You've probably heard about this by now - The Coalition is going back and optimising Gears 5 for Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, complete with a 120fps multiplayer option and lots of visual improvements.

Those who have been lucky enough to preview the Xbox Series X have been getting hands-on with this version of the game recently, and the load times seem to be impressive to say the least!

As demonstrated in the video above, loading a brand-new campaign for Gears 5 on Xbox Series X now just takes eight seconds in all, compared to 34 seconds on the Xbox One X and 44 on the Xbox One.

We've heard similarly good things about Dirt 5 and Yakuza Like A Dragon's load times over the past week too, so you can look forward to a lot less waiting around with the Xbox Series X|S!

Impressed by this? Looking forward to trying out the optimised version of Gears 5? Let us know below.
