Xbox One: How to play downloadable games offline
One simple trick...just kidding. You probably already have this set up.
The Xbox One may not let you install updates via USB on your own, but you can definitely play games you've downloaded to the system whether or not you're online.
You might run into the following message while trying to play a downloaded game or DLC even if you're online:
"Do you own this game or app? If you have a game disc, insert it now. If there's no disc, make sure you're signed in to Xbox Live. If you don't have the rights for playing it, you'll need to buy it at the Xbox Store."
Obviously, there's no disc you can insert, but there is an easy fix: set up your system as My Home Xbox. The option is found under the Settings menu. There's a button in the bottom left corner that will let you "Make this my home Xbox." Enabling this option will allow all profiles on the console to access the content as well, whether or not that specific profile bought it. Of course, you can only have one "Home Xbox" configured to your account at a time.
The Xbox One launches tonight, and if you're not in line waiting to buy your own (or even if you are), you can watch GameSpot's 24-hour live stream of the game's launch right here.
