The speedrunning community has been hard at work dissecting The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in an attempt to shave a few seconds off of the world record completion time. One of the main time-consuming areas in these runs is completing the four initial shrines in the Great Plateau so Link can retrieve his trusty paraglider. A YouTuber by the name of mety333 has discovered a way to leave the Great Plateau before completing this prerequisite, although his victory was short-lived.


It turns out that it’s possible to leave the Great Plateau for a short period of time, but Link will be teleported back pretty quickly. While it may seem like a failure right now, this may just be the first step in a larger process to skip the Great Plateau altogether in future speedruns. We look forward to seeing what comes next!
