What is the deal with all of the patching
I spent hours waiting for 4GB worth of patches to download and install through the patcher. So why is it that every time I try to load into a zone, or a mission or anything that the game has more patches to download? This is really annoying.

I've been sitting here for almost 10 minutes waiting for the game to patch up so that I can load into a Delta volanis planet exploration.

You have on-demand patching enabled, which means that the came doesn't download everything at once at the launcher, and instead downloads certain things as needed. You can turn this off by clicking options on the launcher and disabling on-demand patching. Good Luck.

They implemented an on-demand patching feature which downloads patched files only as needed, to make the launch process faster.

There's an option in the launcher to disable on-demand patching. Enable that, and it will download the entire patch content before launching the game, and the on-the-fly patching that goes on in load screens should stop.
