343i Shows off Upcoming Halo MCC Custom Installation Feature


343 Industries is currently hard at work on the massive Halo MCC update, and the developer has now shared a glimpse of the collection’s upcoming custom installation feature.

Earlier this month we already shared how 343i is making progress on the game’s Intelligent Delivery System, which allows for incremental download of specific game content instead of downloading the full Halo MCC game package. “Players can download an initial install, and then select other games, languages, and content areas they want to download from there”, 343 Industries’ Brian, ‘Ske7ch’, Jarrard wrote. “With regards to language specifically, this will allow players to select languages in MCC independent of their console language, location settings, or the SKU they originally purchased.”

Halo: The Master Chief Collection May be Getting Microtransactions as an “Additive Feature”

Ske7ch has now taken to Twitter to share a screenshot of the collection’s upcoming intelligent delivery system, which is still being actively worked on.

As can be seen in the screenshot, players will have the option to prioritize on what to download first, and the menu will show changes in download size. Once downloaded, players will always have the option to remove or install additional components of the game.

A release date for the Halo MCC update hasn’t been revealed, but Microsoft has promised that the game’s Xbox One X patch will be released “soon”.

We will keep you updated.
