Tom Clancy’s The Division, the game developed by Ubisoft Massive released last year on PC and consoles, is soon going to receive its biggest update to date.
Today, Ubisoft revealed some new details on The Division 1.8 update, which will be named Resistance. Among the new features introduced by the update will be a new area called West Side Pier and two new modes.
West Side Pier is a completely new area spread across two new zones and accessible for all players. Defeated factions were last seen converging towards the sector and seem to have started working together for the first time. The Division must investigate the area to confirm that factions are indeed forging an alliance and determine the reason for their sudden interest in this location. In addition to the variety of open world activities available across the whole map, West Side Pier will be 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.
Additionally, the Resistance update will include improvements to the Underground DLC, a revamp of the rogue mechanics and more.
Update 1.8 “Resistance” will include improvements to the Underground DLC, a revamp of the rogue mechanics, as well as an optimisation of the gear system, letting players improve the stats of their favourite equipment.
A new trailer showcasing the update, which will release this Autumn, has also been released. You can find it below.
