Got a feeling it's already in that 6gb patch we downloaded. In fact I'm certain of it because prior to that update it didn't show anything Dead Kings related and now it does.

Only gear for the DLC has been implemented. I remember Mr_Shade stating it was not included in the patch.

Original quote to avoid misunderstanding:


No, The reason the last patch was so big, was due to the optimisation of the maps ;)

Hmm interesting. I'm guessing around 1-2Gb.

The previous patch was also big because it was cumulative, rather than incremental (i.e., contained patches 1 & 2 as well).

My guess is that it will be unreasonably large, because that's how these companies 'roll' nowadays. Like so many others (and spearheaded by Apple, I'd add), they like to pretend that everyone has 100Mbit broadband at home; so they don't bother compressing their stuff.

Yes it did - the coach to Franciade (Dead Kings) was there before the patch

As a rough guide, I'd take the size of DLCs in previous-gen games and multiply by 4. That would make it 6-10 GB, I'd guess.

You might be right -- Freedom Cry PS4 was 7.5GB and on the PS3 it was 1.5GB

How about that. I thought of 5 as the factor, but then I backed off a bit.

And now remember we had a patch which was 6.7GB on PS4 and which also be about the size of a full (!) story DLC. Plus, at first I thought the patch fixed all performance issues, but it didn't. The game still ra at 20-23fps in crowded places.

This is only a funny side note, not a complaint. I got used to it. :p
