Dishonored 2 Beaten In 32 Minutes

Voetiem shows off some impressive Dishonored 2 skills in this speedrun.

When a game like Dishonored 2 comes out there are a few types of players who play the game: people who are new to the series, returning fans, and then the different sort of player altogether: the speedrunner.

A speedrunner who goes by the name Voetiem has already created a route for an extremely fast run of Dishonored 2, clocking in at an astounding 32:17. The Australian runner has now completed the game quicker than what it would take for me to download the game on Steam, let alone get from the start to the finish.

Finding unique routes through a game is part of the fun of speedrunning, and Dishonored 2 makes it more interesting with its array of abilities.

What makes him able to do this is Dishonored 2’s unique open-world structure and the various ways players can approach a challenge. Voetiem has been able to find a path through the world that allows for the minimum amount of frames being shown. It’s amazing to think that the game, not yet a week old, has already been beaten and broken to the point where it can be finished so quickly.

Though, given the fact the game is still new, there are bound to be a host of glitches, tricks, and shortcuts discovered, allowing speedrunners like Voetiem to shave even more time off the clock.

When it comes to speedrunning, it’s all about saving frames, the fewer the frames the quicker the game plays, the faster you’ll get to the end. Recently we reported on a group of  ‘runners of Super Mario 64 who managed to do the previously impossible underwater-door-open glitch that resulted in them accomplishing a sub-5 minute run.

The desire to go fast and shave off precious seconds isn’t only limited to fast cars and Olympic races, even the humble gamer feels a sense of pride in their speedruns.
