Assassin’s Creed Unity Left With 39GB Patch?!?

/ 3 years ago

Console users woke up to a frightening update for Assassin’s Creed: Unity, clocking in a staggering 39GB, which is what I can only summarize as the digital equivalent of a product recall. This isn’t a patch, this is a complete replacement of the game install, it’s a HUGE download, especially when you think that the Blu-Ray discs these games ship on have a maximum capacity of 50GB.

On a good quality 10mbps connection, you’re still looking at almost 9 hours of download time at full speed; which is outrageous. Not so bad if you’re on fiber broadband, but I myself only manage a steady 6.5mbps download rate, leaving me with half a day of patching a game! PC users are still to get the update, but it doesn’t look promising.

    If you actually read the blog post it’s a bug with the patch effecting only Xbox One owners which is causing the system to redownload the game.

    Here is the source, I would recommend updating your article to be factually correct.

    They’ve really made a right mess of things has Ubisoft. If that’s the size of a console patch I shudder to think what awaits the PC version. It’s an unrealistic download for the many suck… err, gamers who pre-ordered the game. If they pre-ordered a hard copy version of the game can’t they take it back to the retail store where they bought it and exchange it for a new copy? That’s assuming Ubi will even bother to press new disks featuring the fixes? But let this be a lesson to the pre-ordering saps, never, ever do that again or screwups like this will just continue and get even worse.
