Assassin’s Creed Unity’s ‘Refurbished Paris’ Explained, Patch 4 Is 6.7 GB

Yesterday, Ubisoft announced that the latest patch for Assassin’s Creed Unity was slightly delayed. Patch 4 is rolling out now, and the publisher has shared more information about what it has done to “refurbish” the Paris map.

“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,” the company writes. “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.”

As a result of these changes, Patch 4 improves frame rate, reduces crashes, and prevents lost progression. Online performance also sees a boost with connectivity and matchmaking.

The update is hitting Xbox One and PlayStation 4 today. PC users will see it later this week. For the entire patch notes, check out yesterday’s coverage.

We reached out to Ubisoft to get more information about the work done on Unity's map. The publisher tells us that there should be no perceptible changes to the game other than improved frame rate and there have been no downgrades of any sort.
