In an effort to gather more feedback for Tom Clancy’s: The Division, Ubisoft is currently sending out customer satisfaction surveys to those who have tried the game. While utilizing community surveys is a fairly common practice used by video game publishers, they can often provide insight on what might be in store in the future.
In addition to collecting details on overall player satisfaction regarding several different aspects of The Division, Ubisoft also asked a few questions about potential new content that could be added to the game down the line. Most notably, the publisher is trying to find out if players would like to see The Division branch out to include new cities other than just New York with possible upcoming expansions.
Seemingly taking inspiration from Ubisoft’s own Assassin’s Creed franchise, the publisher is also interested in gauging fans’ interest in being able to play through different time periods as well, Considering how much a feature like this would change Tom Clancy’s: The Division, it is important to note that all of the survey topics cover hypothetical features rather than content that is officially planned.
The survey is now being sent out to emails associated with U-Play accounts that have played The Division. Ubisoft estimates that completing the series of questions will take approximately 10 minutes as they hope to find which areas of the game that players are satisfied with and which ones need improvement.
Participants are asked to give their thoughts on loot drops and overall difficulty as well as the title’s competitive Dark Zone map. Those willing to provide additional feedback can also opt to take part in a longer survey where they can provide more essay responses.
The possibility of allowing players to go to other locations and time periods in The Division is not the only hint at potential new content provided by the survey. Ubisoft also wants to know how fans would respond to smaller features such as a gambling system that would reward lucky winners with new equipment.
This week’s satisfaction survey for Tom Clancy’s: The Division is just the latest sign that Ubisoft and developer Massive Entertainment are continually striving to make improvements to the MMO shooter. As an online game, the team must constantly evaluate all kinds of balance issues that can arise as the game evolves. With that in mind, it is good to see that community feedback will play a role in helping decide such changes as the game grows.
While the developer moves forward with balance tweaks, they are also working to rid the game of bugs. As the Inquisitr reported earlier this week, Massive Entertainment announced that they will be giving out 150 Phoenix Credits to players across all platforms this weekend due to recent issues which briefly disabled daily missions prior to The Division‘s most recent title update. The upcoming gift of Phoenix Credits was revealed during Massive’s weekly State of the Game livestream, which the developer broadcasts during scheduled maintenance periods.
Offering additional compensation to those affected by the recent crafted backpack bug, which prevented some users from being able to load their character, the developer will also soon hand out 500 more Phoenix Credits to anyone who ran into the issue.
Following the launch of The Division‘s Incursion mode in a free update last week, Ubisoft also posted a changelog on their official forums detailing several fixes that were pushed live today after the game was brought down for an emergency maintenance. The biggest bug fix removed the ability for players to incorrectly apply damage to the Falcon Lost Incursion’s APC boss. The patch now made it so the tank can only be damaged by C4 explosives as intended.
