/damage runs and pacifist playthroughs. Ragadon and Elden Beast were even bettered by someone using a Dance Dance Revolution mat. The classic speedrun is still the most popular Elden Ring style – which has been broken yet again.
Everyday a new net time is posted online. However, it’s hard to deny how incredible the record is. Speedrunner and Twitch streamer Mitchriz just posted an amazing 12-minute speedrun on YouTube. It took 12 minutes and 32 seconds. The Zip is a popular technique that he used to complete the run.
Zip allows players to use areas that are not allowed on the map. By doing this, players are automatically warped to new areas which allows them to skip large areas. This technique was first used in Eldenring speedruns after streamer HazeBlade attempted, with subsequent players one-upping the streamer.
Mitchriz spoke of the feat and said that it was “an] absolutely insane run. Even though it took a few attempts to achieve the “mega-zip”, the zips were flawless from start to end. This run was a huge improvement on our previous runs.
It doesn’t matter if you consider this a speedrun, or just gliding your way to success, Mitchriz accomplished more in 12 minutes than any of us have done to-date. Fair play.
