The highly anticipated Tom Clancy's The Division Public Test Server has finally arrived. As iterated by developer Massive in the past, this will give players access to any forthcoming updates and/or contents, among others. And as a result, they will be able to know which ones are to be transitioned to the official server via update 1.4. For PC players looking to be part of it, here's how big it's going to be.
As stated in the official Steam Community site of Tom Clancy's The Division, the Public Test Server will be downloaded as a separate client. Its size will be around 45 GB, overwriting the existing client of players. This is simply because it will be saved on a new folder name on their desktops.
Given its huge size, it's safe to say that the Tom Clancy's The Division PTS will offer a hefty experience. After all, it's meant to help develop update 1.4 -- a patch expected to bring the game back to its former glory. It should be noted, however, that the PTS is only made available to PC players.
Massive also explained that the first few days will mainly cover the progression between the new World Tiers in Tom Clancy's The Division. And because of this, players' characters won't be able to find their way from the official server to the Public Test Server. Nevertheless, they'll be able to create a new level 30 characters without sweat.
The aforementioned Tom Clancy's The Division server, once downloaded, can be found in My Games on Uplay. As for those who want to access it via Steam, it's listed under Library.
The upcoming Tom Clancy's The Division update 1.4 is expected to arrive anytime in October, though the exact date hasn't been released. Through the PTS, developers will have the chance to gather feedback and/or recommendations from the community. For instance, they'll be able to learn which feature is valuable and/or which bug needs fixing.
