      Patch 4 for Assassin's Creed Unity was released today for Xbox One  and PS4, with the PC patch due out later this week. Ubisoft explained  the need for a super-sized patch on the official Assassin's Creed  website.

       

      As part of our ongoing efforts to provide the best experience for our  players, we will be releasing Patch 4 for Assassin’s Creed Unity today.  This patch is mainly focused on alleviating performance issues and  improving the overall experience. 

       

      Part of the team’s  effort to enhance frame rate for players involves replacing and updating  portions of the Paris city map where we are seeing issues. This  explains the large size of this title update (6.7 GB). However, since a  large portion of the patch replaces existing files the net increase to  the game’s overall size will be less than 6.7 GB. 

       

      Patch 4 delivers a variety fixes including: 

       

      • Performance & Stability: Frame rate drops, game crashes, lost progression 
      • Gameplay: Navigation, lock picking chests 
      • Online: Connectivity, matchmaking, companion app 

       

      This Patch is rolling out to Xbox One and PS4 players today and will be available later in the week on PC. You can find the full patch notes here

       

      Patch 4 release date: December 16th
      Platforms: PS4, Xbox One 
      PC coming later this week.
      Size: 6.7 GB

          I always find it peculiar when a PC version of the same patch is later than the console versions, considering the latter have to go through MS/Sony to be tested and stuff...

          But 6.7GB... maybe they should just have postponed the launch in this case, and learn that it's not absolutely necessary to launch the same title with different scenery in time for each year's holiday season...

            Translation: We are doing now what we should have did before we released the game for sale, but we wanted your money first and to see if enough people complained to where we would actually have to fix things we knew were wrong. We are not apologizing to anyone with a bandwidth cap because, well, we're Ubisoft.

                You know it's actually funny, living in a country where 100% of all internet connections is broadband, with more than half of it faster than 30mbps, and where 'datalimit' solely applies to mobile internet, finding out there are actually places where people have a low speed internet connection or a datalimit on their connection is quite... refreshing...

                Where I live, 16 miles from the closest city, I have 2 options: $35+/month dialup, or $50+/month 5GB/month 18mbps satellite (+$10/month for every extra 5GB). I live in the USA, in which AT&T must lay fiber lines else wait for Google or another company to lay them. It sucks.
