Elden Ring speedrunner Distortion2 is back on top with the world's first sub-20 minute run.
Distortion2 has now followed that with a speedrun time of 18:58.
He streamed for 15 hours on Twitch doing run after run until, eventually, he set the new record.
"Thank you everyone who was there and supported me during this insane stream," he said in a follow-up tweet.

It should be noted that Distortion2 is still playing the game on the old patch, version 1.02. A recent update rebalanced many of the game's weapons and abilities which would impact speedrunning strategies.
For now, Distortion2 is sticking with the older version and uses glitches to skip large sections of the game.
