The Division's New DLC Release Ran Into Some Issues
The Division was updated today to introduce the game's first paid expansion, Underground, as well as some major weapon balance changes and more. Unfortunately for some players, the rollout was not as smooth as they would have liked. Some players reported being unable to access the Underground content, while connectivity issues have also popped up.
Thankfully, Ubisoft Massive has provided workaround instructions for some of the problems, while it is investigating the connectivity issues. Here is a rundown of the problems (and solutions where available), as seen on The Division's Twitter channel today:
[XBox] Season Pass: make sure to unlock the DLC in the In-game store. Click purchase and the game will detect that you own the season pass— The Division (@TheDivisionGame) June 28, 2016
[PC] If you can't access the Underground content, please restart your Uplay client— The Division (@TheDivisionGame) June 28, 2016
If Underground is shown as “Offline” in-game, make sure to complete the Secure Quarantine Center side mission shown on your Map— The Division (@TheDivisionGame) June 28, 2016
We are aware of an issue on PC where the Underground DLC will not show as Owned despite owning the Season Pass. This is being worked on.— The Division (@TheDivisionGame) June 28, 2016
[PC] The issue where Underground would not be shown as Owned when owning the Season Pass should now be fixed. Make sure to restart the game— The Division (@TheDivisionGame) June 28, 2016
Delta error 20001082 & extended waiting queues: these connectivity issues are under investigation— The Division (@TheDivisionGame) June 28, 2016
These are just the latest issues with The Division. When Ubisoft Massive released patch 1.2 in May, there were also quite a few problems that the developer responded to, one of which involved characters going missing.
Underground features a new raid called Dragon's Nest, and new (underground) areas to explore that offer "endless replayability." Ubisoft has achieved this by introducing what is essentially randomly generated dungeons.
Along with the new content, The Division also received its 1.3 update today. This introduces major weapon balance changes and a talent recalibration system, and fixes a bug where the moon was upside down. Check out the full patch notes here.
The Division's other two upcoming expansions are called Survival and Last Stand. All three are included in the $40 DLC pass. Release dates for these have not been announced.
