The Division Patch in the Works to Fix Update 1.3 Issues

By | 4 months ago 

The developers at Ubisoft Massive assure fans a patch is in the works to fix problems from the implementation of Update 1.3 in Tom Clancy’s The Division.

According to a State of the Game post for Tom Clancy’s The Division, Ubisoft Massive is currently in the process of putting together a new client patch that will eliminate a lot of the problems reported by players that came about with the third-person shooter’s Update 1.3. Unfortunately, though, developers failed to mention exactly when the patch will be delivered, with the studio stating that it hopes to release the fixes for The Division “as soon as possible.”

As many fans are more than likely aware, not only did The Division‘s Update 1.3 bring about myriad problems, but also the action-RPG’s first paid expansion known as the Underground DLC encountered release issues on PC and Xbox One platforms, rendering a lot of would-be Agents unable to access the game itself. Of course, PlayStation 4 fans didn’t suffer the same fate, for the add-on has yet to be launched on Sony’s console due to a timed-exclusivity arrangement with Microsoft, as it has a release date of August 2, 2016 for PS4.

As far as the fixes for The Division‘s Update 1.3 are concerned, though, Ubisoft Massive intends on rectifying the nerfing of the Pulse Scan skill, with it now not being able to pick up on enemies as it should, providing a fix for AlphaBridge Gloves that have the wrong stats or none at all, the G36 base damage being too high, as well as several more. For those interested, fans can check out each and every one of the known problems reported thus far on the game’s forums right here.


While The Division‘s developers handle the heavy lifting required to fix the game’s Update 1.3 problems, there is good news to be had, as fans can now get the Ubisoft 30th Anniversary free DLC. As previously announced, players are being given the chance to deck their Agents out in three different outfits based on Ghost Recon, Rainbow Six, and Splinter Cell, as seen in the image above.

Furthermore, The Division‘s most recent State of the Game congratulated those fans who were able to beat the Dragon’s Nest Incursion on the world’s first Hard Mode run, with the PC players cntcgs, redsebi23, Hagganz, & Cl0udy69 coming away victorious. It remains to be seen, however, if anyone has been able to successfully complete it on the ultra-challenging difficulty mode, Heroic, which was released on July 5.

At any rate, Ubisoft Massive will hopefully have all of the kinks ironed out of The Division‘s system once it begins prepping for the release of the next instances of paid DLC with the Survival expansion sometime this summer, and Last Stand this winter. With these add-ons on the way, it’s important for the studio to keep The Division stable in order to build on what goodwill fans have left for the game’s developers.

Tom Clancy’s The Division is out now and is available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
