Halo: The Master Chief Collection Xbox One X Update Now Live
Highlights
  • The update is 73GB
  • It's essentially the entire collection
  • You can prioritise which game you want downloaded first

The Halo: The Master Chief Collection Xbox One X update is now available for download. It brings 4K and HDR support to Microsoft's collection of sci-fi shooters. In addition to this, Halo: The Master Chief Collection patch promises improved matchmaking, offline support for LAN, faster load times, and customisable installation. The Halo: The Master Chief Collection Xbox One X update download size is around 73GB, which is essentially the entire collection of games. Considering the state Halo: The Master Chief Collection launched in back in 2014, it's nice to see developer 343 Industries not abandon it altogether. That said, we wish the studio was a little more considerate of data caps and bandwidth limitations.

Thankfully, you can customise and prioritise which Halo game from this collection that you want to install first after an initial 2.3GB download.
