The month of November is pretty exciting for Xbox One owners since Microsoft releases Halo: The Master Chief Collection in just a week’s time. I’m not a fan of day-one patches and hence was pretty disappointed in knowing that Halo:
The Master Chief Collection will have a mandatory 20 GB patch to download on launch day. This just makes it worse for those who already have to download the digital version. An unconfirmed news on the web though dictates that 343 Industries might be releasing the mandatory 20 GB patch tomorrow.
If true then those who have pre-ordered the game will be able to download the patch and pre-load the entire game for release day. According to a post on NeoGAF, reviewers will be able to start streaming multiplayer tomorrow from 10:00 am PST.
Since the patch is mandatory in order to play multiplayer, 343 Industries will most probably be making the patch live for everyone. This is still only speculation but with just a day away, we’ll know if it’s true or not.
It would also make sense that the developer is releasing the patch just a week from the game’s release.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection will release for Xbox One on November 11. It includes Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3 and Halo 4, with the older titles overhauled to match up to current standards.
In addition, Halo 2 Anniversary includes six all-new maps built from the ground up for Xbox One.
