The Division Getting a Huge Free Update: Adds New Modes and Map Area

Ubisoft tweet­ed today that “Resis­tance” update 1.8 will be a rather large one for all plat­forms and actu­al­ly con­tain new area, as well as new game modes. This is a free update, so no one needs to wor­ry about a pur­chase to see the new area or play the new modes.

It has been about a year and half since the launch of The Divi­sion and it des­per­ate­ly need­ed new area to be opened. Tech­ni­cal­ly, it gave new social spaces and playable areas in their DLC, but it was only through pur­chase that you could see any­thing new.

The addi­tion to the orig­i­nal map is a tad late, but will still prob­a­bly be a wel­come sight to the play­ers. The sec­tion of the map that will open is the West Side Pier, which spreads across two zones. It also fea­tures Camp Clin­ton, a brand new social space.

The two new modes: Resis­tance PvE and Skir­mish PvP modes, both which can be found in the new sec­tion of the map. In Resis­tance PvE, up to four Agents take con waves of ene­mies from all fac­tions. Sur­vive to a chance at a reward.

Skir­mish PvP makes two teams of four play­ers against each each oth­er, shoot it out. Down­ing an oppo­nent is not enough to get a point, you have to com­plete­ly elim­i­nate that play­er. Team that reach­es the high­est score first, wins.
