Assassin's Creed's next update will boost performance and save gamers 34 GB of storage on PC

Assassin's Creed Valhalla's 1.4.1 update is making the game faster and leaner

Next week, Assassin's Creed Valhalla players will need to effectively re-download the entire game. Patch 1.4.1 is coming, and it will restructure the game to reduce its storage requirements and boost performance.

On PC, this patch will require a 78 GB download, which will result in a final install size of 77 GB. After this patch, Assassin's Creed Valhalla will be 34 GB smaller than before, and after the patch, PC gamers can expect faster loading times, improved world data streaming and better "overall runtime performance".

Update 1.4.1 will help Ubisoft to support Assassin's Creed Valhalla with "future content and game updates".

On consoles, gamers will receive similar reductions in Assassin's Creed Valhalla's install size, with Xbox Series X/S receiving the largest storage size reduction (a 44 GB reduction). Assassin's Creed's 1.4.1 update is due to arrive next week.

34GB is a fairly hefty chunk, I'm not buying "better compression" that they will undoubtedly claim, I'm betting quality of assets has been reduced here and there.Quote

Depends on how poorly they maintained the original install base. Leveraging SSDs in PCs and Consoles could allow them to streamline their data structures into denser install sizes.

Better runtime performance? Maybe so but only if they were I/O limited before hand such as texture pop in, slow loading etc. Which I person never noticed even on PS5.
Though they could be talking about other areas of improvement.Quote

Shame they couldn't have made it patch the game smaller somehow than redownloading the whole game, but long term it's good i guess.Quote
