Fortnite players on PS4 were surprised this morning to find a 10GB download waiting for them.

Update: Epic games has now confirmed that the patch should now be just 470MB. Anyone who hasn’t started the download yet should get the correct size, and those who already downloaded 10GB are fine to continue playing.

Original story: This massive download is patch 3.4.4 for Fortnite, but developer Epic Games did not intend for it to be this big.

The update is designed to fix crashes and freezes specific to the PS4 version, and Epic was caught off guard by the the 10GB download requirement same as everyone else.

The developer has now confirmed that it’s looking the issue.

If you’re not anxious to play Fortnite right now, it may be best to not download the patch and wait a few hours. Hopefully when Epic does solve the problem, the actual patch size will be a lot smaller.
