During today’s State of the Game, Ubisoft Massive discussed its 2017 plans for The Division.

According to the studio, it also plans to launch a second Elite Task Force to help test out Patch 1.6, which will focus on PvP and the Dark Zone. It will be hosted at Red Storm in North Carolina from January 11-13.

The team also goes over the fixes applied during today’s downtime, such as players being unable to collect the reward for completing all side missions in a zone.

Next week, a patch on PC will be released and will not only activate DirectX 12, but it will also fix an issue which will cause the loss of character controls. The team has also lowered performance impact with high CPU usage, and fixed an issue with controllers on PC. Look out for the patch, then.

The team said it is also continuously updating the Known Issues, tried to dispel the confusion around the Uncomplicated talent on the Famas and how it works with AlphaBridge, and assured players Barret’s Bulletproof Chest bonuses are now working as intended, but the bonuses will not be displayed in the UI as it requires a client patch.

We’ve seen some discussions around the bonuses from Barret’s Bulletproof Chest not working.

Arekkz goes over all of this and more in the video above, so be sure to give it a watch.

    It’s been one year since I abandoned my office work and I never felt so good in my life… I started to work at home, for a company I found over internet, several hrs /a day, and I make much more than i did on my old work… Last check i got was for 9 thousand bucks… Great thing about this work is that now i have more time to spend with my family… http://secure93.com

    Much as I’ve rehashed not liking the division… /-: at least when they said they’re staying committed to it, and that this would be an ongoing franchise in the future,
    they’re apparently not kidding.
    they have no plans on abandoning the game, and they’re going to stick with it, it would seem, until all issues are repaired and they find a balance that is agreeable,
    I think one of the first things they should address is ttk of some of the bosses..it really really is ridiculous, particularly when it likes to throw all these mini-bosses with multiple level health bars at you, and then groups, large groups, of Minions on top of that. it’s just a cheap way of prolonging fights…. as far as the dark Zone… I wish them well with that,again, my own personal opinion is, it is a horrible concept 4 PVP and equates to harassment and trolling as a game mode, and the majority of people I have on my friends list that’s still like the division, hate the dark Zone, because of the concept of it.
    that “cut the rope” feature was the last straw… Terrible Idea, period.
