Gears of War 4 physical copy requires 11GB day one patch to play the game

Bad news for those who are hoping to pick up a copy of Gears of War 4 and start playing it right away, but the physical copies will require an 11GB day-one patch in order to play.


However, the digital copies won’t need the 11GB update as the updated version will include in the download and will be playable right away. This update may result of developer The Coalition doing some last minute tinkering to Gears of War 4 before release, which explains the 11GB day one patch.

Gears of War 4 will require 73GB of HDD space on the PC, and the Xbox One version requires 54GB of HDD space.
