The Division’s 1.2 Conflict Update Now Available

Posted on 24 May 2016 by

Today Ubisoft released their second free content update, Conflict, for Tom Clancy’s The Division to all players on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Introducing the newest Incursion Clear Sky, Search and Destroy missions, High Value Targets and new high-end weapons with four unique gear sets. Also receiving a much needed update is The Dark Zone, with Sealed Caches, new ISAC Assignments, a Stash Box at checkpoints (finally) and lastly, the exciting Extraction Hijacking ability, all of which are much welcomed additions to the game.

I had the chance to jump in and check out the newest content myself and was having a blast. Clear Sky Incursion, despite only having Hard Mode available at the time, proved to be very challenging. Running around collecting Intel and hunted down some High Value Target’s with a few mates, receiving a nice pair of 240 gear scored “Lone Star” set pieces as reward felt great. I’m excited to dive back in later to give the newest Dark Zone bracket (200+) a go, perhaps I’ll see you there… at the end of my scope, good luck Agents!

Be sure to check out the patch notes for a more in depth look at all the newest content, bug fixes and game changes included with today’s update.

Official Press Release

LONDON, UK — May 24, 2016 — Today, Ubisoft® announced that the second 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. Conflict is part of the post-launch plan aimed at keeping the experience fresh for players by introducing new ongoing content. This second free update offers a new incursion, High Value Targets, and features to make the journey through mid-crisis New York even more challenging and intense.


  • New Incursion “Clear Sky”: This new incursion takes players to Columbus Circle area, where they face an overwhelming force of Rikers who are now in full control of the Manhattan airspace. Players need to team up to take back the area and secure the supply route.
  • Search and Destroy Missions: Once all side missions and encounters have been completed in a named zone, Search and Destroy missions lead players to groups of enemies located in the open-world.
  • High Value Targets: After completing Search and Destroy missions, players are granted with valuable intel to hunt down new enemy leaders who have appeared all over Manhattan.


  • Clear Sky introduces new top-of-the-line gear sets. Players will be able to try out these new powerful sets to match their gameplay style:

–      Final Measure – Defensive set, enables players to defuse hostile grenades.

–      Hunter’s Faith – Powerful long range set, deals severe damages to enemies.

–      Lone Star – Damage per second gear set, increases the ammo capacity.

–      Predator’s Mark – Support set, enables players to fight enemies at range and increases damage.


  • Hijack Extractions: Now players have the ability to interrupt an extraction by cutting the rope and attempt to acquire the fallen loot bags. But this is not without risk, as this action will instantly mark them as Rogue.
  • Sealed Cache: Sealed Caches can now be dropped by named enemies in the Dark Zone. The content of these caches remains mysterious until they are extracted and can include gear, Division Tech, and Dark Zone funds.
  • Player Stashes: Player stashes are now available in every Dark Zone checkpoint.
  • ISAC Assignments: These weekly assignments are now included in the map overview. Also with this update, weekly exclusive rewards will be introduced as well as free vanity items

As one of the industry’s best-selling new game franchises to date, with a current total of 9.5 million registered users, 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.
