The Division 2 servers are currently offline for maintenance, in preparation of the launch of the game’s latest patch.

The Division 2 servers will be offline for three hours, due to be back online on all platforms at 4:30am PT, 7:30am ET, 11:30am UK.

Today’s update is relatively important, bringing a few quick fixes for issues reported since launch. Next week’s update will be the first to add new content, such as the Tidal Basin, and World Tier 5.

As for today’s patch, the biggest included change is a fix for the scaling problem in co-op. Massive previously adjusted the damage low-level players received when joining a game with a high-level player, and today’s update improves this further by adjusting health scaling.

The patch has also lessened the flickering, and distortion effects when opening menus. Any remaining problems related to the bugged skill cooldowns should now also be fixed, though most of these were addressed last week.
