Recently, Ubisoft announced that the developers are delaying the upcoming expansion for The Division, as they are focusing to fix the core game. It seems that Ubisoft is very serious in its attempt to fix the game with update 1.4, as the company is inviting players from the community to help them fix the issues.
Ubisoft is already receiving some vital feedback from the community, but it seems that it is not enough for the developers. Ubisoft announced in a recent blog post that they will be bringing in players from the community to “make update 1.4 as valuable as possible”.
In two weeks, we’ll be bringing people from the community to Massive in order to help make Patch 1.4 as valuable to our players as possible. This type of direct interaction between us on the development side and those of you that are out saving New York in The Division every day is definitely one of the key ways to improve the experience for all players.
Ubisoft has noted that those who are interested should be free for travel from September 7th to 9th. Furthermore, Ubisoft will be paying for the tickets, stay and food.
The update 1.4 is due sometime in October and will bring a lot of changes to loot system and gameplay balancing.
- Fixing bugs, including those listed in our Known Issues as well as many other ones
- Making loot drops more relevant to the player
- Enemy difficulty and time to kill
- Gear Sets and weapons rebalancing
- Solo player experience
- Dark Zone and PvP balancing
- Quality of life additions based on community suggestions (such as weapon skins no longer taking inventory space)
However, The Division movie is also in the works, which will star Jessica Chastain and Jake Gyllenhaal as lead roles. Alos Jake Gyllenhaal will also produce the movie.
The Division is a third person multiplayer shooter developed by Ubisoft Massive for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
