The Division developers Massive Entertainment & RedStorm stated in the most recent State of the Game stream that the 1.8 update to The Division would be out sometime this week. With the announcement by Ubisoft last night along with a new trailer, we know that the biggest update in the games history is out today.
The 1.8 update is the best free update to The Division ever, with two brand new new modes — a 4v4 Team Deathmatch PvP mode called Skirmish, and a PvE Horde mode called Resistance — a new open world map expansion called West Side Piers, Rogue 2.0 in the Dark Zone and more.
The full patch notes provide a detailed breakdown of everything coming in the update. Ubisoft also released a new trailer to go along side the new update. That can be seen below;
A few days after the update goes live, a free weekend will commence, giving everyone access to the full game, including the massive (pun intended) update on all platforms. Alongside 1.8, all three DLC’s for The Division will be available for free to all players for a limited time. Players will have the opportunity to play Expansion I: Underground, Expansion II: Survival, and Expansion III: Last Stand for the small cost of £0 until December 10.
