Speedrunner Beats “Divinity: Original Sin 2” In Under 40 minutes!

Speedrunner Beats “Divinity: Original Sin 2” In Under 40 minutes!

It has only been 3 weeks since Larian Studio’s highly-successful CRPG, Divinity: Original Sin 2  was released. And already, a speedrunner had just set the first record for the fastest completion time of the game, so far.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 – Hold My Beer…

That speedrunner goes by the name, Onin who beat the game at an incredible 37 minutes and 48 seconds. Usually RPGs would take a minimum of 40-50 hours to finish, and for completionists, that number can go up into the hundreds.

To give you a brief rundown on how this impressive feat was accomplished, Onin played as Fane with the Lone Wolf Talent, an undead character whose “Play Deadskill was advantageously abused to scurry around battles, then teleporting away afterwards.

There is a lot more to this, and even more impressive is that all of this was done within the confines of Divinity: Original Sin 2‘s  “rules”. This is certainly a testament to how the game can be creatively played in, well, almost anyway imaginable.

Divinity: Original Sin 2  is currently available for PC via Steam and GOG.
