The feature lets you seamlessly switch between multiple games without exorbitant loading screens or startup times. With Quick Resume, you can play one game, pause that one to pick up your progress in a completely different game, and repeat without any hiccups. The trailer, embedded below, shows someone switching between Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Minecraft Dungeons, Skate 3, Black, and back to Jedi Fallen Order with only a few seconds of delay between each swap.
The trailer is reminiscent of the Xbox Series X Quick Resume demo that dropped in March 2020. That video showed someone swapping between State of Decay 2, Forza Motorsport 7, Ori and the Blind Forest, The Cave, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, and back to State of Decay 2 with no issues.
Microsoft detailed the Quick Resume feature earlier this month in a comparison video that showed off the load times between the Xbox Series S and the Xbox One S. Thanks to the system’s increased power and new features like Quick Resume, load times on the Series S are as low as 12 seconds for a game like Obsidian’s The Outer Worlds. The Xbox One S took 53 seconds to load the same content.
Both the Xbox Series S and Series X launch on November 10 for $300 and $500, respectively. Check out our Xbox Series S/X preorder guide to learn where to get one when preorders go live on September 22.
