IN A NUTSHELL:
- One of the users who already have access to the Xbox Series X, used it to run The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt;
- The SSD of Microsoft's new platform prevents any loading screens from displaying when using the fast travel system - the game simply loads too fast.
One of the streamers launched The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on a test copy of the Xbox Series X console received from Microsoft. The game looks very good (full, two-hour gameplay can be found here), but the most interesting detail concerns the fast-travel system. When using it on Microsoft's new hardware, we won't see any loading screens - the world will be up and running so fast that they won't have time left to be displayed.
The game's fast travel system on Xbox Series X looks more like a weird glitch than a proper game mechanic - the world just breaks down, disappears and then appears again.
Interestingly, we're talking about the standard version of Wild Hunt that works on XSX thanks to backwards compatibility. It's worth recalling that in 2021 the game will receive a free update, which will enable it to take advantage of the full potential of next-gen platforms (both Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5). Thanks to this, The Witcher 3 will look and work even better (it will use, among others, ray tracing).
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt debuted in May 2015 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Last year there was also a release dedicated to Nintendo Switch.
