Resident Evil 2 Remake loads in 20 seconds on Xbox Series X

The immense power of the next-gen hardware was once again demonstrated as the Resident Evil 2 remake on Xbox Series X loads in 20 seconds (i.e. from the start of the game to the save load).

Remakes of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 are some of the greatest games on consoles of the current generation. However, their high-quality visuals take their toll on loading, especially on the base PS4 and Xbox One. These problems can be fixed on PC if you have an SSD for gaming.

The Resident Evil 2 remake will be playable on Xbox Series X thanks to backward compatibility. The internal SSD in the Xbox Series X delivers blazing fast boot times, as demonstrated by astaranx on Twitter. According to the video, Resident Evil 2 loads in just 20 seconds on Xbox Series X. It should be mentioned that part of the download includes logos and splash screens, so it could be even faster if it could be skipped. In-game loading has been shown to be even faster, with Resident Evil 3 loading in about three seconds on Xbox Series X.

The Xbox Series X hardware intends to cut boot times with its SSD. This has been demonstrated many times by people who received the system before launch and demonstrated what it can do with the current generation of games. A prime example of this is The Witcher 3, which loads so quickly that the textures did not have time to load. It looks like the long load times of the PS4 and Xbox One era are coming to an end thanks to next-gen hardware.

The Resident Evil series is gaining traction in the PS5 and Xbox Series X generation, Resident Evil Village is currently in development while rumors of a Resident Evil 4 remake are circulating. These games won't be released for a while, but fans are still can enjoy the current generation of Resident Evil games thanks to backward compatibility, and they will be faster than ever. The Resident Evil 2 remake is widely regarded as one of the best games of the PS4 / Xbox One era, and it's worth going back and experiencing it on next-gen systems.
