The Division 1.8 Summary
The Division is getting a new zone in 1.8,and not just another expansion of the Dark Zone. It's the West Side Pier, which appears toinclude a stranded aircraft carrier as a playable space, and introduces new activities whereall the different factions of enemies are working together for the first time ever. The main draw will be this zone and a newCamp Clinton social space which will feature everything you need to kick off your gameplaysessions, so it's basically identical to the terminal. The game will feature a system called Alertsthat will let you know where something's spawning on the zone. The AI will be dynamic and everytime you playit, it will be supposedly different. Developers also confirmed that the narrativeof the game will continue and we will learn more of the story by playing the west sidemissions. With the patch they are also introducing 2new gameplay modes. One for PVE and one for PVP.
The new PvE mode is called Resistance. A wave based survival mode where players willtake on enemies from all factions. Skirmish is the new PVP mode and it's literallyjust team deathmatch, something The Division players have been clamoring for since launchtwo years ago.
There are also changes coming to the Undergroundmissions, if you actually take a look at the commendations tab, it appears Undergroundmissions will now be endless and you can do as many phases as you want before you quit,just like the rifts in Diablo 3,and we've seen the divison copy diablo 3 before manytimes and so far it's been quite beneficial for the game.There are also changes to howgoing Rogue works in the Dark Zone, and a new type of gear modification that lets youimprove the stats of your favorite items, whatever that means. But it all sounds good. I mean, this seems like a pretty fantasticaddition to the game, even if we're not getting the huge story/land mass expansions playerswere hoping for from the start.
There's no release date set yet, but therewill be a PTS for 1.8 coming soon for sure. Until then, thanks for watching and see youaround.
