12:40PM - Outer Wilds
Outer Wilds is an incredible journey across time, space, and back again. There isn't much time to see everything, given that everything's on a loop. However, thestrangepie will endeavor to see the whole thing in an hour flat. This will be a treat to anybody who's enjoyed Outer Wilds since its release a few years ago.
2:00PM - Destiny 2
Ongoing games are a hard animal to run quickly, but there's a full blown Destiny 2 crew ready to take on the Deep Stone Crypt raid from the Beyond Light expansion. And they're such a well-oiled machine, they plan to conquer it in just a half hour. This promises to be a very different kind of speedrun, as six players dive in for this particular venture. If you like what you see and want to try your hand at this raid yourself, there's a guide for that.
4:25PM - Doom Eternal
We're quite acquainted with BloodShot9001 and his journey in speedrunning Doom Eternal on Nightmare difficulty. After dazzling everyone during last year's SGDQ, he's back again. This time, he's ready to take on both of the Ancient Gods DLCs back to back. Tune in to see what challenges await him.
Summer Games Done Quick 2021 Online will take place from now through Saturday, July 10. For more, check out the Games Done Quick website and be sure to watch all of the action from Twitch.
