Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag on PS4 Gets 2.3GB Patch 1.04, Includes a Lot of Fixes and More

February 4, 2014Written by Jason Dunning


Things got a little confusing today when it comes to the recent patch 1.04 for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag on PS4, which rings in at 2308MB.

When you download patch 1.04, you can see the changes listed in the header image (via Wario64), which we’ve also placed below for easy reading:

  • Fixed rare crashes and freezes
  • Change fight balance to increase double attacks
  • Fixed Abstergo challenges count to show 100 percent when completed
  • Add tutorial video streaming support
  • Add support for Resources Pack consumable
  • Fixed news display not always showing correct news
  • Fixed loyalty rewards skins not always being awarded
  • Fixed connection with over 100 friends

It gets confusing over on the Ubisoft forums, where Community Developer Ubi-Valentin posted a very long list of changes that would be brought in Title Update 4 on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One, but said the update would be delayed until February 11th yesterday, then changed it back to today just a few hours ago.

So, along with the above notes that seem specific to PS4, the multiplayer Title Update 4 on all consoles (except Wii U) includes the following:
