Ever since Ubisoft launched their latest looter shooter found in The Division 2, the overall reaction to the online game has been overwhelmingly positive. That same great feedback continued when the studio launched their Tidal Basin update, though there were a few setbacks with the loot changes and how the gear was set up. To correct this and make the game even better, Ubisoft took to their website to outline why they chose a small delay for the upcoming content update that was scheduled.
“In order to fine-tune the balance of our game and to ensure the best possible player experience for everyone, we have decided to move the release of Title Update 3–including Operation Dark Hours, our 8-player Raid–from April 25 to May 2019,” reads the latest blog post from Ubisoft concerning the delay. “The final release date of Title Update 3 will be based on results from further testing and balancing of the game. Operation Dark Hours will be your biggest challenge to date, and we want to make sure that we’ve properly tested the large amount of balance changes that are coming to both PvE and PvP and listen to your feedback about the changes before introducing the raid.”
They added, “The Division 2 is a live game, and the team is committed to improve the quality of all upcoming updates. As announced on State of the Game last week, we are opening a Public Test Server (PTS) for The Division 2 on PC to test further updates and balance changes before they are released. The plan is to structure the PTS in phases, each lasting a few days and focusing on a specific part of the game. We will have surveys and dedicated forum threads (together with our traditional general and technical issues forums) to cover these topics.”
The PTS will be live through Uplay for anyone that is playing the looter shooter on PC with several of the new features already live, though unfortunately the raid will not be a part of the early rollout.
Even more changes are ahead as the team over at Ubisoft continues to gather feedback from players all over the world. As for the game itself, you can get in on the action on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
