Halo 4 Requires 8GB of Hard Drive Space for Multiplayer

According to GameSpot, those looking forward to play Halo 4’s multiplayer will have to sacrifice 8GB of their hard drive or flash drives. In addition, the Xbox website states that for an optimal experience, players should install the entire game (though the space required for that hasn’t been confirmed yet.) With this in mind, Microsoft is selling an 8GB and 16GB flash drives, as well as a 320GB hard drive.

Unfortunately for those who still have a launch version of the Xbox 360, 20GB will probably not be enough to install the game. Additionally, those who bought the 4GB version of the console will undoubtedly have to upgrade their hard drives or seriously consider getting one of the aforementioned flash drives.

As detailed by 343 Industries, Halo 4’s multiplayer will be divided into two main components: War Games and Spartan Ops. While the former represents a compilation of modes seen in previous titles, the latter will feature a new game experience that will encourage players to fulfill specific objectives on a weekly basis. Although Halo 4 represents the eight installment in the Halo franchise, the title is the first part of a new trilogy called “Reclaimer.” The game is coming out on November 6, 2012 for the Xbox 360.
