Ubisoft have issued a series of fixes to Tom Clancy’s The Division, as well as deploying a PC client patch to resolve a number of bugs.
Key problems had been raised which prompted Ubisoft to implement the following changes. Bugs where any weapon could be used with the Ballistic Shield, and another where players are rewarded with too much Field Proficiency XP after leaving a Survival session have been fixed. Another bug has been resolved where the same named NPC could be endlessly killed.
A patch has also been deployed for a PC client, which will fix certain instances. For example, players were experiencing problems with Xbox controllers not working on PC, and in some cases the fullscreen mode not working. Audio positioning has also been improved, as well as improvements to high COU usage cases. On the subject of PC, DirextX12 is now supported, and players should no longer experience losing control of their characters.
Ubisoft have also announced that the registration for the new Elite Task force has now closed. A statement on the official site read: “A big thanks to all the people that signed up; we’ll get in touch with the players chosen to be a part of the group in the very near future. We can’t wait to see you in North Carolina next year!”
The second expansion for The Division, entitled Survival, will hit PlayStation 4 on December 20th. A patch will be released on the same day to fix CE-errors that players have experienced, as well as adding support for the PS4 Pro.
