Update:

Listed as version 1.06, today’s The Division update on PS4 is reportedly a 10.1GB download.

You can also now grab the Ubisoft 30th anniversary outfits in your Ubisoft Club rewards.

Original Story:

Before The Division update 1.3 hits PlayStation 4 today, July 5, Ubisoft will be taking the game’s servers offline for three hours of maintenance on all platforms.

Beginning at 12am PT/3am ET/9am CEST, here’s what’s happening during the server maintenance:

  • Deployment of Content Update 1.3 for all PlayStation 4 players. This does not enable the content of Expansion I: Underground which is scheduled for release on August 2nd.
  • Fixed a bug where High Value Target NPCs were capped at level 30 maximum. This will also fix the issue where they were not dropping any Target Intel.
  • Fixed a bug where players that died after defeating the final encounter would be able to repeat it and gain loots again.
  • Fixed instances of server instability that could lead to players being disconnected from the game.

You can see the full list of patch notes for Update 1.3 over here. Here’s some of the highlights:

New Incursion: Dragon’s Nest

  • Travel to Hell’s Kitchen and investigate rumors of a new Cleaner weapon that can wreak havoc throughout Manhattan.
  • You must be level 30 and have completed the mission “General Assembly” to access the incursion.
