Some people just don't know when to quit, do they? Proving he's the ultimate glutton for punishment, Kai Cenat has announced that he's returning to FromSoftware's world of Soulslikes for more marathon runs. We hope Adin Ross has enough money to keep making all those bets.

Soulslike runs are nothing new, and while we've seen people take on Elden Ring with a harp and Demon's Souls with some Donkey Konga bongos, the American streamer attempted to do the seemingly impossible by besting Elden Ring in one continuous run.

Kai Cenat reveals Soulslike marathon schedule

Although Cenat got to sleep during his time, he eventually thrashed the Elden Beast after a whopping 1701 deaths and just shy of 167 hours. There were tears, there were tantrums, and now, he wants to do it all over again. Not content with just finishing Elden Ring, he's mapped out a schedule of Soulslike marathons. 

Wasting no time diving back into FromSoftware's sword-swinging series, Cenat has confirmed his next streaming marathon will see him tackle Elden Ring's Shadow of the Erdtree DLC. This will be followed by Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, before taking a bit of a break to have some fun with Rockstar Games' Bully.

After some much-needed respite, Kai Cenat will take us to Yharnam for a Bloodborne marathon, before rounding off with an all-star saga of all three Dark Souls games. We don't know why he's missed out on Demon's Souls, but maybe he'll return to it at a future date.

There are no dates for when Kai Cenat will draw his sword once again, but with Shadow of the Erdtree up first, and the game not releasing until June 21, it must be after then. This at least gives him some time to collect his thoughts and rest those tired trigger fingers.

The news doesn't end there, and hoping to raise his profile further, Cenat has confirmed that his Shadow of the Erdtree run will have Travis Scott by his side. Cenat has put rumours to bed that Bandai Namco sponsored his Elden Ring run, however, we've got to admit it's been a lucrative and unexpected match made in heaven. 

If running Soulslikes wasn't enough, Cenat teased a Hunger Games-inspired stream with the biggest creators around. He claims he's been working on the idea for the past six months: "For the first time ever, we will be trying to plan, it's already in motion, we will be hosting the very first live, fully professional, fully organized live Hunger Games. Okay? Let me cook! Hear me out!"

Cenat is remaining tight-lipped on what this Hunger Games stream involves and who will be taking part, but he mentioned drones, hospitals, and combat suits for what sounds like a mind-boggling undertaking. Squeezing that in alongside his Soulslike slog means we should probably get used to seeing him on our screens.
