Tom Clancy's The Division Receiving Update 1.8 Tomorrow; Play for Free this Weekend
Ubisoft announced today that they will be releasing Update 1.8 for Tom Clancy’s The Division tomorrow, December 5, on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. This update adds a whole new area to the map in addition to adding two new modes, and players will be able to try it all out for free this weekend.
This free weekend will run from December 7 to December 10. During it, players will be able to try out the full game and all of its DLC for free. Players who already own Tom Clancy’s The Division will be able to try out the DLC for free from December 5 to December 10. Tom Clancy’s The Division will also be available at a 70% discounted price during this time on all platforms, and players will be able to carry over all of their progress if they decide to purchase the full game.
Tom Clancy’s The Division Update 1.8 has been code-named Resistance by the developers, with the new area of the map being West Side Pier. The two new modes are named Resistance and Skirmish. Resistance is a horde-like mode where four players can take down waves of enemy factions from Manhatten, with players receiving different rewards depending on how long they are able to survive for.
Meanwhile, Skirmish is a PvP mode where two teams of four fight to get the highest kill count within a time limit, with special elimination finisher being added so players can confirm their kills. In addition, this update lets players upgrade their gear, tweaks the difficulty of the Underground DLC, and reworks how going Rogue in the Dark Zone works.
