No, you can't play Halo Infinite's campaign now, even if you have the disc
 

 
Here's a PSA for anyone rushing to stick their Halo Infinite disc in their Xbox: no, the game's campaign is currently not available to play.

Those with a physical edition of Halo Infinite report that the disc will install ~15GB worth of game files - but then request players go online to download the rest.

And, as we reported earlier, the campaign itself does not go live until 6pm UK time tonight - without the ability to pre-load.

Disc-based games often ask for a title update before they can be played, but fans have flagged up Halo Infinite in particular as it seems clear the disc's 15GB is not the full game.

What is actually on the Halo Infinite disc? We've asked Microsoft for more.

Halo Infinite's campaign actually weighs in at around 25GB, with its multiplayer portion around another 4GB - though these values vary depending which pieces of Halo Infinite you may have already, and what you're now looking to install.

There's currently no way of installing the campaign without multiplayer - which tallies with how the game's campaign is listed as £49.99 DLC on Steam.

And since the game treats the campaign as DLC, the idea of having a disc for the game at all is rather muddled. How do you sell a physical copy of a free-to-play game when what you're really paying for is more of an add-on? With great difficulty.

They made it that way so you would have to go online and see their plethora of MT. I know y’all want that $7 helmet shader

I blame those $1 gamepass subs. They have to recoup costs and then make a profit

God bless

Yup I was ready to set my timezone to New Zealand but they're trying to cut down on spoilers - especially after the stuff that leaked in the original MP beta leaked lol

Make sure you load up 3 years of XBOX live first so that converts over as well.

Yea, I’m not a fan of this.

And to be fair, this is an issue with Gran Turismo Sport and likely to be one for GT7, so this isn’t just a Microsoft thing.

Imo this is trash tho. I miss being able to pop a game in and be able to play it. This also makes it not even worth owning a physical copy.

It is trash, you shouldnt be forced to connect to the internet to play a single player game. They do that sh*t now so they dont have to fix their game before releasing it, they would rather release it half a*sed and fix it later. They cant do that if you cant put out an update.

Man I remember buying the PS4 between houses and was heated because I needed to download a update to watch a movie, and didnt have internet yet.
