We're sure a lot of players haven't even scratched the surface of Elden Ring. And on the other hand, how could it be? FromSoftware's game requires hours and hours of effort and dedication. It is not a simple game (especially considering its difficulty), also thanks to its size and its open world nature. Despite this, many speed runs have been recorded for several weeks now, but the latest one that has emerged in recent days is truly sensational.

As you could have guessed from the title of the news, this time Elden Ring was finished in just 12 minutes. This is the new world record and if you are wondering how this was possible, the answer is very simple. Beyond the other speed runs, which were completed without the use of glitches, this time the author of this crazy race at the end of the game was YouTuber Mitchriz, who decided to take advantage of some shortcuts caused precisely by game mistakes and obviously jumping bosses. The speed run, therefore, does not invalidate the others that instead took place correctly.| ); }
This new world record is so incredible that it even manages to tear up the precedents not only of Elden Ring, but also of the Dark Souls saga . As reported by PC Gamer, in fact, at the moment the speed runs of the old trilogy created by FromSoftware have never dropped below 14 minutes. Incredible, right?

There's a new Elden Ring speedrunning world record, and it was accomplished using a popular exploit to skip past every boss in the game except one. Speedrunner Mitchriz was able to beat the game in an astounding 12 minutes and 32 seconds using the 'zipping' technique, which allows players to teleport around the map in seconds.

Streamer Distortion2 previously used zipping to achieve a 19-minute run, and then just last night achieved a 14-minute run, setting a new world record. But today, Mitchriz took the crown with this incredible sub-13 minute run.

As PC Gamer reports, Mitchriz uses zips to skip the whole Limgrave section of the game and head straight to Liurnia, where they use a waypoint to access an area in the late game. In earlier speedruns, they would then need to beat a series of bosses before completing the game, but in this run Mitchriz was able to beat just one boss, Maliketh, before skipping the others and zipping to the final area of the game.

Mitchriz then positions their character in such a painfully specific way that they're launched onto the steps in front of the last fog door in the game. From there, Mitchriz 'mega zips' to the very edge of the map instead of walking through the door, which allows them to skip the final boss and trigger the end of the game.

'Absolutely crazy run,' Mitchriz said. 'The zips were clean from the start to the finish, even if it did take a few tries to get the 'mega-zip' at the end. Really happy with this run, a big improvement over previous runs.

As incredible as the feat is, there's no doubt we'll see a faster run in the near future, but at some point speedrunners will reach the limit of what's possible in this space. Until then, we can't wait to see what these folks come up with to break the 10 minute mark.

It's only a matter of time, after all.
