Elden Ring is an open-world action role-playing developed by FromSoftware and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment.
Just like Bloodborne, Demon’s Souls, Sekiro, and the Dark Souls series, Elden Ring was directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki. The caveat here is that the game was made in collaboration with the award-winning fantasy novelist and source material creator for the highly popular Game of Thrones television show, George R. R. Martin, who provided a lot of source material for the game’s setting.
Elden Ring was released for Microsoft Windows, Steam Deck, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S on February 25, 2022.
The Soulsborne games are known for their difficulty level, and Elden Ring is no exception. Some players, however, make the game look way easier than normal. Of course, we’re talking about speedrunners just blazing their trail through the game in the fastest way possible.
Elden Ring has had its fair share of speedruns so far. Speedrunners generally derive pleasure and gain fame by finishing the game in the fastest and most creative way possible. These methods include a lot of level and boss skips, only hitting the mandatory parts of the game.

Sometimes speedruns include taking advantage of certain well-known and lesser-known glitches in order to compete for best times in the highly competitive world of speedrunning. These are the current records in the game thus far.
