New Xbox Series X Clips Show Off Load Times, Quick Resume Feature (VIDEO)
Back ye olden days of gaming, load times were horrendously slow by modern standard. As time goes on they’ve become faster and faster, getting fans into the action and getting us that much closer to having seamless transitions between sections of a game. Being the most powerful Microsoft console yet, the Xbox Series X aims to have some of the fastest load times, and a series of new videos showcase the speed fans can expect when the console releases to the public later this year.
The first video that was released compares State of Decay 2‘s load times on both the Xbox One X and the Xbox Series X. The video is fairly straightforward and shows the load times from the Xbox Series X being significantly faster than its predecessor, sitting at a meager 9 to 10 seconds while the Xbox One X takes about 50. State of Decay 2 is a current-gen game and things might be a little different on new titles made for the Xbox Series X, but it’ll be interesting to see regardless.
The Xbox One X currently has a feature that allows players to quickly jump back into a game that they were playing previously without booting the game up. The Xbox Series X is looking to take that idea one step further, allowing players to have multiple games in a suspended state and allowing players to quickly jump between them right where they left off previously. Check out the Quick Resume video below:
The Xbox Series X doesn’t have an official release date quite yet, though the console is aiming for a Holiday 2020 release. There is also a possibility that this release date might be pushed back due to the COVID-19 issues currently plaguing the world, though there’s been no official word on whether that will truly happen.
