The Xbox Series X and S will allow you to uninstall portions of games while still being able to play other parts of the game, according to Xbox director of program management Jason Ronald. He revealed the information in the most recent episode of the Xbox Podcast, as spotted by GamesRadar.

This feature will only be available for games that support it. Still, it sounds like this will be a helpful feature that should help users stretch the ample 1TB of storage the Xbox Series X offers even further.

"Even beyond the hardware, we've actually made user interface improvements to make it easier for you to manage your storage," Ronald said on the Xbox Podcast's Friday episode. "As an example, one of the new features we're adding is actually for, if a title chooses to support it, the ability to selectively uninstall different components of the game."

As an example, Ronald noted that a player could uninstall the campaign portion of a game but continue to play the multiplayer without the burden of the space the campaign memory takes up on their console.
