Downloading Day 1 Patch/Update (PS4)

Recommended Posts

peanutbutterjam

Hi lovely people,

 

Do you think it'll be possible to download the day 1 patch/update online onto a USB disc as an alternative to directly downloading through the console?

 

I have a terribly slow internet connection and assuming the patch is 3GB+ it'd be quicker to go elsewhere and download it onto the USB.

 

Or - would it be possible to jump straight into story mode while it downloads in the back?

 

Thanks a mil

So, is the patch only for online? Not required to play story mode?

Is not required. The day one patch is basically for fixing some minor bugs that you can experience while playing or that can make you fail a mission unexplainably which in the most dramatic case and is very rare to see that in R*

Updates are not required to play a game offline, or in this case single player. Updates must be installed if you want Online functionality, however.

Yup. Just explaining what is the patch for. You can obviously go ahead and play SP while downloading for sufe but this kind of updates it is recommendable to install it asap

Dunno about Xbox but you can pre-load day 1 patches on PSN (but not install).

 

The PSN pre-load is version 1.02 though, which is up to date as of this moment. I imagine the Xbox One pre-load is the same.

Yeah I thought I remember that if you buy a game digitally then the day one patch was included as part of the download when you download the full game. At least in most cases

Nice to know @Niko B3llic. Is the first time I buy a game this way since I experience the disc eject trouble a lot while playing GTA V. 

 

Should I expect no install time unlike physical copy?

Yeah if it's digital and fully downloaded that's it. You just boot it up and start playing! The physical copies need an install cause only so much of the data can fit on the disc.
