The Public Test Server is available for download on Uplay today. It’s supposed to bring a bunch of changes to The Division in order to address the issues that have plagued the game since launch.
The PTS is finally here and it’s available for everyone to download. Ubisoft pushed back their DLCs to focus on this massive patch that overhauls the entire game. My PTS is currently downloading so I can’t comment on whether or not the changes are good or bad. I expect them to be great simply because I really like most of the things I’ve read from Ubisoft’s official statement.
The change that excites me the most are the gear scores. They’re all being lowered. A lower gear score does not mean we’re getting weaker. It means you’ll be less likely to get kicked out of a group before the mission even starts. I’m all for this change because even though I’m gear score 203 I still get kicked regularly from 220+ group of players.
I’ll give a good first impression after I play some of the game once it’s finished downloading.
The PTS is only available to PC users on Uplay, and Steam.
