[Info] Public Test Server is coming to PC soon
The Division 2’s getting a PTS on PC ahead of the next big update (but the raid isn’t included) The Division 2 was having a tough week in terms of bugs, glitches, and balance concerns (like overpowered enemies that have a nasty point of rushing down players with no regard for cover, glitches that temporarily took daily and weekly projects offline, and some weird loot balancing that makes farming low-level items on a new character the best way to boost your damage)
So There is opening up Public Test Servers (PTS) attempt to head off glitches and balance issues before they get to the Live server. Although the original Division only experimented with running console test servers, they decided to stick with PC testing for now. “we’ve seen the conversation in our community with the balancing in the game and everything. And there’s a lot of this conversation that we would prefer to have before the update comes out. So there’s a lot of those things that we would rather put on a PTS, and then we would have that feedback and we can act on it and fix it for the upcoming update.” in The Division 2’s latest State of the Game update, Live content manager Yannick Banchereau “No, the raid is not gonna be available on the PTS, we’re not gonna spoil in on the PTS so that one will remain secret. But what’s very important to us is to test the overall stability and the overall quality of the update, and all the balancing and all the potential new items we’re adding, these kinds of things. We want people to experiment with them and tell up if these are comfortable, if they’re balanced in a proper way, or if they’re already figuring out ways to make broken builds and things like that”. The PTS client will appear as a separate, optional download on the Uplay launcher for all PC players (it’s unavailable on the Epic Games Store) ahead of Title Update 3 in this month. What you’ve done in Live servers will automatically be copied over onto the PTS and will be available for testing. Even if you’re playing on console and can’t participate in the PTS, yet you can watch streams or read the discussion about the potential changes. Banchereau also confirmed that there aren’t any non-disclosure agreements for PTS players.
