Someone Already Beat Prey In Less Than 20 Minutes

Yesterday, speedrunner DraQu beat the sci-fi shooting sim Prey in just 45 minutes. Today, he's knocked it down to 20. This is a game that has been out for three days.

You're safe to watch the first few minutes without spoiling too much, just to see how he pulled it off. The short version: DraQu uses GLOO to build blocks in the air that he can use to reach inaccessible locations, clip through walls, and generally break the whole game. The highlight is a four-minute climb that takes him all the way up to the arboterum. (Stop at around 8:00 if you don't want any spoilers.)

For context, Prey has taken most people around 20 hours to finish. But Talos I is way less scary when everything's broken.


    Wow, looks like it's fairly easy to clip through walls. That time is going to plummet.

      There are already two runs posted on that are ahead of this one. Good chance someone will beat this in under 15 minutes before today is over.

    i'd call these hackruns instead of speedruns

      Yeah. I mean, there's an art to that and some people appreciate that, sure... just not me. I can't relate and don't care.

      I'd be a lot more interested in how fast the game can be finished through pure efficiency with no glitches/hacks. That number would actually mean something to me.

        Yeah I've never been a fan of glitch runs like this. Different skill set for sure, but one I don't care for at all.
