‘Tom Clancy’s The Division’ PTS Release Date, News & Update: PTS For Update 1.4 Going Live On September 26
The "Tom Clancy's The Division" public test server (PTS) will go live on Sept. 26, 2016. According to Ubisoft, players who have a PC copy of "The Division" can access the PTS, although they may have to download a different version of the game.
Polygon noted that after "The Division" PTS players load the separate game version, they can try new patches and updates before going live. "The Division" players can still use the same characters in most cases, although they will not be able to transfer their progress. Gamers should expect a number of crashes, bugs and other issues while playing on "The Division" PTS. A technical test was started on September 22 and ended on September 25, where selected players were asked to provide more feedback on the complete access flow.
Ubisoft stated that they will keep "The Division" PTS open for as long as necessary, so that they continue to receive as much feedback as possible. When they acquire enough feedback, they will close the PTS and reopen whenever there are new things that they would like to test on "The Division." Update 1.4 is reportedly almost ready to launch, but they will feature a final revision based on the feedback of the September 26 PTS.
In the meantime, Ubisoft is dedicated to addressing several issues in "The Division" via update 1.4. The game developer aims to resolve many or all of the major issues that have been plaguing the game since it released. The expansion of "The Division" was postponed so that more emphasis can be given to fixing the main title. Ubisoft Massive seems to be prepared for the upcoming PTS and may have fixed the previous connectivity issues.
Notably, PTS players will need to have about 45GB of free data to download the separate game version. Hopefully, "The Division" Update 1.4 will resolve glitches and major problems that will ultimately drive fans back into the game. It is set to launch sometime in October 2016 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. More updates and details are expected soon.
