Devs Speedrun The Witcher 3, And It Still Comes In At 25 Hrs.

Speedruns are usually pretty damn quick.

As a frame of reference, speedrunners have managed to beat games like Dark Souls II in less than an hour. Know how long it took CD Projekt Red to beat The Witcher 3 the fastest way they know how?

25 hours. That's a freakin' speedrun.

The developers tell Gamereactor that by skipping the dialogue and taking the shortest possible path (which you certainly won't know when you sit down to play the game), they managed to finish up in 25 hours. But maybe that's not too surprising, as they've previously estimated that the game offers 100 hours of gameplay, and possibly double that amount if you wish to do absolutely everything.

And oh yeah, don't forget about the two expansion packs that add another 30 hours of gameplay. What are we supposed to do? Quit our jobs for the next year?

I don't need to finish games to feel happy with them so my job and gym schedules are safe, I probably not gonna buy the dlc for more hours of gameplay unless theres something very interesting on it.

Just like how the heists in gta "take 2 and a half to 3 hours to complete", some cave dweller is just gunna end up finding some sort of 20 minute path either way

Speedrun from the developers themselves?
I'll believe it when I see speedruns from normal gamers on Youtube.

Made me remember the ''Devs of Bloodborne can't beat the game'' thing, devs sure are not the best barometer to judge a game length or difficult.

i still can't believe that someone did a speen run of a 100-200 hours in a day more or less continious thats just crazy but hey atleast the speed run ain't that speedy realatively to be frank but still thats a long time to play straight in one go dam...

happy gaming
