Previously, the team from Insomniac Games discussed the effect of working with a new generation of consoles. The devs are trying to build worlds that feel real with more objects, things to explore, enemies, effects, etc. This is something that couldn’t have been done on previous generations. The frequent use of dimensional rifts would not have been possible without the solid-state drive of the PS5.
“The SSD is screamingly fast. It allows us to build worlds and project players from one place to another in near-instantaneous speeds”, – said Insomniac Creative Director Marcus Smith.
