Dirt 5's Load Times Described As 'Blisteringly Fast' On Xbox Series X

In case you missed it, a bunch of previews for Codemasters' Dirt 5 running on Xbox Series X went live earlier today, and pretty much everyone has been highlighting the game's fast load times.

The general consensus is that Dirt 5 does a great job of cutting down waiting times, loading "detailed environments with several cars in just under 15 seconds", according to Game Informer.

Here's what Australian outlet Press Start had to say about the "blisteringly fast" speeds:

"Dirt 5’s load times on the Xbox Series X are blisteringly fast. From the second I clicked into the game, it took about fifteen seconds for me to be in the main menu, and a further thirteen seconds to get into a race. It’s just nice to be able to head into career, head back out and browse cars as I please without having to worry about any loading screens at all."

The folks over at COGConnected also highlighted this area of the game, pointing out that "you aren’t spending an eternity waiting in load screens like you do with most current-gen racers."

We've been hearing a lot of good things about how quickly the Xbox Series X can load games via its speedy internal SSD recently, and this is just the latest example of that. No more waiting around!
