I should have written it down, but I think the update was 900mb+ in size.

As far as noticing anything, well my wife got the game as a Christmas present, so we had only started playing it yesterday. When I went to install it, it asked to install the update along with it.

The game itself seems to be running well and looks good, so if there is anything in particular you would like me to check in game, I'd be happy to. Was there an issue with glitches or something before the patch?

I think the update was to make it 1080p. Or was that just the PS4 version?

Couldn't you technically not download the updates by just not connecting to the internet? It should let you play the games as they are at least.


also, do you not run your X1 in standby? If you do, its strange that those updates did not already get downloaded. I have Ryse and I was never prompted to do an update, I had assumed it had pulled it down one night.

 

I don't have my Xbox in standby mode because my Powerbrick hums really loudly, given that my powerbrick sits about 1-2 feet away from my head when laying in bed it's difficult to sleep with it on.

That's just for the PS4 version, Sony had to pay them to do it, otherwise they were content to release both versions in 1600x900

Bit misleading to post unconfirmed remarks like that, both consoles got AA update, PS4 got 1080p as well. If you do have factual confirmation that I've missed to say Sony paid for an update Ubisoft otherwise wouldn't have done, go ahead and post it. I would like to read it as I find the premise of such a deal rather pointless.

 

Here's what Ubisoft said

But why ship at 900p in the first place? To meet an essential goal: deliver a visually brilliant game at a steady 30 frames per second (the industry gold standard for open-world games). Finishing the game at 900p gave the development team the extra room in terms of the GPU and CPU usage to ensure the framerate never dips below 30 frames per second. The team then used the time between the ship date and the release to focus on a title update that could deliver native 1080p resolution on the PS4.

 

“The most important part of this title update is not necessarily 1080p native resolution,” Trottier smiles. “It’s the fact that even when we were done with the project, even when we were finished with the certification and everything else, even when most of the engineers had started to work on other projects – like we always do at Ubisoft – some of my engineers continued to work on Black Flag and they even developed a brand-new anti-aliasing technique.” (Anti-aliasing is a technique used to diminish the occasional appearance of jagged edges in computer-generated graphics.)
 
Indeed, along with the full 1080p native resolution, the visuals have been improved even further, simply because the engineers knew that with the additional time they could do even more. So they did. And now, not only will you see every single miniscule pixel in glorious 1080p native resolution on the PS4 – exactly as the artists rendered it – but you’ll also see an even cleaner, clearer and more brilliant moving image than anyone even imagined. (Pay special attention to finer details like the ropes on the ships if you want to get an eyeful of what we’re talking about.) And the best news for gamers on the latest next-gen systems? This anti-aliasing technique will be available for both PS4 and Xbox One.

I miss read an article that talked about Sony paying off Ubisoft for exclusive AC4 DLC and the PS4 1080 update in the same paragraph.

Do you know why the engineers mentioned in that quote of yours continued working on the game, specifically the PS4 version? Out of the goodness of their hearts and the hearts of the good fairy god others at ubisoft (bwahahahahaha) or because they where paid for it? It's an easy equation, especially when you do a 2+2=4 with the rather major deal Ubi did with SCE at the same time.

But I'm sure it's all coincidence ;)

You guys can argue about Ubisoft's update plans elsewhere.

Regardless, I haven't seen any glitches or issues since starting the game.

So if anyone has any specific things they would like checked, share them.

Otherwise the rest is just a sideshow.

Nothing to argue about, conjecture vs fact. If they believe the above they also admit to believing last generation masses of money must of traded hands with the PS3 vs 360 technical differences between multiplats. You know, because the 360 ran better on most, and exclusive DLC was still rampant last generation.

Money trading hands for technical patches, its like a one liner out of a comedians show... Guess Nvidia and ATi must be at it as well /facepalm

I don't know what's funnier, believing a patch being paid off and technical progress withheld on the other console, or the idea that its a conspiracy if developers continue to work on a game after its gone gold.

Come on man, just drop it. I happen to agree with you on the topic, but that doesn't mean you rush in this thread and argue about it. Geez. It shouldn't have been brought up in the first place, regardless of whether we think its true or not. This is not the thread for it.
