Latest Xbox One Assassin's Creed Unity patch forces a 40GB game download

Ubisoft's latest issue with Assassin's Creed Unity showed up Tuesday for Xbox One owners as a mistake in the launch of a new patch forced those gamers to redownload the entire 40GB game.

Ubisoft is aware of this problem, according to a post on the official Assassin's Creed Unity blog, but there's no word on when it will be fixed. It stated:

"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. This issue isn't causing any other problems and once the download is completed players will have the most-up-to-date and fully patched version of Assassin's Creed Unity. We are working with Microsoft on a solution to reduce the total download to the intended size so that you can get back into the game faster, but as of now we have no ETA on when this will be resolved.

If you happen to still have the Xbox One disc version of the game, Ubisoft says that uninstalling Assassin's Creed Unity and then reinstalling it from the disc will allow just the small patch to download. Ubisoft has already offered owners either a free game or a free DLC pack to make up for earlier problems with Assasins's Creed Unity since its launch in November.
