The Division: New Patch Coming to Fix These Issues

Also, you can now pick up your free Ubisoft 30th Anniversary DLC.


A new update for The Division is in the works with the aim of fixing some of the problems introduced to the game following the recent 1.3 update.

There is no timetable yet for when the patch will be delivered, but in a State of the Game post, Ubisoft said it hopes to release it "as soon as possible."

Some of the known issues, which will presumably be fixed with the upcoming update, including things like Pulse Scan not picking up enemies as it should, AlphaBridge Gloves that have the wrong stats (or none at all), too much weapon damage for the G36, and more.

You can see a rundown of The Division's current known issues here in the game's forums.

The developer also used the State of the Game blog post to remind people that the Ubisoft 30th Anniversary free DLC is now available in The Division. As announced previously, this includes outfits based on other Ubisoft franchises such as Splinter Cell, Ghost Recon, and Rainbow Six. You can see the outfits in the image above, while redemption instructions for the content are available here.

Additionally, Ubisoft revealed the names of the players who completed the world's first Hard Mode run for the new Dragon's Nest Incursion; it came to the game through the Underground expansion. As you can see in the tweet below, the team of PC players completed the Incursion on June 28, which is the day that Underground launched on PC and Xbox One.

A new, ultra-challenging difficulty mode, Heroic, was released on July 5. Whether or not anyone has beaten Dragon's Nest on this difficulty setting yet remains to be seen. Heroic mode is also available for other Incursions, as well as regular missions.

The Underground expansion launches for PlayStation 4 on August 2. The Division's paid DLC comes to Xbox One and PC first due to a timed-exclusivity arrangement between Microsoft and Ubisoft.
