The Public Test server for Episode 1 is available now on Uplay PC, and we are conducting the testing a bit differently this time around! In order to test all of the content coming in the next update, specific features will be released in various phases over the next couple of weeks. Participating players will also receive a survey after each testing phase to drive as much feedback as possible to the development team. We want to ensure each phase receives targeted feedback from the community, and so we encourage everyone to share their thoughts with us!
Here's what you can expect:
- July 1st—PTS is live. Manning National Zoo and Camp White Oak story missions will be available.
- July 3rd—Discovery Mode difficulty for the Washington National Airport raid. Matchmaking will be available for this difficulty. The Discovery difficulty level of the Raid will not drop the Eagle Bearer. Final loot rewards will be revealed closer to the release of Episode 1.
- July 5th—The first location of an Expedition site will be available. On July 6th, the second location of the same site will open for players. The third location opens on July 7th, completing the full Expedition site. You can return to previous locations as new ones are opened.
- July 8th—This phase will focus on gear balancing, skill build viability, and the introduction of two new exotics: the Diamondback Rifle and BTSU Datagloves.
- July 10th—PTS ends.
Note that the PTS schedule is tentative and subject to change. If you want to learn more about what's coming with Episode 1, check out the patch notes.
As a reminder, Episode 1 is still very much in active development and additional bug fixes and balancing changes will be made prior to its release. Your feedback is invaluable to us and we want to remind you that the PTS Forums are also available for sharing your thoughts on new features, balancing changes and to report any bugs you might encounter.
We hope to see you on the PTS!
