Millions of gamers are eagerly anticipating the release of Halo 4 this fall, but many were probably not expecting for 343 Industries to require players have at least 8GB of free space on their Xbox systems to jump into Halo 4′s multiplayer. In addition to the memory requirements needed, it was advised that players install the entire game in order to get the best possible gameplay experience.
An official posting on the Xbox website breaks down the requirements in order for Halo fans to gain the optimal performance once the game launches. With 343 Industries taking over control for Bungie, it will be interesting to see what changes make their way into the final product. 343 has already announced a brand new mode for multiplayer, “Spartan Ops”, which brings new episodic story content on a weekly basis.
Spartan Ops seems to be a great way for fans of the story to access brand new content with friends, but for now it’s all speculation.
With the game set for release on November 6 across the globe, it at least gives those die-hard fans lacking the space to delete their old save files. There are still plenty of options for those of you who like to hoard your game data. For instance, a jump drive would be an acceptable alternative, or you could always hope for another limited edition Halo console.
Unless there’s a hologram of Cortana radiating from the top, count me out.
Does this upset you that there will be a minimum install requirement, or could you care less? Let us know in the comments below, and stay tuned for more Halo 4 coverage as information releases.
