The Division 2 Update 1.04 Fixes Skill Issues and Various Gameplay Bugs

The Division 2 update version 1.04 is now live on PS4, Xbox One, and PC following three hours downtime and official server maintenance. The latest patch fixes various gameplay bugs, flickering issues and those related to skills which were partly fixed in the previous update.

The latest update is important for everyone as it fixes a lot of issues reported since the game’s launch. One of the biggest changes include improvements to the co-op health scaling. It also reduces the flickering and distortion effects caused while navigating the menus.

Massive has also fixed the bug which caused The Division 2 skills to disappear quickly and go on cooldown. The Division 2 patch 1.04 weighs in around 2.3 GB on PlayStation 4 and it’s the first big patch of the game since its launch.
