Cuts down on downtime so much, might be my favorite feature. Huge kudos to whoever it was at respawn that made it possible:
The genius is that the pregame lobby loading time is spent while you’re choosing your characters. That’s why there’s a forced time countdown. They hid it really well.ID: efsubiiID: efssw55
This. It's not that there isn't necessarily a pregame lobby, it's just so well integrated that you don't really notice it's there. Fantastic design, really.
Also how fast you drop in fortnite just feel like an eternityID: efs6bsi
In terms of just speed of getting to a location, I believe it goes Black out > Fortnite > Apex > PUBG.
As someone who regularilly doesnt load in until the pubg plane is half way across the island (including lobby), this is a little worrying.ID: efsoxmy
Somehow, some way, Respawn managed to make loading in this game virtually unnoticeable. I have no idea how heavy PUBG's loading is - never played it - but Apex feels like it takes a fraction of the time Fortnite does, and that's already a pretty optimized game. I wouldn't be greatly worried.ID: efssysi
Don't worry, there's still plenty of preload time, it's the time you spend selecting your character. They just don't dump you into an arbitrary space like FN.ID: efstd9s
I have the same problem in Pubg, even worse sometimes. No problems in Apex at all.
Agree. Such a well thought out game. Incredible.
I do love how fast it is, but I kinda wish there was one. Out of 10 games I’d say I went in as a solo once and a duo once. There is not much you can do in 1v3s. Or at least make sure ur party is full.
Isnt the pregame lobby a black screen showing how many people are connected?
