Since the game is 50gb large, is it possible that Dead Kings is already on the disc, and wont be a seperate download once its released? Because if AC Unity alone is 50gb Im going to kill a puppy.

It's very doubtful Dead Kings is already included. It doesn't really make sense they would be holding off releasing content if it were already finished. There's just a lot of resources for the game, that's what makes it so big. As for how much the DLC will add, that's hard to say, but it's likely it will reuse some of the existing assets.

Some stuff is on disc actually. Part of voice over and 2 pre-rendered cutscenes. Usually this stuff is recorded way before the work on content is finished so Im not surprised. Also patch 1.3 added about 800mb of data just for new items (all of them remain locked for now). But the actual Dead Kings content (new town and missions) is still not in game files.

PS game occupies 43gb after install, not 50.

It wasn't overtly on the disc when i first installed but became clearly visible in game after Patch 3.

The method to access the dlc is visible, but not the content - that's still to come ;)

It would make perfect sense to not release something you are finished with. Just like they do with movies, they may have a movie complete months, even over a year before releasing due to market conditions, business factors, there are many reasons.
