Hate waiting for games to download?

The July Xbox update, which started rolling out yesterday, includes a feature called FastStart, which will let you jump into the action after downloading a fraction of a game. The update will include "FastStart", which is a feature created to address one of the biggest frustrations of modern gaming: Being forced to wait for your titles to download before you can play them. Naturally, this isn't ideal, particularly for those who play competitive titles in which getting early access to the game can give you an advantage over your late-coming peers. But while it was presented in the context of Xbox Game Pass, today's update appears to make the feature available for everyone. It does this by identifying and prioritising the files that are needed to get stuck into a game sharpish, ensuring they are downloaded first.

This feature is now enabled for English-language titles in the Xbox Game Pass catalog, and Microsoft plans to expand it to "more games in more languages over time", Hryb wrote. Users can also tinker with them in a number of ways, including adding custom names to each Group and adding individual Groups to Home. It remains to be seen whether that version will also disappear, or whether the Xbox One version will reappear after possibly being accidentally removed. "Second, we've added multi-touch support for touch-enabled devices. For example, you can control the joystick and press A at the same time on your touch laptop".

The game has been undergoing some big changes since it left the Xbox Preview Program, including the addition of Duo mode, invite a friend options, private matches, the Glider tool, skill-based matchmaking, and five new Show Director powers. Again, according to the FAQ, ready to start "is a feature that requires publisher work and may be an inconsistent experience from game to game", which the company is trying to avoid with FastStart.
