Game Ventures, a community driven platform that sets out to challenge players and push the boundaries of what can be done in a video game has just issued one of its biggest challenges yet. Resident Evil Village speedrunners get ready to break some records.
With many titles gaining popularity in the speedrunning community, one recent release that has players trying to outdo one another is none other than Resident Evil Village. With a trophy that challenges players to beat it in under three hours, many have come up with some rather creative ways to even blow past that, clocking in with just less than two hours on some runs. Talk about insane!
To help incentives all this, Game Venture has issued a new public bounty that challenges these speedrunners to beat the game in less than an 1 hour and 40 minutes. Seems pretty quick, but those who have been keeping up with REVillage speedrunners already know that a number of runners have already shattered this record on their own personal accord.
Well, what better way to prove that it can be done again and to compete against fellow runners? Enter Game Ventures.
