Ubisoft will be opening up another PTS, or Public Test Server, ahead of update 1.5. This will be to test Enemy Armor Damage in PvP.
The news was announced during this morning’s State of the Game, where the team announced that they would be running the server to test and ensure that everything was working properly ahead of update 1.5.
Mainly, they want to ensure that it will work well before the release of Survival, ensuring that player will enjoy it before they release the game’s next expansion.
Survival was initially supposed to launch alongside update 1.4, but was postponed so that Ubisoft could fix more issues in the game and focus more on update 1.4.
This pushes the third expansion, Last Stand, to early next year, and Survival will be released this winter.
