If you haven’t been to Ubisoft‘s wartorn New York in a while, a lot has changed. Since its release, Ubisoft has dedicated several updates to Tom Clancy’s The Division with intent to keep the game fresh. Today’s announcement of yet another update and a third DLC, The Last Stand, will look to upgrade and unlock new areas within the Dark Zone.
Last Stand introduces players to a new way of experiencing the Dark Zone through a session-based adversarial game mode featuring clear objectives and win conditions while incorporating key elements of the Dark Zone such as PvE enemies and landmarks. Players will be on a team of eight Division agents fighting against a team of either Rogue agents as they attempt to capture the tactical terminals. Last Stand will also include a new incursion, Stolen Signal.
The free Update 1.6 will release alongside Last Stand and provides robust, new content for existing players including an expanded Dark Zone map with three new areas unlocked, new Contamination events that take place in an underground location in the Dark Zone, new exotic weapons and landmarks, Dark Zone leaderboards, and the new Legendary mode which provides an increased challenge for the top players of The Division.
In addition to these updates, Ubisoft also announced a free trial available to those haven’t played The Division yet. The free trial will run until the gamer hits one of two points, (A) their character hits Level 8, (B) they’ve played for 6 hours. At the end of either, the trial will stop and give the option to purchase the full game, with all progress transferring over from the trial.
If you haven’t been to New York lately, Ubisoft is hoping this will bring you back.
