Attendees of the SMITE World Championship (SWC) will be able to play a pre-release version of the Xbox One version of SMITE. The game will be shown off and then available for everyone at the event to try. Attendees at the event will get the first public look, while viewers watching the SWC on Twitch will see a sneak-peak of the gameplay. The SWC is being held January 9th to the 11th, with a prize pool currently over $1.7 million.
The unfortunate bad news for Assassin's Creed Unity does not appear to stop. Yesterday we reported that patch #4 had arrived for Playstation 4 and Xbox One, coming in at 6.7 GB. When Pertreyu attempted to download the new update, the information screen showed a 40 GB download, equal to the full install of the game. It's an unfortunate glitch, with many players experiencing the problem. Ubisoft confirmed in a blog post that this is a mistake, however no time estimate on when this issue will be fixed. The problem seems to be replacing the entire game, rather than the parts fixed by the patch. No word on issues with the Playstation 4 version.
