The company says the update introduces various performance improvements and gameplay fixes, while tackling UI issues including flickering and problems with the title’s skills system. The full patch notes can be viewed below.
VGC’s The Division 2 review said Ubisoft’s shooter offers slick thrills and plenty of content but features a dreadful story with nothing to say.
“If few can reasonably complain about the sheer volume of stuff in The Division 2, it ultimately feels like an all-you-can-eat buffet of gourmet junk food,” the verdict reads. “It’s keen to impress you with the size of its spread – and to make sure you’re too busy wolfing it down to realise it’s probably not doing you much good.”
