Today’s Assassin’s Creed: Unity patch is supposed to weigh in at a chunky 6.7GB, but is many times that on Xbox One.
“We have received and confirmed reports that some Xbox One players who have previously applied Patch 3 are seeing a 40GB download instead of the expected 6.7GB download,” Ubisoft wrote on the Assassin’s Creed website.
“Unfortunately, an issue with the patch downloading process is replacing the entire game instead of just the parts affected by the patch. This is obviously not the expected behavior, and we apologize that many of you will have to wait longer than expected to complete this download.”
Ubisoft recommends that those with a physical copy of the game try uninstalling and reinstalling it, which should restart the patching process and only download the 6.7GB file.
Those with the digital version of the game are better off not updating the game until this problem is fixed.
Mass murder game Hatred was reinstated on Steam Greenlight by none other than Valve co-founder and managing director Gabe Newell.
In a message to Hatred developer Destructive Creations, Newell apologised for the game’s removal and wished the studio well with its development.
“Yesterday I heard that we were taking Hatred down from Greenlight,” he wrote.
Controversial mass murder title Hatred is back on Steam Greenlight less than 48 hours after it was pulled from the service by Valve.
The game can be voted up or down here.
Valve removed the game only yesterday. "Based on what we've seen on Greenlight we would not publish Hatred on Steam. As such we'll be taking it down," said the company.
The next campaign DLC for Total War: Rome II is called Wrath of Sparta and is out now.
The DLC recreates the Pelopponesian Wars and pits three Sparta, Athens, Corinth and the Boiotian League against one another.
"Will Sparta and its allies martial their formidable military might to dominate Greece? Or will stately Athens retain its stranglehold on Greek politics, and assure victory with its unsurpassed navies? The dominant state must prepare for an escalating challenge, as the Persian Empire watches matters unfold, and drills its armies in readiness for a challenger to rise," writes Sega.
Xbox Australia has announced this morning that new local Xbox Live servers have come online today.
The new servers, hosted from data centres in Australia, will bring lower pings and centralised local hosting to both Australian and New Zealand players of Forza Motorsport 5, Forza Horizon 2, Sunset Overdrive, and Halo: The Master Chief Collection, said Xbox.
This morning's announcement was specific to Australia, however Xbox has confirmed to Gameplanet that Kiwis will be automatically connected to the Australian servers:
The gear dropped in Destiny's new raid, Crota's End, will now be more powerful and drop with greater regularity.
Since the release of the first expansion, The Dark Below, many Destiny players have felt that the quality of gear dropped in the new raid - currently the most challenging content in the game - didn't adequately reflect the difficulty of obtaining it.
The hotfix brings Destiny up to 220.127.116.11. Now, "Both existing and future Raid gear obtained in Crota's End now begins at Level 30 with an upgrade path to reach Level 32," said Bungie.
The first story expansion for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is out today on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC.

“The Crew doesn’t see the trees for the forest: its arresting vistas and beautiful set pieces can’t pave over its uneven execution and its dogged insistence on grinding. The Crew is Icarus in a V8 weighed down by a boot full of microtransactions.”
