The Division beta begins at the end of this week, and Ubisoft has detailed the patch notes for the changes and fixes that will occur when it starts.

Most significantly, a new patch will fix north of 10,000 bugs that users discovered during last month’s alpha. The notes list some of the bugs as mission objectives not completing correctly, character loading getting stuck at 95% and broken textures.

Other patch notes include further balancing of weapons, additional maps and improved UI. See the full patch notes of improvements for The Division beta below.
