The Division 2 PTS servers are now back online after Ubisoft’s attempt to fix error Echo-02.
For those who don’t know, Ubisoft announced it early today that the team will be bringing down public test servers for 1 hour in order to fix the Echo-02 error. Given that The Division 2 PTS servers are now back online, it’s expected that players will no longer face disconnection issues. Moreover, all PTS agents are now deleted so you will have to create a new one. Players who create a new agent will be rewarded with a full power skill in order to test the skill balance changes.
