sounds like pre-patching.

Pre-patching puts files that are close to the final release version onto your hard drive, so that when the final version is released, it can copy them from your HD when it patches instead of having to download them in the rush to update to the new release.

in theory - prepatching helps bandwidth and gets you into game faster after a big update like this.
