Skyrim in Under 3 Hours? Challenge Accepted
Bethesda has a tradition of pitting their top QA macho-man against their manliest developer in a challenge to beat their latest game in the shortest time possible. Their last challenge for a Fallout 3 speedrun ended in a whiplashingly 75 minutes with only seconds between the two competitors.
As Skyrim is slated to have over 300 hours of gameplay, I can imagine that the speedrun for this game would be significantly longer. Developer Jeff Browne was able to complete the game at 2:16:30, very impressive.
However, QA tester Sam Bernstein, who beat Jeff in the previous Fallout 3 run, was able to score a run of 2:16:10, beating Jeff again by 20 seconds! Well done Sam, your character selection speed skills are unmatched….until the rest of us get a chance to try.
