How big is this update? At a whopping 38GB on Xbox One and 24GB on PS4, it stands to be a rather significant update to the game, and hopefully one that will fix and improve the overall experience.

One major issue, where the game would hang intermittently and pivitol times, including when accessing the VIP Stats menu and when completing games in Domination, has been fixed as part of Update 1.03.
