Not announced on Twitter;

BUT IT IS!

You must uninstall you “Pre-order” banner placeholder and reinstall. It will begin doe paging.

Mine isn’t downloading yet (uk)

I uninstalled the placeholder file , and started again the download ( the 46,1 Gb ) , which is still downloading … I checked via the size difference in my HDD , ( eg I had 100Gb , now , 46,1 Gb less ) when the new download started

Odd…it keeps coming up with a “!” And installation stopped

No; just uninstall the game part; then reinstall; I didn’t worry about uninstalling the other items. Just the game place holder.

Downloading right now :slight_smile:

They never stated 10.20, that’s what everyone assumed because that’s when you can pick up the console & LCE, but last week, when H5 went gold, in THAT article (posted 10.07.15) they stated “Digital purchasers will be able to download the game starting next week, follow us on twitter @Halo for more on that later”.

Most people just overlooked that, since it was at the end.

Do you need to preorder to be able to preload?

Yes.

To cancel my physical pre order and get the digital or not…
