Ubisoft have recently disclosed the latest details revolving around The Division’s most anticipated 3rd expansion, and of its newest upcoming update 1.6, both of which will be released on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC simultaneously.

While the Last Stand expansion comes with the Season Pass, or as a standalone DLC purchase, the huge future update 1.6 will be free to all players.  The upcoming content will introduce players into a new and exciting way of experiencing the Dark Zone.

During individual session based missions, players are given clear objectives and win conditions, similar to the normal Dark Zone, we’ll see familiar PvE enemies and locations, but with the addition of epic battles between two 4v4 teams of Rogue Agents. The first group to capture and transfer enough data via tactical terminals will be victorious.

As with previous updates, The Division will be further bolstered by the addition of new PvE activities and a brand new Incursion for you and your friends to master. Players will finally see the northern sections of the Dark Zone unlock and become available with DZ 7, 8 and 9, which survival conditions will be at an all-time low with the incredibly bleak and ghostly new environments showcased within.

Coming with Update 1.6 besides a few tweaks and balances will be the expanded game map, special new Contamination events, new exotic named weapons and a special upcoming Legendary mode. For a complete run down of everything to be included with the upcoming content update, check out the official Tom Clancy’s The Division website for details.

Official Press Release

LONDON, UK – January 20th 2017 – Today, Ubisoft announced the latest details of Last Stand, the third expansion for Tom Clancy’s The Division®, as well as of its upcoming Update 1.6.

Both pieces of downloadable content will be available simultaneously and will release on Xbox One, Windows PC and Sony PlayStation®4. The Last Stand expansion will be available as part of the Season Pass, or as a standalone DLC purchase. Update 1.6 will be available for free to all The Division players.

When the situation in the Dark Zone escalated, as the outbreak spiraled out of control and all semblance of civilization collapsed, the Joint Task Force was forced to withdraw from the area, leaving behind important tactical terminals; SHD tech data relays loaded with operational information. Now, Rogue agents are closing in on those relays and if they manage to get their hands on the information, it would be catastrophic for the SHD and the mission to save New York. It will be your job, together with a team of seven other Division agents, to stop that from happening.

In this upcoming expansion, players will be introduced to a new way to experience the Dark Zone, in a new game mode, Last Stand. The session based adversarial mode will feature clear objectives and win conditions while incorporating key elements of the Dark Zone such as PvE enemies and Landmarks. Players will be part of a team of eight Division agents (two groups of four) fighting against a team of eight Rogue enemies (two groups of four) as they attempt to capture the tactical terminals. The first team to transfer enough information through the terminals will win the session. In addition, Last Stand will bring more PvE activities to The Division, including a new incursion.

The northern parts of the Dark Zone will be officially unlocked and players will be able to experience Dark Zone 7, 8, and 9 for the first time in Last Stand. Conditions in these parts of the Dark Zone are especially bleak and will be filled with some of the most eerie environments and challenging NPCs in the game.

Alongside the release of Last Stand, the development team will also release Update 1.6 which will expand the game map, add new special Contamination events, introduce Exotic weapons and add a new Legendary mode.
