Speedrunner beats the game in 59 minutes, 15 seconds but holds out that this time can be bested.
Now a new speed run from Corey “Allakazzaror” Coolidge shows From Software’s famously unforgiving action RPG can be beaten in under an hour without exploiting any bugs in the game. Coolidge’s run falls within the Glitchless Any%” category, which tasks players with playing through Dark Souls II on a speedrun by any means possible, apart of course from relying on glitches.
Coolidge also maintains that a sub 58 minute run is possible due to the fact he made some mistakes, including dying once, adding around 40 seconds.
