Confirmed – Assassin’s Creed Unity patch is 40GB on Xbox One

Assassin’s Creed Unity has been a massive disappointment on many fronts. Not only are the story and characters dull, the game is riddled with horrendous bugs, a frustratingly terrible framrate and random hard crashes. Ubisoft has been poking and prodding to see what will fix things, resulting in a massive patch that finally went live yesterday.

According to Ubisoft, this should fix the majority of remaining issues lingering in the game, focusing especially on performance woes. In fact, they’ve had to go back and re-design Paris (sort of) to get things running smoothly again. In a nutshell, here’s what’s been patched up.

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

There is, of course, a lot more to it than that, so feel free to scrounge through this rather lengthy change log that Ubisoft posted as well.

The patch is quite massive too, weighing in at 6.7GB on the PS4. On the Xbox One though, it’s another sad story entirely. Something went wrong with the patch itself, prompting players to download a 40GB update. Sadly, that’s an accurate figure, after Ubisoft confirmed that the patch mistakenly replaces files it already has. If you’re lucky enough to have the disc version, you can uninstall and re-install the game to get the correct, smaller patch size. If you bought the game digitally, you’re out of luck for now.

It’s infuriating that Ubisoft has somehow managed to mess up patch implementation now as well. I know for sure that I’ll never download a 40GB patch for Unity, so here’s to hoping that the workaround is actually feasible. Have you already given up on this year’s new generation Assassin’s Creed?

            Blu-Ray is the easy way out for optimization. I wonder how much code is being duplicated when compared to the hard work they had to put in on the DVD9.

            I remember MGS4 had 25gigs just for the AUDIO while XBOX had 14gigs for GTAV.

        PATCH STATION 4

        Why does SONY and MICROSOFT allow this practice on their machines?

        The reason why SONY does not want us to fill our HDs up with MP4 and VLC video is because there is space for potential purchases from the PS STORE.

        Not any more, the HD is being filled up with uncompressed broken videogames that require patches bigger than 4 7th gen games.

          Why wouldn’t they? They’ve already sold their hardware. Ubi had to pay nice license fees to release on their platforms & probably has to pay for distributing patches. People also don’t blame them for it, they blame Ubi.

    6.7 gig patch. There is something wrong with the gaming industry. 6.7 gig patch, to me, says that the game was nowhere near finished when it was released. 6.7 gig patch is like the size of a video game.

          And its things like this that kills an industry. They bank on release sales, and the other subsequent (lower) sales are just a bonus. Now, if most people wait for the proper version, their loss of income will be astronomical over a longer period. Good. Hard lessons learnt are those less likely to be forgotten.

            they only run better at low end.
            building a pc on a budget is AMD all the way.
            but after that, their power consuption : processing power ratio is too skewed.
            AMDs current CPUs are going through the same phase as the AMD GPUs were last year “MOAR POWAR”
            also, would not want to be in the same room as an AMD octacore without water cooling this summer.

            my last two PCs were AMD, i know how hot they get.

            when i took my previous pc in to get fixed, the guys were telling me they were going to keep my pc under observation because it was running too hot and they had no idea why, their boss and i laughed at them and told them it was normal for AMD.

    I think SONY and Microsoft are allowing this practice so that we fill our 500gig HDs (100gigs for OS) as soon as possible so we can go out and buy the new 1TB HD that they probably have in the works.

            Very sad. No, you know what, it’s not sad. It’s disgusting.

            No other industry IN THE WORLD is allowed to release shoddy products like this. Any other manufacture in any other industry is forced to do a recall or a refund.

            The gaming industry is the only one in the world where it’s deemed ok to buy a half finished product “Because they can patch it right after”.

            It’s an abhorable practice and I can’t believe people are not making more of an issue of this. If I buy a game that is THAT bad. I would tear the support center apart.

            Buying a car in an industry like the gaming industry:
            Buy new car.
            Bring back because seatbelts don’t work
            Left in workshop for a week because it turns out that there’s no transmission in it either.
            Finally get your car, but now you have to go back because they didn’t put the seats back in after they fixed the seatbelts.

    My lessons learned this year:

    1. As a general rule, do not buy for at least six months to a year, IGNORE Early Access.

    2. As easy as it is to do and as excusable as it may seem to be, don’t pirate if you’re able to get the game legit. This is a hobby, not life or death.

    3. Some developers just want to make money, others wanna make fun things to play. I’d advise giving your money to the latter.

    Best wishes to all for the end of the year, happy gaming!

    It is pretty sad that console games are going into the same poor quality direction PC games used to be. PC games were always treated like this. Release it as a shit port or broken and then patch it later. Console gamers used to point and laugh at us.

    I won’t go as far as saying I wish this would wipe Ubisoft out. I don’t want to be that crass.

    BUT…

    I sincerely hope that the management of the company takes a long hard look at their development and development times and starts to rethink its strategies. They have some great games but to release a patch that fixes a patch…well that just sounds crazy.

    It all points to the fact that this game should never have been released and was rushed to market; and that management KNEW this. They must have known the game was broken (forget whether its good or not).

    Dull characters? Wut. I mean it wasn’t fantastic but for an AC game it was pretty good, and Arno is my favorite Assassin so far simply because he had a simple goal and he achieved it, no bullshit ending was pulled upon us. The game has some bad bugs yeah, but the update literally fixes 99% of them. You bought the game, stop blaming Ubisoft. The ENTIRE industry is about money and they had a deadline GIVEN TO THEM BY BOTH MICROSOFT AND SONY. They already delayed the game as much as they could and it’s childish for any of you to get so upset asshurt over a fucking video game. I get it, it’s upsetting, even I was upset, but with this new console community I want to tear my own eyeballs out because you all act like a bunch of four year olds who got the action figure they didn’t want for christmas.

    The patch is NOT 40gb – that is the full game and Ubisoft has said that there is an issue with those who do have Xbox One. The patch itself is 6.7 gb but for some reason, its redownloading the whole, entire game again. Thankfully, I didnt install this until after Christmas, after the 22nd – that was when the story broke in regards to the issue with the patch downloading
