Greetings Agents!

In last week’s State of the Game (http://tomclancy-thedivision.ubi.com/game/en-GB/news/detail.aspx?c=tcm:154-249532-16&ct=tcm:148-76770-32) we took a look at some of the balancing changes that will hit us in update 1.2. We aren’t slowing down however, with patch 1.2 released next Tuesday the 24th there is a lot to look forward to! Check out the trailer below!


We will also be live tonight with the Special Report livestream (https://www.twitch.tv/thedivisiongame) at 19:00 CEST / 10:00 PDT / 13:00 EDT. There’s a lot to discuss and show so make sure you join us! If you missed it you can check out the past broadcasts for the entire VOD.

We had our weekly maintenance (http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1450771-Sever-Maintenance-May-19?p=11710915#post11710915) this morning to make further optimizations to the servers and clean up the databases.


The trailer showed off a few awesome features that are coming with update 1.2. Check out the latest Intelligence Annex (http://tomclancy-thedivision.ubi.com/game/en-GB/news/detail.aspx?c=tcm:154-250474-16&ct=tcm:148-76770-32) for more information!

Additionally, there are a lot of exciting changes to loot drops in update 1.2. Find out more here (http://tomclancy-thedivision.ubi.com/game/en-GB/news/detail.aspx?c=tcm:154-250975-16&ct=tcm:148-76770-32)!

We have much more to talk about on our Special Report tonight (https://www.twitch.tv/thedivisiongame), be sure to tune in!


We are all strapped in and ready for the release of update 1.2 on Tuesday next week. This will require a 3 hour maintenance starting at 9:01 CEST / 00:01am PDT / 03:01am EDT.

The patch notes will also be released early next week so be on the lookout for them!



Last Friday a large number of players had their 14 day ban expired. We are actively monitoring the situation and handing out 14 day bans to first time offenders and permanently banning repeat offenders.


We have seen that the Dark Zone has been a constant discussion point over the past few days and many improvement requests and suggestions have be made. Some of these points should be address with the changes that we are bringing in update 1.2 and we will keep monitoring the situation and discussions to see if any further changes are needed.


Stash size has been a constant discussion since the launch of the game. Update 1.2 will not bring an increased stash size but this is definitely something we are working on. Adding space to the stash has a lot of technicalities behind it. By increasing stash size you increase database space and traffic load to that database cluster which is where your character data is saved. It’s imperative that this is implement correctly as any issues could impact game stability.
