News Titanfall 2 Has Day One Patch, But It's Incredibly Small

    Like other games, Titanfall 2 will have a day one patch, Respawn Entertainment CEO Vince Zampella has confirmed. But you probably don't need to worry about having to delete any games to make room.

    He confirmed on Twitter (via Eurogamer) that Titanfall 2's day one patch is quite small. Zampella jokingly wrote, "Clear some space on your [hard drive], the Titanfall 2 day one patch is... 88 MB." He added, "The Titanfall 2 patch is super tiny, I was being goofy..." Zampella didn't say what's included in the update.

    By comparison, last year's Halo 5: Guardians had a 9 GB day one update, while this month's Gears of War 4 had an 11 GB day one update, though that was only for people who bought a physical copy. When a game "goes gold," it heads to the manufacturing plant for mass production on discs. This can sometimes happen weeks before launch, so a development team may continue to work on the game in that time and put out a day one update containing some of what it's been working on.

    Not every game handles this the same way. For Square Enix's Final Fantasy XV, one of the most substantial reasons for its latest delay was so the developer could avoid a major day-one patch. Not everyone's console is connected to the internet, game director Hajime Tabata said.


    Titanfall 2 comes out this Friday, October 28. GameSpot's review scored the game a 9/10.

    "Titanfall 2 demonstrates a vitality that its predecessor couldn't. Whereas the first Titanfall kept up its breakneck pace throughout the entirety of every match, Titanfall 2 understands that sometimes, dialing things back for a few moments can make the long run much more enjoyable," reviewer Mike Mahardy said. "In many ways, Titanfall 2 feels like the game Respawn should have made in 2013. It's a fantastic sequel. It's a fluid shooter. It's a spectacular game."
