Earlier this week the Public Test Server for Title Update 5 for The Division 2 went live.

Testing is currently underway for some of the new content and features coming to the game in the next couple of weeks.

Ubisoft isn't just testing for bugs though, they say that participating players will also receive a survey after each testing phase to drive as much feedback as possible to the development team.

"We want to ensure each phase receives targeted feedback from the community, and so we encourage everyone to share their thoughts with us" Ubisoft told fans.

So be brutal, give 'em hell, with strongly worded critique. You can also find the PTS schedule for testing just below, so you know what they're testing as and when.

For those interest, have a watch of the latest State of the Game stream (below) in which the team this week focused on the PTS and Title Update 5.

It was also announced that The Division 2 servers will be shut down for maintenance on Thursday, July 4th at 09:30 AM CEST / 03:30 AM EDT / 12:30 AM PDT.

Estimated downtime is expected to last approximately 3 hours.

So far the only details surrounding this update on the live servers is related to the below:

  • Fixed an issue preventing players to pick up Specialization ammunition.

Hopefully, we'll see some more extensive patch notes following the update.

For now, read on for that updated PTS Schedule and pending PTS Patch Notes.
