The Division Incursions Update is Out

Last week we were told what can be expected from the first content update for The Division and now it is finally here. New mission (Incursion), new daily and weekly assignments, gear sets and trading as well as Dark Zone supply drops are already waiting for you as soon as you update the game.

I still reserve my judgement about the increased grindability but new content is always an appreciated thing. For a better idea on what’s waiting for you on the other side, watch the trailer and read the press release as well as check out our previous post for all the gory details.


Official Press Release

LONDON, UK April 12, 2016 — Today, Ubisoft® announced that the first content update for Tom Clancy’s The Division™ is now available for all players on Xbox One, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC. As part of the post-launch plan to keep players entertained after the main story arc is completed, Incursions is the first of two free updates. Incursions is comprised of new activities, features and items that continue to build upon the gameplay experience.

NEW ACTIVITIES

  • New Incursion – Falcon Lost: Developed specifically for squad play, players team up with the Joint Task Force in an epic fight against the Last Man Battalion and their new deadly weapon.
  • Dark Zone Supply Drops: Players need to be on the lookout for air supply drops in the Dark Zone from Division command. These global events provide non-contaminated gear that are ready to use and don’t require extraction.
  • Assignments: Tackled alone or with other agents, these lucrative timed assignments will offer players additional rewards.

NEW FEATURES

  • Trading: As one of the community’s most-wanted features, loot trading has been added to allow players to share items within the same group by simply dropping them from their inventory.
  • Gear Score: Now players can size up fellow agents and gauge the power of items by comparing gear scores.

NEW ITEMS

  • Gear Sets: By completing challenging activities in Manhattan, players can collect and wear new gear sets to unlock powerful bonuses and stats. Find the set that best suits your playstyle:

–       Tactician’s Authority – Enhances electronics and support capabilities.

–       Striker’s Battlegear – Provides bonuses for assault capabilities.

–       Sentry’s Call – Enhances marksman capabilities.

–       Path of the Nomad – Provides bonuses for lone wanderers.

In addition, today marks the debut of Operation ISAC, the in-game video series that delivers weekly assignment to players every Tuesday at 11am UK time. Each episode will offer missions and intel needed to help players take back New York.

As the industry’s best-selling new game franchise to date, Tom Clancy’s The Division takes place weeks after a devastating pandemic sweeps through New York City on Black Friday. One by one, basic services fail and in only days, without food or water, society collapses into chaos. The Division, an autonomous unit of tactical agents leading seemingly ordinary lives among us, is activated to save society. Team up with other players to investigate the source of the virus, protect civilians from dangerous factions, and reclaim the city from the overwhelming turmoil.
