With the hands-on preview going live for the Xbox Series X this week, SSD has the ability to see how fast the final games can now load, with no new patches on the system. But if you want to see how it will directly affect your favorite sport, then look no further Tom Warren of The Verge, Which recorded a bunch of Destiny 2 footage on Series X.
The video below shows some of the different aspects of how Destiny 2 now loads and plays with the new hard drives on the Series X, namely startup, loading into towers and planets, and how responsive the menu is becomes.
Check it out:
For me, what I’m seeing here greatly affects my PC’s playing experience on NVMe SSDs, because the load time and everything seems to be the same, instead of minus 30 fps to 60 fps (again, called the series Will be patched in X. / PS5 version of the game by Bungie at launch).
It probably sounds at least a little better than the $ 200 external Seagate drive I currently connected to my PS4 actually, with the sole purpose of making the Destiny 2 on the console less unpleasant, which it accomplished. I’ve said before that players who currently use an SSD on consoles or PCs are probably not going to be blown away by either the PS5 or Series X versions of the game, and yet for console players, who end up on endgame Stuck with, the long-loading version of the game to date, yes, it’s like night and day. Hell, if you ask me, the fixing menu lag alone is the price of admission.
Many Destiny 2 players may also consider switching from PC to console. Once the game starts running at 60 fps, the main reason is that they will be able to avoid theater in PvP, as they tend to come to the console. Are very difficult, and destroy. Upper level of gameplay on PC. But as Tom notes here, one thing is missing from at least this test version of Destiny 2 on Series X, a FOV slider, something that is another big boon for PC Play, making the gameplay feel “faster” It is difficult to describe, you have experienced a difference for yourself. There is no word on whether Bungie is joining the game or not in the next generation patch, but it is somewhat unlikely.
I’m curious about two things now: 1) how performance will improve what we’re seeing here once Bungy actually patches the game for the next gen and 2) if PS5 load time is less than these Will happen. Sony has been extending the properties of its custom SSD from day one, and if it can reduce the load time even further, it can be a big deal. But if it can’t, many may wonder what all the fuss was about at first.
Regardless, for many players this should be an upgrade. Current SSD players may not be so keen on the difference, but it is certainly the vast, vast minority of console players at the moment.
