Greetings Agents,

Last week, we announced that Update 1.4 will focus entirely on improving the core gameplay experience, and that we want you to be part of it. Since then, we kick started our Agent Intel (http://forums.ubi.com/forumdisplay.php/1309-Agent-Intel) forum section to gather your feedback on several topics, opened registration to the Elite Task Force (http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1486769-Join-the-Elite-Task-Force), and we’ve seen a lot of very constructive feedback across the forums, Reddit, YouTube and Twitch. The enthusiasm that you have shown to help us make the game better is incredible and only proves that this is an important step in the right direction!

As many pointed out after we announced Update 1.4, a great way to involve you would be to let you try the update before its release. Good news! We are thrilled to confirm that we will be opening a Public Test Server on PC for The Division in the near future.

More details will follow in the coming days, but we wanted to break the news as soon as possible so you can have full visibility on the next steps we are implementing to improve the game.

The article can also be found on the website (http://tomclancy-thedivision.ubi.com/game/en-GB/news/detail.aspx?c=tcm:154-265872-16&ct=tcm:148-76770-32).

Stay tuned for more!
The Division Dev Team

So why do you do the weekly maintenance if you are not going to implement or do anything new? please stop trol us guys we already understood u gave op un this game, at least stop trol us by those usless "maintenances" servers are getting unpopolated and everyone is leaving, i will just keep playing cuz i don't have anything better to do honestly.. i'm disappointed ,like everyone else in this forum is.

Wonder how they are going to port our inventory and characters over to the test server since it is likely that some of the very gear they would be moving over would be one of the reasons for the imbalance we have now. Perhaps have everyone begin with a default level 30 character or gear that they want tested? It would waste too much time to require people to level up all over again especially when how balanced and naturally progressing the main story already was.
Meh, I am sure they will explain that more at a later date.

This is a great news..So, its getting interesting after all..I know people want testing server on consoles as well but it isn't easy..That's why CTE for BF4 came pretty late on Xbox One and that too cause they worked with microsoft to make it happen..It was never implemented on PS4..

This is a fantastic Idea and one that I thought should have been used a long time ago.

Its very clear that the majority here haven't been involved in a Public Test before. Porting characters and such ins't used. The easiest way to tell you how it works would be to check out how Blizzard did Diablo 3:Reaper of Souls Public Test Realm. Same game, just 400% higher drop rates on all types of gear and then tweaking of all the skills and loot as they go. Its not a complicated situation and it works very well.

I can understand players wanting Console PTA, and I do think its possible too. they could simple use the Beta file and make the relevant changes there.

Ubisoft should have had a server like this, way before the launch of the game, but hell Ubisoft never invests in support, technology or... well their own employees. They have a lot of testers but none gives a **** about the games they play, probably that's why most of the games they release are a mess at release. Quite sad to see a company who is incapable of taking care of its own products (games in our case).

The way this was vaguely hit on in the SoG this morning it kinda sounds like not only will this be tested on PC only, which is fine I understand why, but that only ppl who play on PC will be able to test which i think is bunk. If this is true and not me just pulling conclusions from the vagueness of the stream I think it's wrong anyone who wants to test the game should be able to have their account verified and long in to the test server through pc

Why can't you let anyone with a UPlay account that is connected to the Division play the PTS on the PC? Then console players can test as well (if they have a PC, but play primarily on console) without purchasing another copy of the game.

Are you incapable of understanding that the issue isn't that Massive/Ubisoft doesn't want it, instead it's the enclosed nature of the system and money hungry MS/Sony along with their certification process, and that just defeats the purpose.

PTS is going to be a hotfix heaven, meaning a lot of small tweaks deployed rapidly, it cannot work with an obligatory fee and nearly a month of delay.

I've used to game on consoles but now I'm currently playing on PC. If you are playing on Ps4 for example, any patches or updates made to a game must first past certification by Sony and get Sony's approval before the user would see those changes take place in game. Back when I was on the Ps4, the certification process could take a few days or even a week or longer. On PC they could literally implement patches back to back within minutes of each other... making the process much much faster and a logical choice for addressing this issue in a timely manner.

