Ubisoft is promising some changes are coming along the way for Tom Clancy's The Division. One of these is in the form of a Public Test Server. The news was announced by Ubisoft today in an official blog post
. You can read the full statement by Ubisoft below.
With this new Public Test Server, players will get access to features not yet available in the public game, and it will be available for the game on Windows PC but not the console versions.
This new approach to The Division is in response to feedback from the upcoming major 1.4 patch for the game, which was announced last week. The hope here seems to be that users will be able to submit feedback before updates officially become available to all gamers.
Last week, we announced that Update 1.4 will focus entirely on improving the core gameplay experience, and that we want you to be part of it. Since then, we kick started our Agent Intel forum section to gather your feedback on several topics, opened registration to the Elite Task Force, and we’ve seen a lot of very constructive feedback across the forums, Reddit, YouTube and Twitch. The enthusiasm that you have shown to help us make the game better is incredible and only proves that this is an important step in the right direction!
As many pointed out after we announced Update 1.4, a great way to involve you would be to let you try the update before its release. Good news! We are thrilled to confirm that we will be opening a Public Test Server on PC for The Division in the near future.
More details will follow in the coming days, but we wanted to break the news as soon as possible so you can have full visibility on the next steps we are implementing to improve the game.
Stay tuned for more!

It should be interesting to see how this approach pans out, and it if will improve the overall experience for the game. The Division is available now for Windows PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
