In the world of Elden Ring, where countless adventures await, one devoted fan has achieved the unthinkable – breaking the game’s playtime counter. Elden Ring Enthusiast Shatters known for its sprawling open world and extensive content, often demands more than 50 or even 100 hours for a single playthrough.
This intrepid player managed to max out the in-game timer, which stops at a staggering 999 hours, 59 minutes, and 59 seconds. Some fellow players have humorously suggested that it might be time for this dedicated gamer to step away from the virtual realm and embrace the real world, considering that spending a thousand hours on a single character is quite extraordinary.
This remarkable feat was accomplished by a Reddit user named Shalhadra, who uncovered the game’s timer’s curious limitation. Even though they had reached an astonishing level 471, still far from the game’s maximum level of 713, the timer refused to roll over to the coveted 1,000-hour mark. Shalhadra, playing on a PS5, now has the option to check their total playtime via the console’s home menu.
Intriguingly, Shalhadra revealed that their enduring interest in Elden Ring was partly due to the game’s multiplayer component. This revelation prompted discussions among fellow gamers about how much time one should dedicate to gaming daily, with opinions varying on whether two hours a day was considered excessive or moderate.
Aside from the timer talk, gamers also couldn’t help but admire Shalhadra’s character, strikingly resembling Ciri from The Witcher 3. While there’s appreciation for their dedication, the prevailing sentiment among the gaming community is a gentle nudge for Shalhadra to take a well-deserved break from Elden Ring
