Overall, the "footprint" of the game on your HDD will be lessened through consolidating patches and data, which in turn equates to a reduction in match loading times of about 10% on consoles. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners can expect the smallest patch size, although it still comes in at a pretty hefty 15 GB.

Ubisoft is pushing out a enormous patch for Rainbow Six: Siege, with the non-4K update coming in at 26GB, while the 4K update is a massive 42GB. Alternatively, if you are on PC without the ultra HD textures, then the patch will weigh in at 26GB.

Do you mind big updates?

"With this new patch, we plan on resetting the foundation that future patches are built upon, and establishing the Y2S3.0 patch as the new baseline that we will update the game client from", the dev team said in an update. This simplifies the patching process, and reduces the download size.

However, China has used those 15 years to cement its claims, while pushing Asean to issue ever-weaker statements of opposition. Satellite images have shown that Vietnam has carried out reclamation work in two sites in the disputed seas in recent years.

Once this patch is over and done with though, the game should take up less space on disk going forward. And, it should mean faster load times for all players. "While it is hard to determine an exact loading time reduction percentage for PC due to the variety of configurations, consoles will see about 10% faster loading times for matches".

From the offset Ubisoft makes clear that this patch will be larger than usual, and in it they'll be making changes to how data is organised and how they generat patches in the future.

PC users will also see "a slight increase in quality for character textures and a significant increase for environment texture quality available for all settings" from Low to Ultra.
