The game developers at Ubisoft Massive release Tom Clancy’s The Division‘s Update 1.3 software patch for the action-RPG’s PlayStation 4 players today.
Following Tom Clancy‘s The Division‘s release of Update 1.3 on PC and Xbox One last week, players of Ubisoft Massive’s open world title on PlayStation 4 have now received the patch as well. Originally, fans of the game on each platform were supposed to get the sizable update simultaneously, but developers delayed it on Sony’s console.
However, this does not mean that PS4 fans will also be receiving the title’s Underground DLC today, as it is set to release on August 2 for the Sony system, which is about a month behind its launch date on PC and Xbox One due to a timed-exclusivity agreement between Microsoft and Ubisoft. Nonetheless, those playing The Division on the PlayStation 4 will now have all of the updates and refinements that were provided for PC and Xbox One fans, and every platform should also have been given some new fixes from the patch as well.
On top of all the weapon balance changes, bug fixes, and gameplay tweaking found in The Division‘s Update 1.3, the latest patch for PS4, Xbox One, and PC rectifies a problem where the game’s High Value Target non-playable characters were incorrectly capped at a max level of 30. Not to mention, the issue that caused the High Value Targets to not drop any Target intel has also been fixed.
In addition to the repairs made to The Division‘s High Value Targets, the developers fixed a farming bug that allowed players who died after defeating the final encounter to repeat it and gain loot again. Plus, the newest update for all platforms supposedly fixed instances of server instability that would have led to players being disconnected from the game.
Although Ubisoft Massive’s team of developers have been continually on top of The Division‘s maintenance since the launch of Update 1.3, some fans would argue that the studio isn’t being assiduous enough when it comes to fixing all of the game’s problems. After all, the newest patch for all of the systems didn’t provide the much-requested fix to the nerfing of the Pulse skill, of which many consider essential to have operating in full for play.
In any event, it’s obvious that with The Division still having plenty more paid DLC planned for the rest of this year, Ubisoft Massive is going to remain busy when it comes to more updates for the game. With that in mind, once the Underground expansion finally becomes available for PlayStation 4 players, hopefully fans won’t have to encounter the day one release issues that took place on PC and Xbox One.
Tom Clancy’s The Division is out now and is available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
