Dauntless developers – Boost mode is coming

The developers behind the massively multiplayers online game Dauntless faced criticism regarding the game’s loading times on Switch.

Taking to Reddit one of the developers noted that the team plans to utilise the boost mode function to get the load times reduced. The Dauntless team member said “Great news, it’s coming” when asked.

Boost Mode

Basically, “boost mode” refers to speeding up the Nintendo Switch’s loading times and minimizing lag for a better gaming experience. The name is semi-inaccurate but it’s what the internet has chosen to call this process.

To understand how “boost mode” is possible, we’ll have to go into the Switch’s specs as well as its history. 

When the Switch was released, many people were surprised that Nintendo decided to give the hybrid console a Tegra X1 mobile processor. This meant it would have significantly slower processing times than the Xbox and Playstation consoles currently on the market.

Granted, the Switch has done very well for itself, but speed is definitely an area where the Switch doesn’t measure up to current video gaming trends and technology.
