The Outer Worlds hasn’t been out for about a month but it already has an impressive speedrun record. According to HowLongToBeat, the average time to play the game is about 12 hours. If you want to beat it with some sidequests, that playtime crawls up to closer to 22 hours. If you want to play it fast? That will win you less than 2% of the run time at 10 minutes and 49 seconds. That was the case for Sharo who has already topped the Speedrun.com time sheets for The Outer Worlds Any%.
And here are the game directors of The Outer Worlds reacting to their latest game being beaten in less time than it takes to drink a coffee. This is a different speedrun by CreeperHntr. His time in this run would rank him 17th in the world.
