The PS5 and Xbox Series X mark the start of a new generation of gaming, even if it’s not all that obvious amid the cross-gen titles. Both consoles are about more than just better graphics – their hardware and features could help influence game design in the future. Let’s take a look at 11 such design choices that will need to change.

Loading Screen Tips

With the advent of solid state drives in consoles, the days of tips and tutorial messages in loading screens are coming to an end. This doesn’t just extend to tips either – lore messages about the world are also in danger of being skipped over. As a result, developers will need to rethink how tutorials and lore are implemented in-game. One great example can be seen in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, where the characters go through a celebratory rendition of their first meeting, performing different actions and familiarizing one with the controls. Quicker loading times also open up avenues for more environmental story-telling as players glean the lore and state of the world by observing their surroundings rather than simply reading it on a loading screen.
