The Division

With the closed beta for The Division just a few more days away, Ubisoft has announced the company has been working hard on fixing all kinds of different issues with the game. The company held an Alpha last month and thanks to that round the firm was able to iron out more than 10,000 different bugs. Problem solving wasn’t limited to ways the game wasn’t running right, but also improved some issues that might not have been easily noticed but would make the game that much better in the long run.

Along with the 10,000+ bugs that were fixed thanks to feedback from people who were playing the Alpha, Ubisoft announced on its official forums that it made improvements to things like the interface, where it added more supported languages and the UI which will now have better readability and stability. The company also said it added balancing to weapons used by both players and NPCs. Check out the full patch notes below and get ready for the closed Beta for The Division launching on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One later this month.
