Xbox Series X Greatly Reduces Load Times for Many Xbox One Games - NewsWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 01 October 2020 / 1,822 Views
The next-generation consoles are less than two months away from launching and one of the most talked-about aspects of the consoles is the inclusion of a solid-state drive (SSD) and how they will greatly reduce load times for games.
Several gaming outlets have released hands-on previews of the Xbox Series X today and The Verge has tested the loading times of Xbox One games on the Xbox Series X and comparing it to the loading times on the Xbox One X. The load times have greatly improved for many games using the Xbox Series X SSD.
Sea of Thieves saw load times drop from one minute and 21 seconds on the Xbox One X to just 20 seconds on the Xbox Series X, while Destiny 2 dropped from one minute to 52 seconds to 43 seconds. Warframe now takes 25 seconds to load and The Outer World loads in an impressive six seconds.
Red Dead Redemption 2 also improved in loading times, but not by as much in terms of percentages. It went from one minute and 35 seconds to 52 seconds. No Man's Sky went from two minutes and 13 seconds to one minute and 27 seconds.
Check out the complete comparisons below:
|Game||Xbox Series X||Xbox One X|
|CoD: Warzone||16 seconds||21 seconds|
|Red Dead Redemption 2||52 seconds||1 min, 35 seconds|
|The Outer Worlds||6 seconds||27 seconds|
|Evil Within 2||33 seconds||43 seconds|
|Sea of Thieves||20 seconds||1 min, 21 seconds|
|Warframe||25 seconds||1 min, 31 seconds|
|AC: Odyssey||30 seconds||1 min, 7 seconds|
|No Man's Sky||1 min, 27 seconds||2 mins, 13 seconds|
|Destiny 2||43 seconds||1 min, 52 seconds|
The Xbox Series X and Series S will launch worldwide on November 10.
