343 Industries studio head Josh Holmes revealed on Twitter that the game’s first patch will weigh in at 9GB. Holmes says the patch is a multiplayer update that includes multiplayer maps. If you want to play online, it will be required you have it installed before you click play.

The inclusion of multiplayer maps certainly helps explain the fairly large size of the update. The game boasts one of the larger install sizes we’ve seen to date on the Xbox One as well at 60GB.

Similar to clan systems in other multiplayer shooters, Spartan Companies allow you to create a group of up to 100 members, with 343 providing forums and a website for company members to stay in touch.
