BEACON TRANSCRIPT – A new update on the game The Division will soon be available and Ubisoft revealed some of the changes that will come with it. It will bring about many changes and a lot of content is added. Also, it will come into effect the same day as The Last Stand DLC, but the update will be free to download.
Among the changes, Ubisoft declared that Update 1.6 will contain an expansion of the game map. The addition of the dark zone layout will bring new leaderboards customized for this layout, but also new events and new named gear that the players can loot. Ubisoft also planned to raise the difficulty levels in the new zones by making the players have encounters with somber and eerie elements.
One new element of the dark zone consists of the presence of different landmarks that gather entire groups of enemies that need to be defeated to get the new gear. After the enemies are defeated, the new gear is transported automatically to your inventory. Moreover, the dark zone has now three new additional areas (Dark Zone 7-9, North of Dark Zone 6, and Midtown East). Also, players can now fast travel among the dark zone checkpoints.
Other novelties in The Division update includes the aforementioned special events. Hourly events will take place in the underground. The players will have to face the contaminated underground where the virus reaches lethal levels and try to preserve their health while destroying the contaminated cleaners.
Ubisoft prepared a surprise for the top scoring players, too. The “Legendary” difficulty level is now available, but only in Times Square, WarrenGate Production Plant, and Napalm Production Site. These missions are now designed to be the hardest in the game. The enemies are now more powerful and smart, use more advanced tactics, and are harder to hit, since they react to all your moves and skills.
As a reward for the bravest ones, the legendary missions offer special weapons and gears. They are available only after the difficult missions are completed, so they might work as a motivation tool for the most daring players.
The Division 1.6 update offers many changes meant to spice up the gameplay and provide a more interesting gaming experience. Make sure you download it and see for yourselves all the surprises hidden in the game.
