'Tom Clancy's The Division' (ALL) Details the Road Ahead

by Rainier on March 22, 2018 @ 6:48 p.m. PDT

The Division is an online, open-world RPG where you explore the once-familiar streets and landmarks of the Big Apple, now decimated by looting and overrun by clans that will do anything to survive.

A devastating pandemic sweeps through New York City, and one by one, basic services fail. In only days, without food or water, society collapses into chaos. The President invokes Presidential Directive 51, and The Division, an autonomous unit of tactical agents, is activated. Leading seemingly ordinary lives, these agents are trained to operate independently in order to save society. Team up with other players to investigate the source of the virus and reclaim the city from the overwhelming turmoil.

When the lights go out, their mission begins.

Fighting to prevent the fall of society, the agents will find themselves caught up in an epic conspiracy, forced to combat not only the effects of a manmade virus, but also the rising threat of those behind it.

It's not safe, whether you go to Central Park or the subway or the Statue of Liberty. Discover a persistent, online, open-world New York where exploration, combat, and RPG player-progression are essential.

Yes, there is a Division 2 that is currently under development by Massive! The supporting studios that continue to make The Division possible - Red Storm, Reflections, Annecy - will also play roles in The Division 2’s development. More information will be revealed at E3 this year, and we cannot wait to show the world what we have in store!

This does not mean that work on The Division 1 is coming to a halt. We are going to continue supporting the game as players look forward to the following timeline of content:

  • April - Update 1.8.1, which includes the Xbox One X patch and the implementation of Classified drop rate changes discussed on a previous State of the Game. We are also introducing two new Legendary modes alongside a new Global Event: Blackout.
  • May - New Global Event: Onslaught.
  • June - Update 1.8.2, which will introduce two more Legendary mission modes and bring back Global Event: Outbreak. This update also marks the beginning of the brand new Shields monthly feature, in which achievements earned playing The Division will grant special rewards in The Division 2.
  • July - Global Event: Assault, with the continuation of Shields.
  • August - Global Event: Strike, with the continuation of Shields.
  • September - Global Event: Ambush, with the continuation of Shields.

The Update 1.8.1 PTS ends tomorrow, 12:00 UTC. As always, we appreciate everyone testing the new features and reporting your feedback to us!

The Ambush Global Event is live now as the final event in the rotation during our Global Event anniversary month! Players have the opportunity to earn Classified AlphaBridge, FireCrest, Hunter’s Faith, and Tactician’s Authority in Superior GE Caches until Monday, March 26th at 08:00 UTC.

We are happy to announce that after Ambush ends on Monday, March 26th, all of the Global Events will rerun one more time! Each event will run back-to-back for 47 hours with one hour in between, and the finale ends on Tuesday, April 3rd at 08:00 UTC. All players who login during the Global Event week will receive the Celebration emote to close out our March anniversary month!

Global Events are back, and a week-long event will begin on Monday, March 26th. Be sure to log in and get farming for any pieces you missed!

It has been quite the journey so far, and we are just getting started. A huge thank you to our community for the support over the years. Here is to the future of The Division!

In Tom Clancy’s The Division, discover a hostile and dynamic environment where exploration and player progression are essential. Not bound by a specific class, players can change their load-out at any time to fit the needs of the situation, personal playstyle preferences or to complement the choices made by up to three other specialized agents on their team.

Players can upgrade their weapons, gear and skills to fight through a city where danger can come from anywhere, anyone, and at any moment. Revealed at E3, players can enter the most dangerous part of the Big Apple in the Dark Zone, an abandoned quarantine district that provides a suspenseful multiplayer experience with emergent gameplay, unique encounters and legendary loot. Within this zone, players can collaborate with other agents or attack them to steal their hard earned loot.

Key Features:

  • Welcome to a new generation experience in a persistent and dynamic environment, where exploration and player- progression are essential. Teaming up with other Division agents, your mission is to restore order, investigate the source of the virus and to Take Back New York.
  • Enter a universe where the time of day and weather conditions deeply impact your gaming experience. Use the environment to a strategic advantage to dominate fights and ambush your enemies. Utilize your gas mask to provide protection from the virus and upgrade it to enter the most highly contaminated areas.
  • New York City is being overrun by hostile groups that are trying to take advantage of the crisis. One such group is The Cleaners, who travel throughout the city wherever the contagion levels rise. Wearing hazmat suits and wielding flamethrowers, the Cleaners leave nothing but ash in their wake.
  • Trained to act independently from any chain of command, Agents are autonomous and adaptive, working alone or in small groups. They are the last line of defense, activated when all else fails to save what remains.
  • As a member of The Division, harness state-of-the-art technology: both networked and prototyped. Loot fallen enemies and upgrade your gear. Customize your character and your back-pack, your lifeline in the event of a collapse, and communicate with the other agents at all times with your smart watch. Customize and level up your weapons. The choices you make will help forge a recovery or plunge the city deeper into chaos.
  • Choose and upgrade your skills smartly and synergize with your team mates to increase your chances of winning in combat. Use the ECHO skill, a data collection tool that renders moments frozen in time, to learn valuable information about your immediate environment, find hidden loot, and help you to uncover the truth behind the pandemic.
  • Seamlessly team up with friends to take down your enemies and achieve group objectives. Raise the security and morale levels of the surviving citizens of New York to unlock and secure bases of operations. Fight through a city where danger can come from anywhere and anyone, at any moment.
  • On your tablet, join your friends in real-time gameplay. The app gives you a bird’s eye view of the battlefield, the ability to aid your allies in combat by attacking enemies or identifying targets and raining destruction down on your enemies.
  • Powered by the fully new gen Snowdrop engine, Tom Clancy's The Division sets a new bar in video game realism and open- world rendering. Experience a chaotic and devastated New York like you’ve never seen it before.
