  • Any% Glitchless: Triggering the end credits and reaching NG+ as quickly as possible without using glitches or glitched shortcuts.

Timing Rules

Because of the long and inconsistent loading times on the PS3, the official run time for Any% is counted as the In-game time (IGTIn-Game Time), displayed when you go to the Pantheon at the top of the Nexus with a different character. The different character must have at least cleared the first area of Boletaria and must be online to go to the Pantheon.
