READY AND WAITING: Ubisoft seems to have got everything wrapped up ahead of release

However, we can all find comfort in the fact that Ubisoft has completed the game and finalised the day one patch way ahead of schedule.


File Size

The new patch is set to be 2.9GB on PS4 - we expect it to be a similar size on the Xbox One and PC also.

With the game already at approximately 50GB (according to this Microsoft listing), any updates will only increase that!
