The Xbox Series X and Series S don’t have any exclusives to speak of as far as their launch lineup is concerned- but it’s not a small launch lineup by any means. Along with several new releases and cross-gen games, quite a few older games are going to get dedicated next-gen enhancements.
One of these is Gears 5, and we recently got a taste of how the game will be leveraging the Xbox Series X’s hardware in one particular way. As shown in a video uploaded to YouTube by Stallion83 (which you can view below), Gears 5’s load times on the Xbox Series X have been significantly cut down.
A new single player campaign loads in a little less than eight seconds, as compared to 34 seconds on the Xbox One X and 36 seconds on the base Xbox One. Meanwhile, the game loads a multiplayer match in about 12 seconds on the Xbox Series X, as opposed to 20 seconds on the Xbox One X and 26 seconds on the base Xbox One.
