Xbox One's fast-loading feature rolls out today

06 July 2018

At any rate, if you want to try FastStart for yourself, it's available today as part of Microsoft's July Xbox Update. Until July 12, you can also get the chance to pick up some soccer-themed cosmetics either through fan gifts or by purchasing them with Ramen, The Darwin Project's in-game currency, in the item shop. This update was previously tested with Xbox Insiders last month and comes with FastStart on select games, the Groups feature in Games and Apps, and more. "FastStart works by identifying which files are needed to begin playing and prioritizes the download of those files first, enabling you to quickly jump into full-fidelity gameplay while the remainder of your title downloads in the background", said Major Nelson. You're also able to buy them if you wish to take that route.

Both Xbox and PlayStation include similar features which allow users to play your game when a certain amount of the game has been downloaded - in Xbox's case, it's called "ready to start". It's that simple. What's more, it's now enabled for select English language titles in our Xbox Game Pass catalog, and will expand to more games in more languages over time. They are also tied to one's Xbox Live account, so they can be used across multiple consoles. More Search OptionsPlayers can now press the Y button while in the dashboard to bring up the search box. You can add groups to Home and Guide, and there should be one Group made as soon as your update is complete.
