Play Halo 5: Guardians a Week Early?

The Halo 5: Guardians Limited Collector’s Edition comes on 10-20-2015. But will you get to play the full game then? Because I’ve gotten mixed responses. I was told by Microsoft yes that I will get to play a week early and no. So does anyone have a link about this with a definite answer?

This is correct. The only benefit of it is that you will have the game already downloaded come launch day.

Thanks for the info guys!

You get it a week early so it allows you to download the full game ( 40 - 60 gbs) so for those who don’t have fast internet speeds can be able to play on release date.

The game will be locked until 12.01 am or whatever the time (time-zone) is for you.

It’s a preload thankfully, no staggered launch.

Staggered launches are never good. OP, I’m just here to confirm what everyone else said, it’s only a pre load thankfully.

For people that are getting the disk version, is there a way to download it early? Or at the very least, the updates?

No man, that’s the point of the digital version.

Troll

Wish it would be released on the 20th in Europe as well. Seems like I’ll be downloading instead of playing on the 27th.

That would be cool, but sort of unfair.
it pretty much just gives you a code to pre-load the game onto your Xbox.

What is all this …

Man this sucks

Nope, you can only preload it.

I feel for anyone who purchases the entire thing, purely under the assumption they’ll play a week early.

I opted for the disc swap. Apparently it will be delivered by Monday bur we’ll see.

Yup. That’s a huge motivation for me to have purchased digital. And halo is a game that I’m alright with never getting a trade in for. Plus ain’t nobody got time for swapping discs. The future is now!

Why do i keep constantly seeing some of my friends playing it then?
