There aren't many fixes in today's update, but the ones concerning Skills have been troublesome for players since day one. Skills are especially critical to the endgame when dealing with swarms of high-level enemies, so it can be supremely frustrating when a powerful ability doesn't trigger at the proper time. On the UI side, flickering, texture pop-in and repeat animations have been annoying to endure as well. There's no official word on if update 1.04 includes tweaks related to software crashes or sound glitches, but we hope those are also being worked on as well.

Today's update for The Division 2 arrives just a few hours after Wednesday's State of the Game stream. During the short presentation, developers unveiled a preliminary roadmap for upcoming DLC drops. Most critically, we now know the Tidal Basin Stronghold and World Tier 5 will be live for all players April 5.

The Division 2 is available on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. The 1.04 update is live on all platforms.
