Ubisoft recently released an update for The Division and it brought in a few bugs and issues that players have pointed out early on after the update’s release. The developer is hearing out the concerns of players as Ubisoft is working on a fix to address the issues brought about by The Division update 1.6.1
A recent post on the game’s forum by Ubisoft’s Yannick reveals that the servers of the game will have a short restart later today. “The servers will undergo a 15 minutes restart this Tuesday, May 30th at 9:30 AM CEST / 3:30 AM EDT / 12:30 AM PDT,” says the post.
The post also says that during the restart, the developers will deploy a fix that will address the connectivity issues and DELTA errors that were found with the release of the recent The Division update 1.6.1. During the server restart, players should take note that they won’t be able to get in on the game for 15 minutes, which is just a small sacrifice to address the issues.
The Division Update 1.6.1
When update 1.6.1 went live, a lot of players from the community are reporting connectivity issues that hinder them from fully enjoying the game. From time to time, players are getting disconnected for servers and some are even getting the DELTA errors. The community went online to post their concerns regarding the issues and Ubisoft worked on a fix shortly after and it’s due to launch soon.
Aside from the server connectivity issues, The Division update 1.6.1 also added in several things to the game including bug fixes, tweaks and a new gameplay feature. The main focus of the recent update is the new Loadout feature. This added feature allows players to save their equipped Weapons, Gear, Skills and Talents to Loadout slots. Players have been asking for this feature for a long time now and it’s good that it’s already in the game.
Players will have a total of 6 Loadout slots per character and each Loadout can be equipped when not in combat. The new feature allows players to easily swap equipment sets based on the current situation. Previously, players had to go through the menus to handle their equipment, which took time and a bit of effort to do.
