Tom Clancy’s ‘The Division’ Survival DLC, Patch 1.5 Release Date, News & Update: PTS Patch Notes Revealed; Game Updates Launching Simultaneously?
"Tom Clancy's The Division" recently received an update that introduced new content to players. The game Patch 1.5 and the final DLC, "Survival" are now available on the Public Test Realm (PTS). However, these new updates are only available to PC players on the PTS and those who want to play the game via their consoles may need to wait.
Some of the highlights of "The Division" Patch 1.5 and "Survival" DLC include the addition of a new World Tier, new named weapons and gear sets, and changes in the Enemy Armor Damage. The Enemy Armor Damage is now on PVP and has become a Major bonus. For all types of weapon, hip fire now recoils stronger compared to aiming down sights.
Meanwhile, Ubisoft has also introduced the Survival game mode and it was specifically mentioned that "The Division" Survival DLC is required to run the content. Under Survival, two game modes will be introduced: the PvP Survival and PvE Survival. In PvE mode, groups can gather on the map and help out other players but not kill them. In the PvP mode, players will be granted 20 per cent additional points to the final Survival score.
The idea of "The Division" Survival DLC is that once a player dies, the game is over. Basically, a player starts off with a pistol with no gear or a bad gear, as noted by WCCFTech. The player is not in a good condition and needs to survive. Crafting then becomes an essential skill in this game. It should be noted that the "Survival" DLC and Patch 1.5 are available only on the PTS, as of the moment. However, they should be available as soon as the PTS is over.
A final release date for "The Division" Survival DLC and the Patch 1.5 has yet to be determined, but it's expected that both will release simultaneously. You can check out the full patch notes applied on the game on the PTS here.
