The Division Public Test Server was delayed recently so that Ubisoft could round it out better with the Update 1.4. Now, it has a release date.
The news comes via a Reddit thread that says that the Public Test Server will be going live this Thursday for Elite Task Force members, and then Monday for everyone else. It will feature the following:
1st Step (Week 1): You will be given a ‘fresh level 30’ character with only purples and should test the leveling up from GS0-160 in World Tier 1 (WT1)
2nd Step (Week 2): You can do 1.4 farming in all World Tiers with your own character
3rd Step (date unknown): They ‘give’ you free items (weapons + gear sets) to experiment with min/maxing gear sets in 1.4.
The server is only making its way to PC, so console gamers, unfortunately, will not be able to play around with it.
