The Division Update 1.7 PTS-Phase 2 samt aktiver globaler Events startet heute & Patchnotes

PTS-Patchnotes

Ab 16:30 Uhr deutscher Zeit ist die zweite Iteration des PTS im Vorfeld von Update 1.7 für Tom Clancy’s The Division für Spieler auf dem PC verfügbar. Wann genau es auch für die Spieler auf den Konsolen losgeht, steht noch in den Sternen. Dafür zeigt das Changelog, dass nun auch das erste globale Event zur Verfügung steht. Wir stellen die wichtigsten Änderungen im Vergleich zu PTS1 vor.

Die größte Neuerung, die PTS2 mit sich bringt, ist das erste globale Event namens „Ausbruch“. Die Fraktionen sind vom Virus, dem grünen Gift, infiziert und sehr ansteckend. Deshalb liegt es an den Spielern, so viel Schaden wie möglich zu machen und die Bedrohung zu vernichten. Die Belohnungen für den Abschluss der Event-Missionen sind drei Classified Gear-Sets, drei Waffenskins und ein Kleidungs-Set. Spezielle Belobigungen begleiten das Event. Wer sich für die verschlüsselten Behälter interessiert, der findet beim Premiumhändler nun eine entsprechende Tutorial-Mission. Zudem spendierte man den Behältern neue Inhalte.

Das neue Classified Gear, welches eine verbesserte Version der bekannten Ausrüstungssets darstellt und Boni für das Tragen von 5 oder 6 Teilen vergibt, stand rasch nach Beginn der ersten PTS-Phase in der Kritik. Die Boni sind allesamt sehr mächtig und die Community sah schnell die Balance des Spiels in Gefahr. Doch Massive scheint die Situation relativ entspannt anzugehen, wird doch für die zweite PTS-Phase nur der 6er Bonus des Stürmer-Sets angepasst. So steigert sich die Heilung nun nicht mehr pro 1.000 sondern pro 2.000 Ausdauerpunkte. Alle anderen Sets bleiben zunächst unangetastet, was sicherlich daran liegen dürfte, das man zunächst deren Auswirkungen auf dem Konsolen-PTS beobachten möchte.

Davon abgesehen, wurden einige Bugs beseitigt, wie ihr den nachfolgenden, vollständigen Patchnotes entnehmen könnt. Diese listen außerdem bekannte Probleme auf, für die es keine weitere Meldung mehr bedarf. Die Größe des Updates auf PTS2 beträgt via Uplay etwa 42 GB. Es scheint, als müsse der komplette Client neu geladen werden.
