While many players are gearing up for hours of exploration and adventure in Starfield, one player has already achieved the impossible. Speedrunner Micrologist managed to complete Bethesda’s expansive new RPG in an astonishing 2 hours, 51 minutes, and 42 seconds. Their remarkable feat was captured in a YouTube video.
Micrologist’s gameplay showcases an impressive understanding of Starfield’s design and missions. They navigate through the game with precision, focusing solely on objectives and bypassing non-essential interactions. Their efficient choices in conversations with NPCs contribute to their swift progress.
For those who are still discovering Starfield and wish to avoid spoilers, it might be best to hold off on watching the video until you’ve experienced the game firsthand.
Early Success, Future Challenges
Starfield is in its early stages, with its official release scheduled for September 6th. The fact that players are already completing the game in under three hours is a testament to their gaming prowess. As players become more familiar with the game and uncover time-saving strategies, we can expect even faster completion times.
While achieving a speedrun record in Starfield is a remarkable achievement, there’s also value in taking your time. It allows players to savor the gaming experience and discover the delightful Easter eggs thoughtfully placed by Bethesda. These include nods to iconic lines from Skyrim and playful references to The Elder Scrolls 6.
