Skyrim QA Tester, Sam Bernstein, has managed to complete Skyrim’s main quest line in 2 hours 16 minutes and 10 seconds.
The Speedrun Competition is a bit of a tradition over at Bethesda, where a member of the QA team goes up against a member of the development team. The rules state that the competitors are not allowed to use any cheats, but the competitors could choose any path they wished to complete the main story quest.
The final times of the speedrun then were:
Sam Bernstein – 2 Hours 16 Minutes 10 Seconds
Jeff Browne – 2 Hours 16 Minutes 30 Seconds
Just a 20 second gap seperated the two, with both choosing different paths. Now, don’t expect that you’ll be able to do the same as these guys have spent the last couple of years on Skyrim and so know it very well. I’ll probably be spending my first 2 hours trying to climb a mountain.
