Some Xbox One users hoping to install a patch for Assassin’s Creed Unity could be waiting a long time.
Yesterday Ubisoft released the fourth patch to Assassin’s Creed Unity to fix several of the remaining problems in the game, which launched a month ago, but the patch is unexpectedly large for one system. The 6.7 GB patch appears as 40 GB for Xbox One.
Ubisoft confirmed this is the case, and it is working with Microsoft on a solution to reduce the size. After all, 40 GB takes a long time to download. Ubisoft stated this problem only seems to appear for Xbox One players who have applied the third patch to Unity.
“This is obviously not the expected behavior, and we apologize that many of you will have to wait longer than expected to complete this download,” Ubisoft stated. “This issue isn’t causing any other problems and once the download is completed players will have the most-up-to-date and fully patched version of Assassin’s Creed Unity.”
Ubisoft does not have a timeline for when the problem will be fixed, but it does have a workaround for people with the disc version of the game; if you uninstall the game and reinstall it, the patch will be the right download size.
This problem does not seem to affect anyone on PS4.
The fourth patch fixes performance and stability issues, such as frame rate drops, crashing and lost progression, as well as the navigating and lock picking chests. The patch will also address online problems with connectivity, matchmaking, and the companion app. The patch will be available later in the week on PC. The full patch notes are available to read in the Ubisoft forums.
