  • @TimmyJim - I think the OP means any game - i.e. no matter which game it is, it forces you to download an update. On the 360 you could cancel the update and play offline. I presume the OP wants to know if/how to do this on Xbox One games.

You'll have to disconnect your Xbox One from the internet. There are 2 ways to do it.

  • Physically unplug the LAN cable and disconnect from your WiFi network.
  • "Go offline". Go to the "Network settings" and select "Go offline".
