Players who have been playing Titanfall on Xbox One ahead of its official launch have probably received a day-1 update by now.
Sizing a massive 840 MB, the day-1 update increases the install size of the game to 16.3 GB. As for the digital version of the game, it’s believed to include the update and size around 16.39 GB.
Previously, while speaking to GameSpot, CEO of Respawn Entertainment, Vince Zampella stated that they were working on a day-1 patch.
I mean the game’s obviously not done yet. (Bluepoint Games is) doing a port of our game (Xbox 360 version). We just started our day on patch, so they now have to take that and integrate it into their game. So, they’re naturally lagging behind us. The goal is to get it as close as possible. Obviously it won’t be exact. It’s on a less powerful system.
Although the patch has gone live today, there are no official patch notes to be found. Furthermore, if you recently bought the game for Xbox One, note that you’ll also have to download a 20 GB mandatory install before you could play the game.
In other Titanfall news, Vince Zampella has confirmed that people who have managed to nab a physical copy of Titanfall (Xbox One version) can play it early Without Worrying About a Ban-Hammer from Microsoft or Repsawn Entertainment. He did, however, forewarn about some server and other minor issues.
About playing early; we won’t stop or ban legit copies, it is prelaunch. So there may be interruptions in service as we prep servers.
Titanfall officially launches tomorrow (March 11, 2014) in North America and on March 14 in UK for Xbox One and PC.
