Assassin's Creed Unity's big patch is rolling out now on consoles

Ubisoft released the fourth major patch for Assassin's Creed Unity today, a little later than originally expected, for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game. The 6.7 GB update, Ubisoft says, is "mainly focused on alleviating performance issues and improving the overall experience."

Assassin's Creed Unity Patch 4 is designed to fix some performance problems, like frame rate drops, game crashes and lost progression, as well as some gameplay nits and online connectivity issues with matchmaking and the game's companion app. A full list of fixes in the update is available in Ubisoft's patch notes.

The fairly robust size of the patch is in part due to Ubisoft's rebuilding of Assassin's Creed Unity's version of Paris. The developer has replaced and updated portions of city map to boost the game's troublesome frame rate.

Patch 4 is rolling out on consoles now and will be available for the Windows PC version later this week. Ubisoft warned of a delay for the game update yesterday, when it originally planned to release the patch.
