Video game developer Ubisoft Massive provides an official update to make the Underground DLC for Tom Clancy’s The Division available for the PlayStation 4.
After having been available as a PC and Xbox One exclusive for a month, the Underground DLC for Tom Clancy’s The Division is now finally launching for the PlayStation 4. Earlier today, the developers at Ubisoft Massive took down the servers in order to add the expansion during a brief maintenance window of 30 minutes.
Shortly following the outage for the update, however, some fans have claimed that the Underground DLC is nowhere to be found in The Division, which has prompted developers to say the content should appear after it begins rolling out “progressively in each region.” Not to mention, as seen in the tweets below, there have been reports of Delta errors popping up whenever players try to access the game—one of the similar release issues that occurred when the add-on was made available on PC and Xbox One—and Ubisoft Massive is currently investigating the problem.

Although it’s disappointing to hear that some fans are unable to access the Underground DLC on PlayStation 4 just yet, considering the fact that PS4 owners had to wait for about a month for the Underground DLC to simply drop for the console, most players will be able to exercise patience and wait a mite longer. However, it’s indeed strange that Ubisoft Massive is encountering what appear to be similar issues with the add-on’s launch on the Sony system after having experienced comparable problems over 30 days ago for other platforms. One would imagine that given the time in between now and then that developers would have foreseen these errors and dealt with them.
Once the Underground DLC becomes available to all of The Divsion‘s players on PlayStation 4, they should be privy to access all of the materials previously available only to PC and Xbox One fans. For instance, the new Dragon’s Nest Incursion ought to be a part of the update, as well as fresh gear sets. Those who already own the third-person shooter’s Season Pass should see it appear as soon as it’s available, but fans wanting to buy it as a standalone item can do so for $15.
Today’s launch of the Underground DLC for The Division on PlayStation 4 follows the release of Update 1.3 on the platform about a month ago. Much like the paid add-on, PS4 fans had to wait for the patch to hit the Sony console after having been available to the PC and Xbox One first.
As far as the future of The Division‘s paid content is concerned, the action-RPG still has two more pieces of DLC in the chamber with the Survival expansion set to come after Underground, and Last Stand to release thereafter. With any luck, the developers at Ubisoft Massive will be able to smoothly launch these final add-ons and not subject The Division‘s fans to any more bugs, glitches, and errors.
Tom Clancy’s The Division is out now and is available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
