Among the top additions is the new West Side Piers PvE map expansion, featuring new story content and side missions, along with a new social space called Camp Clinton. 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.
For more on The Division and Update 1.8 you can have a read of this, or watch the trailer below. The update will be available on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 and it introduces a new area to players. Everybody who is interested will be able to give it a try, because Ubisoft are also running a free weekend for the game from 7 December.
"Resistance" is a PvE horde-type mode, where all the opposing factions have joined together in an effort to take down Division agents. The latter is a wave-based survival mode where players must hold out against continuous AI-controlled enemy assaults. Players need to cooperate and find the best strategy to complete as many waves as possible and get greater rewards.
With Tom Clancy's The Division set to receive a free content update tomorrow, December 5, the Xbox team has just announced that the game will be free to play with Xbox Live Gold starting December 6 at 11:01 p.m. PST.
With update 1.8 arriving on December 5, a whole new area of the city will be opened up for exploration. From the launch of patch 1.8 through the end of the free weekend, all players will also have access to the game's first three DLC expansions for free.
As you would expect, any progress made will carry over to the full game if purchased.
