The Division 2 update plans target PC performance

Ubisoft has detailed its ongoing plans for The Division 2 in a rather lengthy post over on the community forums. The aim is to 'share not only updates on present issues but also contextualize some of our design decisions.'

First up, Patch 2.1, which is set to arrive this week, will tackle issues with the Crafting Bench, along with a fix for characters getting stuck in the revive animation. A fix is also planned for the True Patriot gear set bonus and the Revive Hive is also getting a couple of tweaks, with more expected in the future.

As part of the larger picture, there's a huge list of items that Ubisoft is aware of (and working on) and, you'll be pleased to learn, PC performance issues are one of them. They're currently looking to reproduce the problems players have been experiencing and have requested more feedback on these issues. In the meantime, they've said that Nvidia will be providing updated drivers which 'should help with the DX12 crashes.'

A whole host of other concerns are also being looked into, including various gear and weapon issues, talents, and balancing concerns. You can check out the full details in the original post here.

Sarah's earliest gaming memories involve playing Jet Set Willy on the ZX Spectrum at a friend's house. These days, and when not writing guides, most of her spare time goes into MMOs—though she's quite partial to JRPGs too. She has spent much of the last decade playing the likes of Star Wars: The Old Republic, TERA, Final Fantasy 14, and World of Warcraft. Sarah has been writing about games for several years and, before joining PC Gamer, freelanced for the likes of TechRadar, GamingBible, and Rock Paper Shotgun. One of her fondest hopes is to one day play through the ending of Final Fantasy X without breaking down into a sobbing heap. She probably has more wolves in Valheim than you.
