Video showing the improved load times for Bloodborne after update 1.03.
I didn't mind the load times (I used them to simmer down a little, which in turn kept my DualShock 4 in one piece!), but for those who are impatient or hate loading screens, it sounds like your ship has arrived. I'm glad From Software were able to accomplish this in relatively short order with no impact on the games performance.
I'm right there with you, the load times weren't an issue for me, but I'm glad it's been improved anyways. I'm more so happy that they cleaned up that nasty bug where the bosses AI would dumb down considerably if the game was left on for long periods of time.
anybody do a demonstration on loading post patch + having a solid state drive?
@NewMonday I have a Hybrid SSD, so I'll be happy to try it out when I get home later on. I'm not sure what kind of HDD Ben has in his PS4, but I will update this post and the article with that info and as well as my results with a Hybrid SSD.
Is it just me or does the framerate look rougher on the post-patch once it reloads than on the pre-patch? Watch it closely.
@TheDude79 yes pleas thanks, at least to confirm if the loadtime cut stack
glad to see they have shortened the load times and put info on them so that when you do wait you at least have something to read while doing so.
Wow the loads were cut in half big time
NOW that is a great comparison of the load times. Well done to the site and good news for Bloodborne players.
Thank you for the kind words, I just wish we had more pre-patch footage in different locations, but I think it's pretty obvious From Software came through in the clutch with this one!
Good job, though it's still slow for someone used to SSD. Time to get back to the game and finish it.
The load times were long but they weren't that bad (for me.) That's not to say I approved of such long load times, but I hated the eye sore "Bloodborne", it truly burned into my eyes. Had the item descriptions been there from the start, it would've been better. Now with load times shorter and descriptions, loading almost vanishes.
love this game. its addicting as hell and challenging.
You know a game is good when the one bad thing about it, that is also consistently brought up, is the load times. It's turned into a primetime news story around here.
Idk if I'm tripping but the game does not look as good to me as it did when it first lunch but idk I think I'm tripping tho lol. Also as a side note who all here good at dark souls 2 on ps4 because if hit a snag lol
I freaking love this game, but for me the load times were pretty bad. I am very happy for the adjustment!!!
