The Division 2 update addresses a number of issues
Ubisoft has pushed a new update live for The Division 2 that focuses on bug fixing.
The update fixes a progression blocker in Castle Clinton, blue quality items dropping from regular NPCs in the Dark Zone, players obtaining multiple seasonal caches, and seasonal cache rewards becoming contaminated.
Developer Massive Entertainment has also temporarily disabled the ability to reset seasonal manhunts to prevent players from losing progress. The developer noted that a permanent fix for this issue will be released later this month.
Read the full patch notes for today’s update below:
- We are temporarily disabling the ability to reset seasonal manhunts to prevent lost progression towards a manhunt. This is a temporary solution while we are working on a more permanent fix meant to release later in March. Once the final fix is implemented, we will reactive the ability to reset manhunts.
- Fixed a progression blocker where an NPC became stuck at the last stage in Castle Clinton.
- Fixed an issue that granted an incorrect number of Specialization Points per SHD level.
- Fixed an issue where blue quality items dropped from regular NPCs in the DZ regardless of player max level.
- Fixed an issue where players would gain multiple seasonal caches.
- Fixed an issue with seasonal cache rewards becoming contaminated if players leveled in the season whilst in the DZ.
- Fixed an issue that prevented players from gaining seasonal XP from DZ activities.
- Fixed an issue where enemy NPCs would disappear at The Nest Control Point, halting progress at the “defend stage”.
- Fixed an issue that prevented completion of The Nest Control Point on challenging difficulty.
- Fixed an issue that would cause some NPCs to be stuck at spawn in various Control Points.
- Fixed some puzzle reset issues on all Hunter encounters.
- Fixed an issue causing Hunter encounters to give too many keys. If you received too many keys, you won’t receive new keys until your completed encounters match your amount of keys.
- Fixed an issue where players would become stuck in an infinite loading screen in the Dark Zone.
“These fixes are part of the ongoing efforts to fix bugs discovered since the launch of Warlords of New York and we are working on further changes/fixes that require additional time and will be deployed once ready,” the developer added.
The Division 2 is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
