God of War Trilogy World Record Beaten by Speedrunner; Plays God of War, II and III in 4:15:54

How fast can you finish God of War, God of War II and God of War III in one sitting? Most probably much slower than Twitch user and speedrunner exe_de, who beat the previous world record time by 5 minutes, clearing all three games in four hours, fifteen minutes and 54 seconds.

Exe is a veteran of the speedrunning scene, and like most speedrunners he uses some really unbelievable glitches that allow him to skip several scenes of the game (often surprising even the developers, as we saw at Sony Santa Monica’s charity speedrun event a few days ago), at time requiring extreme precision and timing to execute actions exactly in the right frame.

If you want to see the world record run, you can check out the recording below, but of course it includes spoilers. If you’re one of the ten people around the world that hasn’t played the three main God of War games yet, you might want to abstain.
