Ubisoft lists all the known bugs in The Division beta


Today is a big day for PC gamers, with Rise of the Tomb Raider finally releasing on the platform and Ubisoft's beta for The Division going live. Taking part in a beta always has it's issues, after all the game is unfinished and has a large number if bugs and glitches that still need to be patched out of the game. 

Instead of leaving gamers to fight against their beta's bugs Ubisoft has decided to compile a list of all known bugs and issues that may affect gamers this weekend, alongside some fixes and workarounds which will allow gamers to spend more time playing the game and less time being affected by the games bugs and other issues. 

The full list from Ubisoft is below, recommending that PC gamers do not use VSync and that players may have issues when capturing game footage on Windows 10. Sadly though the list also confirms that Ubisoft still hasn't gotten past the famous "falling through the map" glitch that has plagued many of their games for years.

These drivers are available right now to download through the Geforce Experience and directly from Nvidia. Right now AMD does not have a driver for these games.
