Game patches can be big, but earlier this morning Epic released a honkin' huge patch for Fortnite. The 10 GB whopper for the PlayStation 4 version of the game seemingly fixed a bug that was causing the game to crash, but it didn't add any content.
Epic has since apologized for the patch size on Twitter, saying it was "unexpected." It added, "We're looking into this issue right now, and apologize for the inconvenience."
We’re aware that the PS4 3.4.4 patch size is 10 GB, which was unexpected. We’re looking into this issue right now, and apologize for the inconvenience.— Fortnite (@FortniteGame) April 4, 2018
Epic's unsure why the patch is so huge, and it also seems to have no idea why the download for some people is a mere 470 MB (the patch's intended size) but balloons to 10 GB for other people. As of mid-morning ET, it affirmed the patch's safety over Twitter, and assured players it's still looking for a solution.
We released a PS4 patch today to address a significant game crash. Reported download size is between 470MB (intended) and 10GB. The patch is safe to download and the size issue should be resolved shortly.— Fortnite (@FortniteGame) April 4, 2018
The PlayStation 4's monster patch doesn't include any content for the very recent V3.4 update; seems it's just a bit of data that got out of control.
