While we just got a The Division update from Ubisoft a few weeks ago, the publisher is already hard at work on the next content update for the online action game. In a blog post on the shooter’s official site, Ubisoft has detailed what fans can expect from the next The Division upcoming patch.
Called, "Resistance," update 1.8 will add two new game modes, a new zone to play in and more. There’s a new reveal trailer for it below as well with the upcoming additions.
WEST SIDE PIERS
In Update 1.8, we will be expanding the Manhattan map with a brand new playable zone – the West Side Piers. In the middle of this area stands the mighty Intrepid, the famous aircraft carrier. Here the factions have been gathering, and the new zone will introduce a range of new activities for you to take part in.
In the Resistance game mode, you and other agents group up to take on waves of increasingly powerful enemies in an attempt to stem the tide of the now allied factions.
With Update 1.8, we’re also introducing a brand new PvP mode, where you fight other agents in intense 4 versus 4 death match battles. The matches take place in brand new arenas, specifically built for this game mode.
We hope you are as excited for Update 1.8 as we are. We will have much more information about the additions coming in the update soon, but until then – see you in Manhattan!
All of these will be added for free, and will be tested in the PTR (Public Test Server) before it rolls out in the future.
