Halo 5's first patch is available for download now, five days prior to release.

It almost feels like we’re five days away from Christmas instead of just five days away from the Halo 5: The Guardians release, and Halo fans old and new are chomping at the bit to be able to hop into the next installment of the legendary FPS series.

You can get just a little closer to Halo nirvana right now by downloading the first Halo 5 patch from Xbox Live. The patch is slowly rolling out across all regions, and if you’re one of the lucky ones, it should be available on your Xbox One right now.

If the download doesn’t start when you turn on or wake up your console, try giving it a hard reset. The download should start once you turn on your Xbox One, provided it’s been rolled out in your region. If it hasn’t rolled out in your region, the patch should be available over the next few days.

We’re a mere five days away from the Halo 5 launch and the community could not be more hyped. Get your patch downloaded, check out the advanced tactics video put out by 343 Industries, make sure you’re off work October 27th, and get ready for a brand spankin’ new Halo.
