I can’t tell from up here whether it’s been refurbished yet.

Ubisoft’s 6.7GB (yikes) Patch 4 for Assassin’s Creed: Unity is rolling out on consoles today, but us PC players will have to wait until “later this week”. That’s according to the details provided by this post in the Assassin’s Creed: Unity forum.

Patch 4 had originally be due on 15 December, but Ubisoft delayed it at the last minute citing the need to … er … “refurbish Paris.”

When it does show up on uPlay, this is what we can expect. Unfortunately the notes are awfully vague:
