game news Elden Ring: new world record for finishing the game, but this time without “cheats”
If the spotlight of the Elden Ring speedrun is on Distortion2’s incredible performance, it’s star0chris who has released his world record. It is in a different category, that of glitchless, that the player has distinguished himself.

Elden Ring: a speedrun full of categories
We talk about it very often in the JV columns: elden ring is the subject of fierce competition in speedrunning, a discipline that consists of completing the game as quickly as possible. It has several categories, including none% in which it is enough to complete the game and this does not matter the way. The king of this category is called Distortion2 and regularly posts mind-blowing times. The last? less than seven minutes were necessary for me to see the end credits.
And if the record is impressive, it is the performance itself that is sometimes considered uninteresting by some. distortion2 uses zip, a method where you exploit glitches in the game allowing him to move across enormous distances. And if such a method requires some talent and some regularity, it’s less impressive because there’s no fighting during the entire ordeal… which makes the Elden Ring a bit salty.
30 minutes of preparation and here we go
However, the exploits of Distortion2 fall into the category any % run unrestricted where you can exploit glitches in the game to go faster. On this subject, there are other categories in which players do not allow themselves such an advantage.. This is the case of any % no fail, where no exploitation of the game takes place. And on this side is star0chris who holds the world record. It was on April 13 that she posted a video of him making a world record attempt. During the first part of his attempt, he collects everything he needs before doing the mandatory bosses. He picks up the ashes of war. Call, strengthen me, allowing him to increase his physical strength and fire-related attacks. He then arrives at Volcano Manor via the kidnapping maiden’s teleport at the bottom of Raya Lucaria and grabs the sword. Viper-Stalker : This is the blade to use to defeat Rykard. It is then with this team that he faces the lords of Elden one by one.
An impressive performance (and especially at the end of the fight with his anticipation of movements) allowing you to complete the game in 01 hour 18 minutes and fifty seconds. If such a performance is impossible for the poor mortals that we are, star0chris indicates that you can do better. He admits to having taken a lot of security during his attempt, and considers this any % sprint without fail can be done in as little as an hour. Wait and see.
