Xbox One and Windows 10 Exclusive ReCore is coming out this Tuesday but a new video shows that the game has a serious problem that may turn some people away. This video here taken from the Xbox One version of ReCore shows a player dying in the game and the time the game takes to load back which is being called “Sandwich Time” by people. It’s not hard to see why if you watch the video.

A two minute long load is unreal and we certain don’t see most games with this problem. Bloodborne when it came out had some long load times after death that were later patched but even those were nothing compared to this. Bloodborne had load times under a minute. The load times in ReCore are even worse than in Sonic 06 which is pretty bad. It should also be noted that the game has a Day 1 patch weighing in at around 6GB and the video above was taken with that patch installed so if you were hoping that would fix it you’d be wrong.
It’s also been stated that some of the load times in other parts of the game aren’t as long but that doesn’t make it ok for any part of the game to take two minutes to load. This is a serious problem for sure and one that will have to be fixed post launch since the Day 1 patch doesn’t fix the issue.
Will you be picking up ReCore this upcoming week or have these unacceptable load times swayed your opinion? Let us know in the comments.
