Before you scream at the screen, let it be known that you can play through the campaign while this downloads in the background. Surely you’re going to want to do that first anyway, to avoid having the the story spoiled by some loudmouth in the lobbies. Also, modern games have larger file sizes so 9gb isn’t really that much bigger than what other titles have included as day one updates. The base game will of course be 60gb, with 9gb on top of that. A big game overall.
@crazyherb9 The MP update (includes map content) is 9GB.

Yesterday, 343 Industries also detailed the new clan mode for Halo 5, which you can read up on here, as well as create your own Spartan Company, design its emblem, invite friends in, and get yourself even more hyped. You can also join the 4-One clan if you wish!
Offering a full 4 player co-op campaign, the regular epic Halo multiplayer lobby, Warzone and Forge, Halo 5 is going to be a stellar game for Xbox fans this holiday. Jump into Halo 5: Guardians on October 27th.
