Ubisoft said last week how the 1.8 update towards the Division would be out sometime this week. Now it’s this week, and Ubisoft states that it will eventually in truth be out tomorrow, which a free weekend will establish a short time later.
The 1.8 update is definitely the biggest free update to The Division yet, with two new modes—a 4v4 Team Deathmatch mode called Skirmish, and also a PvE Horde mode called Resistance—a brand new PvE map expansion called West Side Piers, Rogue 2.0 during the night Zone, the latest movement system, and much more. The whole patch notes offer a detailed guide to what’s waiting, or you can crash-course your path through it using this video.
To mark the production on the update, The Division Community Team might be holding a 24-hour launch stream on Twitch, beginning at 3:30 am PT/6:30 am ET on December 5 and running before same time on December 6. Everyone who watches not less than 20 mins on the stream, possesses linked their Uplay and Twitch accounts, will automatically unlock three skins: Fire Brigade for that Cleaners, Unit 08 during the last Man Battalion, and Benjamins for Rikers. Precisely linking checking account can be had here.
Two days right after the update goes live, an absolutely free weekend will get underway, giving everyone accessibility to the full game on all platforms. The free-for-all window will open at 10 am PT/1 pm ET on December 7, and shut at 1 pm PT/4 pm ET on December 10. That could also apparently be a fine time to get it: It hasn’t happened yet but The Division will apparently be available for sale for as many as 70 percent off while in the freebie. So don’t think of buying it now!
