Baldur's Gate 3 Developers React to Under 6 Minute Speedrun 

Megtekintés 81 E
97% 798 17

Even in Early Access, Baldur's Gate 3 is an incredibly long game. So, of course, we were surprised to see that speedrunner Professor Palmer can finish the game in under six minutes. With a playthrough this quick, we knew we had to show Larian Studios what was possible in their game. So ride along with Alexandre Barrette (QA Lead), Farhang Namdar (World Building Director), and Nick Pechenin (Lead Systems Designer) as they watch and react to years of their hard work getting crushed in a matter of minutes.

You have to admit a game meant for hours to complete is instead done in mere minutes is faulty by design. A huge oversight by the developers to overlook this. As a result, here we have a speedrun tat obliterated their hard work like nothing. Their comment on patching things in future is sad, u dont c such travesty in older quality games

I definitely thought they needed a shortcut for jump when I played, that's for sure.

I guess there is gonna be a lot of other updates for these exploits xD
Kelyaan 19 órája
It's funny if the devs think they can fix this - They have no idea about speed running, They'll just not update.
The game is now in alpha testing, ofc speedrunners will want to beat whole game (which will be fixed), not the alpha. So in this particular case you're wrong

Speedrunners expose weaknesses in video game design; also exposes the game was not properly tested.

@Bill T There really is no excuse or explanation for a player to just run through a video game in 6 minutes that took months to years to create with a multimillion dollar budget. I am currently playing a 4 kilobyte chess game that took roughly less than a year to create nearly 35 years ago with a fraction of the sound design budget of Baldur's Gate 3 that provides far more of a challenge_AND_ I cannot speedrun through it nor type in cheat codes to 'win'. I never cheat in video games...BTW. Y'know what? I have a funny feeling you're gonna try and find an excuse. :)

I don't think that's a fair shake to the devs. There is so much that goes into designing an open world game like this and speedrunners specifically dig for exploits that people wouldn't normally stumble upon in casual play. That doesn't mean it wasn't properly tested. I'd much rather QA time be spent on keeping the game from softlocking/crashing when doing tasks that casual players might encounter.

first of all theres no way any one should be able to jump so far.

A character with high Strength + Psionics can jump that far and that's perfectly reasonable.

I will not purchase BG3, until I can play it on GFN. Hopefully the other over 5 million GFN users will boycott. The developers feel they have the right to make deals for exclusivity to force you to buy for a platform. I guess the developers do, but I have the right not to o buy their game!

I want to see an AC Valhalla 100% speed run in under 6 min.
Fixing will take more time than making another game without bugs
Imagine working on something for years only to watch someone completely bypass all your hard work and beat it in such a short time. It's strangely flattering that someone would love your game so much to go through the trouble of learning it so well to beat it as fast as possible.
Professor Palmer
The skip by going through the floor isn't actually a jump. It's a throw. it's actually a pretty in depth trick. You have to cast jump on laezel, she jumps to middle to trigger surprise initiative guaranteeing she goes first. Then, we stealth with the other character to not join the fight, jump to center, and then THROW Laezel up to the top.

Great run Prof!
should this be titled EARLY ACCESS SPEEDRUN? The game isn't finished, there's going to be a lot more to the game. With a crappy title like that, you'd think this was for the full game. if this video is left after the game is complete.

You gotta admit that top-down view then jump to the next floor is pretty insane.

So it's actually a pretty in depth trick. You have to cast jump on laezel, she jumps to middle to trigger surprise initiative guaranteeing she goes first. Then, we stealth with the other character to not join the fight, jump to center, and then THROW Laezel up to the top.

Best ever fastrun in my life
I get it's a speed run, I'm sure the devs know their story, characters, routes, and fun varieties of strategy and actually experiencing the games, loot, world, stealthing, exploring and experiencing a story and making character friendships are a major part. People always gonna figure out how to do things fast for the hell of it, which is fine, but this is essentially just skipping the entire game

David Hudspith
He didn’t actually play the game... a speed run, to me at least, implies that you play the game. He just jumped past all the encounters. I’m sure, helpful for the devs to see how the mechanics can be abused.
Professor Palmer
You should see my run for All Quests. The world record is 2:24:10
History History
He did play the game. He turned his system on, loaded it up etc. otherwise he couldn't jump past all the encounters.
Jesse Baldridge
There are different categories of speedruns. This is in a category that allows you to break the game, the only point is to get from beginning to end as fast as possible. There are loads of games that have "glitchless" or "100% complete" speedruns.
Matthew Walsh
Matthew Walsh 2 napja
Well, thats just what my character would do....
Davide Valenti
Oh yes, they got it right at the beginning: this game absolutely needs a hotkey for Jump.
@burningphoenix36 that's definitely fair lol barbarians tho xDD
@Wingoftheangel Ooh yeah we’ve never had that opportunity because theres always at least one person who’s like I barge forward or the less stealthy people split from the rest and do something else to aid in the mission.
@burningphoenix36 I know, I'm in 5 d&d 5e groups rn myself, just, as a video game, if you wanted to say 'we are all stealthing to this area' you could have it set so the entire party moves, but they still make their own dice rolls. Would just be a fast option lol
B-but it simulates what dnd is like thats the idea.
and having everyone having to jump individuality or stealth individually--makes it annoying to even have party members lmao

the last game I EVER want to watch somebody speed run is an RPG like Baldur's Gate. it's like my kid cousin that beat the Skyrim (main) campaign in 6 hours. one sitting. he did NOTHING else in the game. then said the game was kind of boring.

@Source i hope not, but charging 60 dollars for act 1 in progress was unnecessary and unappreciative to its customers. Open beta should not cost this much, and the original bg2 had about 300 hrs total of gameplay, bg3 beta had about 25. Idk about you but 25 × 4 is 100.
Source 2 napja
@matthew cote Baldur's Gate 3 is literally 40 hours in total so far and we're only 75% through Act 1... of 4. And Act 1 is said to be one of the smaller acts. We're talking upwards of 200 hours of content on full release. There are many complaints one could make about this game, but lack of content is not going to be one of them.

I'm not a fan of speed runs with glitches. I do appreciate the art of finding those shortcuts, but I definitely prefer a normal fast run.
Geminibou 2 napja
@Skate and Game it depends on the game honestly some games have glitches that can improve your time but is.much more difficult to pull off so it has the risk reward effect
Skate and Game
same, finding those glitches take some skill but finishing the game the way it was intended to be played in a faster time than anyone else is much more impressive in my opinion.

Even worse (or better, depending on your point of view): I believe they said there's no vertical cap on jumping _at_ _all_ in order to make it feel better in top-down.

Depends on the game.
The speedrun becomes the game, it's time chasing. If you've ever done it you find there is a great pleasure in finding a quicker way to do something. The evolution of my Hitman flamingo run was a dramatic transformation from my initial path to the last honed version.
