Dark Souls III Speed-Run Record Set At A Blistering 1:42

Well damn, that was fast.

Dark Souls III just launched on March 24 in Japan (it'll be out in the West on April 12), but one Japanese player has already beaten From Software's challenging action/RPG.

Well, let's be specific: This player not only beat the game, he beat it in a ridiculous 1 hour and 42 minutes, which is the world record others will have to try to beat. You can examine the speed-run below but of course, the video contains all sorts of spoilers so if you want to go into DSIII fresh, avoid watching. And believe it or not, this player beat his own world record time of 1 hour and 56 minutes, so he just keeps getting faster...and as he dies a few times in the latest run, the time could come down even more.

The anticipated title will be here in the U.S. soon; if you want to learn more, check out our preview, and don't forget about the pre-order bonuses!

I'm a hardcore gamer, I love video games.
But these guys?
They're on another level.
I'll never come close to doing what they do.

They don't love video games any more than you do. They have a love for defeating games as fast as they can. Some people like collecting all weapons and armors, getting all trophies and then you have people like the speed-runners.

i cant tell if that was sarcastic or not, but in case its not, he does it with a few glitches and not really actually playing the game other than the scenes that are necessary

Yea man when I was watching it, I was got totally shocked at the Lord of Cinders part. That's a huge loss of time for the Korean.
