The Division is set to receive its first big free update on April 12th in the form of Update 1.1. This update, titled Incursion, adds the first of the game’s new Raids, which are tougher missions meant to be tackled by groups of players. Along with the addition of The Division Incursion, Update 1.1 will also add in new gear, weapons, and fix a few bugs along the way. The full patch notes can be found here, or check out some highlights below:
Incursions: Falcon Lost is a new incursion available in the Stuyvesant area. You must be level 30 and have completed the mission “General Assembly” to access this mission. The encounter is balanced for 4 players with high level gear.
New Gear Sets: Gear set equipment can be found by completing the most challenging activities in Manhattan. Collecting and wearing gear sets grant powerful stat bonuses and talents. Gear sets of varying gear scores can be found for many playstyles. Find the set that best suits yours: Tactician’s Authority” – enhances electronics and support capabilities. “Striker’s Battlegear” – provide bonuses for assault capabilities. “Sentry’s Call” – enhances marksman capabilities. “Path of the Nomad” – provides bonuses for lone wanderers.
New Trading System: Items dropped by enemies can be shared with other players. Trade items by dropping them as loot from your inventory, so players in your group can pick them up. You can only share items for during the first 2 hours after you have acquired them. Items can only be shared with players who are currently in your group and who were also in your group when the item was originally dropped.
Dark Zone Supply Drops: Dark Zone Supply Drops are a global event where the Strategic Homeland Defense agency airdrops multiple supply caches to assist Division agents. Supply drops will occur multiple times over the course the day. The supply drops will contain non-contaminated gear of all types that will be ready to use without the need for extraction. These supply drops will be heavily sought after by other agents and enemy factions that roam the Dark Zone, so be ready for resistance.
Bug Fixes: Fixed a bug where sometimes the weapon talents would not activate if the player has the exact stat requirements. Fixed an exploit where players could shoot through corners of covers. Fixed various prop collisions so that players no longer become stuck. Fixed a bug where NPC’s would sometimes not respawn at one of the landmarks in the Dark Zone.
The Division is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
