The Division Patch Tomorrow, Free Weekend Starts Thursday

Word on UbiBlog is to expect a new patch for The Division tomorrow to update the open-world shooter to version 1.8. They also announce plans for a free trial weekend for the game that will run from December 7-10. This trailer promotes the free trial, while this one covers the patch, which is also discussed in further detail in this post. Here are all the details:

The Division’s free Update 1.8, codenamed Resistance, launches tomorrow on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, bringing a raft of additions and changes to the battle for post-pandemic Manhattan. The most immediately noticeable is a whole new area of the map, West Side Pier, which also hosts two new game modes: Resistance and Skirmish.

In Resistance, up to four Agents can team up to fight off Manhattan’s enemy factions, who have united to take down The Division with waves of attackers. Using cooperative tactics is strongly encouraged, as is using the resources dropped by enemies to set up defenses or extend the battlefield. The longer you can survive, the greater the rewards you’ll earn. The PVP Skirmish mode, meanwhile, pits two teams of four agents against each other in a competition to get the highest kill count in timed matches. And it’s not enough to just “down” an enemy player – you have to eliminate them to make it count.

Update 1.8 also lets players upgrade their favorite Gear, ratchets up the challenge and rewards of the Underground DLC, and overhauls how players go Rogue in the Dark Zone. Division Agents can also meet up and gear up in a new social space, Camp Clinton. To celebrate Update 1.8’s release, all of The Division’s paid DLC expansions – Underground, Survival, and Last Stand – will be freely accessible to all players from December 5 through December 10. And if you haven’t yet tried The Division, you’ll be able to play the full game and its DLC at no cost during the free weekend, which runs from December 7-10. Additionally, The Division will be on sale for 70% off from December 5-10 on the Ubisoft Store and from December 7-10 on Steam, PS4, and Xbox One. Both free events will be available on all platforms, and any progress you make will carry over if you decide to buy the full game or its DLC afterward.

Looking forward to the new Darkzone 2.0 Love that you cant be attacked if you dont go Rogue. Its about time UBI!!!

Wait, what?

Is this real?

That would completely kill this game for me...

The whole thrill of going into the DZ was that you'd always be looking over your shoulder, that anyone could betray you. It offered a gameplay experience incomparable to almost any other.

If now it's just a high level grinding zone.. then who the fuck cares...
I guess you have never had the unfortunate experience of someone 100+ gear level higher than you destroying you at every turn and there was not a damned thing you could do about it.

Granted I have not played the game since the first content releases and when they did the first segregation of the DZ (0-161 and 162+).

Might actually delete my character and start from scratch this weekend. IIRC the PvE "story" stuff is only like 8 hours of work if that.
