Yet another free update is coming to Ubisoft game Tom Clancy’s: The Division. Update 1.8 “Resistance” is set to be released simultaneously on all platforms sometime this fall. It will be the largest update for the game yet, including two new game modes and expanding the current map to include the West Side Pier.
West Side Pier is an all-new area that will be spread across two new zones and available for all players to explore immediately. Defeated factions from the game prior to the update seem to have retreated here and appear to be working together. As part of the Division, you must investigate the area to confirm the two factions are forging an alliance and find out why they are interested in this location. West Side Pier is also home to two new game modes:
- Resistance (PvE mode) – In Resistance, the different factions are teaming up for the first time to fight against Division agents. Varied enemy NPCs continuously spawn in waves as up to four agents try to survive for as long as they can and earn rewards.
- Skirmish (PvP mode) – In Skirmish, two teams of four players compete against each other to get the highest number of kills before the time expires. Teams earn points each time a downed enemy player is eliminated.
Agents will also have access to a new social hub, Camp Clinton, where they will be able to group up and change out gear before heading out to fight the good fight. Update 1.8 “Resistance” will include some improvements to the Underground DLC, a revamp of the rogue mechanics, as well as an “optimization of the gear system” which will let players improve the stats of their favorite equipment.
Update 1.8 “Resistance” is the second of two substantial free updates that were planned for Year 2 of the game, and Tom Clancy’s: The Division will continue to add content in the months to come.
