Assassin’s Creed Unity Patch 4 Requiring Full 40 GB Game Re-Download On Xbox One

Ubisoft has confirmed a problem with the latest Assassin’s Creed Unity patch. Xbox One players that installed Patch 3 are being forced to re-download the full 40 GB game.

The update, which rolled out on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 yesterday was already a hefty 6.7 GB. “Unfortunately, an issue with the patch downloading process is replacing the entire game instead of just the parts affected by the patch,” Ubisoft says. “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.”

The publisher says it is working with Microsoft on a fix for the problem. “But as of now we have no ETA on when this will be resolved,” the company says.
