After saying it was on hold yesterday due to more work being required, Ubisoft released Patch 4 for Assassin’s Creed Unity on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One today, with a PC release scheduled for later this week.

What you’ll notice right away about this patch is that it sits at around 6.7GB in size. According to Ubisoft, “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 (6.7GB). However, since a large portion of the patch replaces existing files the net increase to the game’s overall size will be less than 6.7GB.”
