According to the official Title Update 10 notes from Ubisoft, the priority for this upcoming content is going to be “game health and generosity”. Players with access to the PTS will be able to experience a number of changes involving weapons and gear sets, including the removal of purple loot at higher difficulties and buffs to pretty much all weapons. Title Update 10 will also incorporate changes to PvP weapon damage, bug fixes, and improvements to loot drops from Veteran and Elite opponents.
Alongside the updates to loot drop rates and weapon damage, Ubisoft’s patch notes also state that the “developers are focusing on tweaks that will remove frustration” and make the game “as fun as possible,” and future PTS runs of upcoming content will become a possibility if this test is successful.
Ubisoft is opening up PTS access to PC players in part to assist them with monitoring the bug fixes that Title Update 10 is going to include, and it’s seeking feedback through the PTS-specific section of the official Division 2 forums.
The Hill League is available until June 3 for anyone with the Warlords of New York DLC.
Highlights from the patch notes for Phase 2 are available below:
