Or at least make it possible to disable it in options or something.
No load is put on the system or the internet-connection during the scene.
I can only conclude that it is 100% unnecessary
Used for testing:
PC (Ryzen 9 3900x - 3060 TI - PCIe 4.0 SSD)
Xbox Series S
Xbox One S
Xbox One S AD
is this not masking a loading screen?
Nope … only the screen which is shown after the scene is used to sync connection with squad-members and load assets.
Removing it would work for me.
If they gave an option to skip it and have all three members agree (like left for dead voting mechanic) That would be lovely <3
Hmmm you on PC or Xbox ?
I wonder if it masks loading for the XBone, alot of that masking is unneccesary for PC/New Xbox.
(Hello unskippable intros, argh)
Even if it was masked loading, i think I would much rather see a longer loading screen than that scene everytime.
It does not. The loading-screen after the snatcher-scene is about 8-10 seconds longer on the Xbox One (S/AD) than on the Xbox Series S and the PC .
You can avoid seeing it by sitting in the weapon customization page while the wave loads
I don’t remember the last time I watched the Snatcher cutscene.
Quick resume on a series x is great
No longer have to sit through that ice fracture intro
When i enter the weapon customization page after starting the countdown i’m returned to the lobby.
Either way - it should be a optional feature. Not a thing that should be ‘glitched’ to be avoided.
Hey someone worked hard on animating so we must watch it
I don’t actually mind it. With the Series X, the loading is so short anyway. It’s only lengthened if you are paired up with people with, I say the least offensive way possible, inferior hardware.
Don’t get me wrong, I sometimes missed those little breaks in the Safe Room before the next section loaded. Time to check my phone, have a drink. Now, when solo or with similar consoles/good PCs, it’s seconds.
You barely stop moving and the woman’s voice is all:
”WARNING! WARNING! CONTAMINATION DETECTED!! GET THE F&%K OUT!’”.
Jesus, woman! Calm it!
You can also look at the Tour of Duty while the cutscene plays.
