Tom Clancy's The Division


 

Ubisoft has announced that The Division’s 1.7 update will go live across all platforms on August 15th, 2017.

The update’s main new feature is the Global Events system, which will offer players a new event each month with new gear and items to earn. During an event, a global modifier will be in place that will affect all PvE content, such as “Rotten to the Core,” during which enemies killed with a headshot will cause their heads to explode causing bleed damage to nearby enemies. In addition to this global modifier, players will be able to add another modifier to select activities that will increase the difficulty, but offer greater rewards.

Completing activities during Global Events will reward players with Global Events Tokens that can be exchanged at a new vendor in the Base of Operations for caches and exclusive vanity items.

As well as Global Events, the update also adds new Classified Gear Sets, which are stronger, more powerful versions of the currently available Gear Sets, and Patches/Commendations, a new system that will reward players for completing certain achievements.

Finally, update 1.7 sees the introduction of Encrypted Caches, boxes that are obtained from the Premium Vendor and contain unique appearance items, emotes and skins. Cipher Keys are needed to open Encrypted Caches, which can either be obtained with real money or by finding 10 key fragments in the game world.

The Division is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
