Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 was released just yesterday, and a Day One patch was made available for download at the same time. The catch? The patch is bigger than the actual game.
The game’s base install size weighs in at just 4.6GB, which is entirely reasonable considering the massive space other games would eat up on your hard drive (looking at you, Master Chief Collection). However the Day One patch for Pro Skater 5 weighs in at 7.7GB, larger than the actual game itself.
At the moment of writing, its not been reported what the patch actually contains, but Gamespot have suggested that it could have something to do with the visuals of Pro Skater 5, which apparently saw a huge change late in the development cycle.
In related news, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 was released to very mixed reviews, evidence of which is abundant if one simply Googles the game. While Forbes pointed out that the game was released with no prior reviews (never a good sign), other sites such as Kotaku quickly went on to call Pro Skater 5 a “terrible” game.
