7 Ways That 5G Will Change Gaming

You may be wondering what the big deal is about 5G. How much different could it possibly be from the internet we have now and how will it change gaming? The answer will surprise you.

Thanks to companies like Plume, expect the internet to be on an entirely new level. Your service provider will be able to allocate your internet stream in an intelligent way to provide a far more powerful gaming platform.

  1. 5G Will Revolutionize the Internet

The new 5G is more than ten times faster than 4G, but speed isn’t its only benefit. It can also handle way more devices. Even if every device in your home is downloading a page using 5G, your internet won’t slow down. The difference between 4G and 5G is like comparing a dirt road to a ten-lane highway. There’s just no comparison. When 5G arrives in every home, it will transform gaming in radical ways, including including the following:

  1. You’ll Be Able To Play Complex Games on Mobile Devices

Serious gaming is done on a computer or console. Both take up disk space and are slow to load. Playing an intricate game is close to impossible on a mobile device such as a phone or tablet. Our current 4G just isn’t fast enough. With 5G and increased bandwidth, you’ll be able to play any game you want on your phone without lag time or frustration.

  1. Online Gaming Will Be Possible

With 4G, it’s frustrating to play online gaming because of all the lags. With the advent of 5G, however, such lags will be a thing of the past. You’ll be able to make friends with fellow gamers around the world and play with them without worrying about losing your internet connection. Booting up that game and playing it will be much faster as well.

Multiplayer games will be far more common with 5G. Right now, people play multiplayer games on the same computer often using multiple controllers. Or people take turns with different people getting to be in the hotseat. Multiplayer games online mean everyone can play.

  1. Cloud Gaming Will Be the Norm

It’s currently not possible to play games on the cloud because of connectivity issues. 5G will change everything, meaning cloud gaming take the place of console gaming. Consoles cost hundreds of dollars. Those who, in the past, had limited access to games because of the prohibitive cost of consoles, will now be able to play all the games as soon as they come out. Companies such as Microsoft are already gearing up to produce ambitious cloud-based games delivering complicated realities that mesh seamlessly.

  1. Social Gaming Will Increase

Social gaming, where you play an online game through social media or a social network, has always been limited because of connectivity issues. Thanks to online streaming and 5G, more people will be able to engage in social gaming.

  1. You’ll Be Able To Download and Upload Games Faster

With 4G, a standard movie takes several minutes to download. With 5G it can be downloaded in seconds. If movies can be downloaded that fast with 5G, imagine how quickly you can down the latest version of your favorite game. Plus, no more waiting while you segue between levels.

  1. Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality Will Be Consistent

You’ll be able to slip into other worlds without lags and truly experience your gaming in a virtual way. You won’t just watch characters on a screen. They’ll be standing right in your living room, acting out dramas and working under your direction. With virtual reality, you’ll be able to see and feel characters as if they were real people standing in front of you. You’ll be able to hold a virtual baby or shoot a virtual arrow, all from the comfort of your living room.

If you think gaming is fun now, wait until 5G arrives. You’ll be experiencing it in an entirely new way that will make the games of the past look like cardboard cutouts.