I know it kinda sucks, but it's not the Devs fault, it's just one of those "cons" that you have to deal with when playing on a console.

First of all... You act like a child and on top of that, the 1 month exclusivity is for xbox AND PC...

Iam completely fine as a PS4 player that I wont have a chance to play on the PTS. That said I would like to play it, but I fully understand the reasoning behind having it only on PC. Running three PTS servers would be completely useless regarding man power needed to mainintain that AND also due to the annoying certification process SONY has with everything.

I'm a ps4 player who like a lot of others have a pc too ... I chose to get my copy of the division on ps4 because of the ecosystem rather than despite it. I like the fact you very rarely get hackers and I also like the strict quality controls that Sony impose on developer's.
Of course that has stopped massive being able to put the PTS on ps4 and I'm ok with that. However I would say that I'm not alone in feeling a bit disenfranchised at the moment so please massive give us console players access to the PTS on pc it wouldn't be impossible to validate our accounts and would make us feel involved again.

Thanks ... Please keep listening.

From the video they talked about it being the whole game, but with whatever implementation of the 1.4 patch they have on it at the time, meaning it might be buggy at times, as they work through the issues. They also noted that anything you get on the new server, will not transfer to the regular game. From what they said, you will be able to use existing characters or start a new character, but once again, it will have no effect on the regular servers or your characters there, as it's saving the info separately...

How fast your download speed bruh? I checked the FAQ for PTS and its says that you will need to download again the whole game, which is currently 38 GB as of this writing. I will need a whole day to redownload this PTS, which is bummer :P they should instead check if some resources can be reuse for this client so save time in downloading. Not everyone has a gifted MBPS, which i only have max 1.8 mbps! X__X

Obviously our uplay accounts already know we own the game on console so would it be possible to allow us to download PTS for PC?

Even if it's a no, please put us out our missery :)

It's a separate game on UPlay.

You have to change the filter to "all" games, instead of "installed " games.

How hard is it, to explain this, massive?

Not really screwed in any way for not having access to the PTS server, as they also pointed out in state of the game it simply is not possible for them to do it on the consoles or affordable, so the pc PTS is all that will be available.

And with the current changes we have seen and tested it does feel at least for me that they are back at the old feel you had when leveling, and the fact they made it so you have an xp bar and get a reward when it levels up or maxes out, I think of it as rep or proficiency gain compared to actual xp gain.

The weapons are not laser beams anymore takes actual burst fire and control again same as when leveling but that is at lower gearscore level and not that good attachments have not played that much last few days, so it will take me some time to get high end gear again, but so far i am impressed with the changes.

Hallo zusammen,
hab jetzt 3 tage den Public Server mit den neuen Mods und Level max 229 getestet. sind bestimmt einige e
Errungenschaften mit dabei aber da ich mich das letzte halbe Jahr auf Level 255 gekämpft bzw. gequält habe und ich jetzt froh bin soweit gekommen zu sein macht es für mich keinen sinn mehr hier weiterzumachen wenn uplay das so abändert wie es auf den test Server läuft.

Since then, we kick started our agent intel (http://forums.ubi.com/forumdisplay.php/1309-agent-intel) forum section to gather your feedback on several topics, opened registration to the elite task force (http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1486769-join-the-elite-task-force), and we’ve seen a lot of very constructive feedback across the forums, reddit, youtube and twitch. The enthusiasm that you have shown to help us make the game better is incredible and only proves that this is an important step in the right direction!

As many pointed out after we announced update 1.4, a great way to involve you would be to let you try the update before its release. Good news! We are thrilled to confirm that we will be opening a public test server on pc for the division in the near future.

More details will follow in the coming days, but we wanted to break the news as soon as possible so you can have full visibility on the next steps we are implementing to improve the game.

The article can also be found on the website (http://tomclancy-thedivision.ubi.com/game/en-gb/news/detail.aspx?c=tcm:154-265872-16&ct=tcm:148-76770-32).

Stay tuned for more!
the division dev team
