Someone Beat Prey in Under 20 Minutes Because Nobody Has Time for Mimic Shenanigans (VIDEO)
Does it sometimes feel like there is not enough time in the day to play a new video game? That definitely was not the case for speedrunner DraQu, because he was able to beat Prey in under 20 minutes. The sci-fi shooter was just released on Friday, May 5, and DraQu conquered it in less time than some spend installing updates. 19:34 was all he needed to conquer the latest title from Bethesda Softworks and Arkane Studios. Needless to say, they might not be too happy with the development team after seeing how DraQu went about his speedrun.
Jumping through ceilings, ignoring the protagonist’s annoying brother Alex, and using the GLOO Cannon to reach new heights, DraQu beat Prey in record time and with minimal slip-ups. The video is truly a pleasure to watch. That is, of course, if one does not mind spoilers and would like to know what the entire game is about before diving into life aboard the Talos I. You can check out the dizzying speedrun in the video below:
Crazy, right? It’s safe to say that speedrunning is not for everyone. Some people like to dive into the story of games headfirst, and this can take a considerable amount of time. DraQu even mentions during his speedrun that he “wouldn’t actually mind playing through this game.” Of course, this comes after scaling a wall for four minutes with the GLOO Cannon, which is daunting all on its own. His speedrun before the 19:34 effort clocked in at 44:06, over twice as long as the latest one. Next up – somebody needs to beat Prey in under 10 minutes!
