Ubisoft has announced that the upcoming Survival DLC for their third person shooter game, The Division, has been delayed until later this year.
Survival is the second expansion pack coming out for The Division. The first expansion pack, Underground, was released back in July, and added tons of new content to the game. The Survival expansion pack aimed to do the same, however, the upcoming DLC was delayed until later this year.
Ubisoft aim to fix the core game, before releasing any additional content. According to Ubisoft, the delay, “enable us to strengthen the core experience before adding new content, but also continuously improve it by allowing for more production time to ensure the quality of future updates as well.”
The Survival DLC was expect to be released in September, however, due to community feedback related to the issues players have faced in game, Ubisoft was forced to delay it. The expansion pack was supposed to be released alongside Update 1.4. The update has also been delayed and is now being released in October, and will “focus entirely on bug fixing, game balancing and other improvements.”
Some of the changes that the update will introduce are listed below:
- Fixing bugs
- Making loot drops more relevant to the player
- Enemy difficulty and time to kill
- Gear Sets and weapons balancing
- Solo player experience
- Dark Zone and PvP balancing
- Quality of life additions based on community suggestions (such as weapon skins no longer taking inventory space)
Ubisoft is listening to the community and are hard at work, fixing all the issues the community has been complaining about. The feedback is being heard and the upcoming update aims to resolve all of the issues. No release date for neither the Survival DLC or Update 1.4 has been confirmed as of yet.
