Ubisoft has announced that Update 1.8 “Resistance” for Tom Clancy’s The Division will launch simultaneously on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC platforms tonight from 7pm AEST. Coinciding with the release of Resistance, The Division Free Weekend is coming to all platforms from December 7 to December 10. Not only do all you lucky gamers get this free update, but all Division owners will have free access to all of the Season Pass content from December 5th-10th.
This will be the largest update thus far for Tom Clancy’s The Division and expands the map to a whole new area: West Side Pier. In addition to the variety of open world activities available in this new location, two new game modes have found a home in this new area:
– Resistance (PvE mode) – In Resistance, the different factions are teaming up for the first time to fight against Division agents. Varied enemy NPCs continuously spawn in waves as up to four agents try to survive for as long as they can. Enemies drop resources that can be used to either set up defenses or extend the battlefield, offering more tactical options to the players. Players need to cooperate and find the best strategy to complete as many waves as possible and get greater rewards.
– Skirmish (PvP mode) – In Skirmish, two teams of four players compete against each other to get the highest number of kills before the time expires. Teams earn points each time a downed enemy player is eliminated.
