Will fast travel on Xbox Series X actually be fast?

We’re all too familiar with the dreaded wait time of Xbox ‘fast travel’, asking yourself whether it’s frozen or not, popping to get a drink and some snacks hoping it’ll be done but you return to that same loading screen… Only one option left, reset, for it to load the moment your finger leaves the power button… (argh!) Hold on to your hats, this could all be a thing of the past! 

Thanks to one streamer’s video running The Witcher 3 on an Xbox Series X we managed to catch a preview of the super-fast fast travel loading times! The obvious reason to be excited is that we won’t have to sit around waiting for it to load. Along with not having time to go and grab some snacks so it’s a win-win! Don’t get us wrong, we LOVE snacks but in moderation and especially going into the Christmas months, extra snacks are definitely not needed! Don’t worry if you already own the game this will be a free update!

The clip:

Granted the aesthetics aren’t quite there, the Xbox Series X actually manages to load the game before the loading screen! We always thought the loading screen came first or, is that how fast it really is? We just hope this is the case for GTA as well! 

The Witcher 3 is coming to both Xbox Series X and PS5 with an improved next-gen edition. It’ll feature ray tracing for the first time. 

We’re super excited for the launch of both of these Next-Gen Consoles but, which one will you be getting? Now crossplay is becoming the new standard will exclusives be the main turning point? Let us know what you think.
