Start your games twice as fast

What is FastStart?

With FastStart, we introduced a patented, new technology that gets you into your game in half the time.1 FastStart-enabled games use crowdsourced data to identify the parts of the game you’re most likely to need right away and downloads those parts first. You’ll be playing in full-fidelity with just a fraction of the game installed. Wait less, play more.
