According to Twitter user Craig, Until Dawn on PlayStation 4 has virtually no loading time now. Craig spotted the difference following the patch update, which significantly improved load times for a few titles.

He tweeted “Right, so it appears these #PS5 B/C updates that #PS4 games are getting are even having a huge effect on load times on the current gen system. Case in point: #UntilDawn on #PS4 now doesn’t load at all. This tech must have been used in #GhostOfTsushima ?? Very impressive!”

In addition to this, there is also a YouTube video, spotted by Video Games Chronicle, which compares the load times for The Last of Us Remastered before and after the patch. Take a look at it below:

This indeed great news for the fans considering improved load times will also improve the game’s overall experience. Although, this will be a common sight when it comes to playing titles on the PS5. Its lightning-fast SSD will ensure that games will load almost instantly. Sony has already shown games like Ratchet & Clank, Godfall with almost zero load screens. This will definitely be a game-changer and prove to be useful for next-gen games.

The PS5 also recently confirmed great news about its backwards compatible titles. Around 99% of the PlayStation 4 games will be backwards compatible, where the PS5 will improve the performance of a lot of them.

So far, Sony has almost made all the major announcements regarding the PS5. Although, one particular detail that still remains is the list of expandable drives compatible with it. It is a crucial aspect considering next-gen games will require additional storage.
