Shadow of the Tomb Raider Developers React to 48 Minute Speedrun


Every week, IGN invites the creators of the biggest and best video games to watch -- often in horror -- as the world's top players break their creations and finish their games at record speed. This is Devs React to Speedruns.
It takes most players between 12 and 35 hours to beat Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Watch as Eidos Montreal's Jason Dozois (Narrative Lead) and Matthew Thomas Labelle (Lead Dev QA) give their hilarious thoughts on what they think of speedrunner blancw's incredible run through their game.

    It's so funny how the devs mock their own game, like Lara recognizing the plane from like 10 feet away. It's like the hidden stuff on items where you have to look at them at a very weird angle, where you cannot see what's going on.... Lara seems very.... "gifted"

    Yeah it's ridiculous 😂 I mean you gotta have a sense of humour. Like the perfectly timed things happening at this exact moment when your character shows up, it's absurd, but it still creates the "effect". And also all the absurd stuff on a technical level, it's brilliant. Altough with all their comments, I wish they took this little more serious and made the next game less "Woah I see this object right in front of me and I have to name it so the players knows what it is" lol

    At what point in history did speed-runs get abused and turned into glitch-runs, this is NOT by any standard of the term a speed-run. All it is, is a glitch finding test run Plain and simple. Go back to Quake and witness the purity of the term "speed-run". Can you So called Devs stop blurring the lines between the 2 and rename this garbage.

    I won't play this game because there is no first person option. I'm not 14. I don't need to look at my characters backside the whole game or need the handicap the 3rd person view forces. I wanna play her character through her eyes as it should be. Some guys can do a 48 minute speed run but no one can make a proper first person view that would have 1) gotten the game tons more sales and 2) created tons more fans of the game devs. Not a smart business model. This is why games like the Elder Scrolls series excels. Why don't more devs get that?
