Whilst we are currently reviewing Halo: The Master Chief Collection, and the majority of our readers have it sat waiting for the November 11th digital edition switch-on, or your pre-order to arrive. Good news just in! A huge 5GB of data has been trimmed from the day one Multiplayer update from the original 20GB quota previously announced.
Not only does this mean 5GB worth of download waiting time has been cut, but it doesn’t cut anything from the game or the experience. The update is a requirement of online gameplay to enable the title to ship on 1 disc. If you have an internet connection and space left on your HDD, then this shouldn’t really be an issue.
apparently @Danayoub deleted the five gigs of candid Hamish Beamish selfies I hid in the update.
