The Division’s April Update Adds First Raid, Dark Zone Supply Drops, and More

By | 7 months ago 

Ubisoft finally details Incursions, The Division‘s version of raids, and also reveals that the game’s April update will add Supply Drops to the Dark Zone.

Gamers that have already conquered Tom Clancy’s The Division and have reached the game’s level cap will soon have a lot more content to keep them busy. That’s because Ubisoft has finally detailed The Division‘s big April 12th update, which will be adding a significant amount of content to the game.

First and foremost, The Division‘s update will add the game’s first raid to the experience. In The Division, raids are referred to as Incursions (putting to rest previous speculation that Incursions would be renamed to Operations), and the game’s first Incursion will be called Falcon Lost.

Falcon Lost will have players venturing into New York’s sewers in order to infiltrate a water treatment facility, where they will find a dangerous group of enemies called the Last Man Battalion. The Falcon Lost Incursion will sport two distinct difficulty modes, and will also support matchmaking, so those without enough real life buddies can stand a better chance when taking on Falcon Lost’s higher difficulty level.

To give players a better idea of if they’re properly equipped to tackle the challenges that Falcon Lost will bring to the table, the update will also add gear level to The Division. This is a system similar to “light level” in Destiny, and essentially allows for max level players to continue improving their character’s stats in a meaningful way beyond the level cap.

While the Falcon Lost raid is definitely the main attraction when it comes to The Division‘s major April update, the Dark Zone will also be given some love come April 12th. It is then that Supply Drops will be added to the Dark Zone, which will drop in a random location every hour. Groups will have to race to the Supply Drops, and unlike other items collected in the Dark Zone, Supply Drops do not have to be extracted.

The Division‘s April 12th update will also be adding item trading to the game, along with daily and weekly challenges. The latter will ensure that players will constantly have some activities to completely every day they play The Division, and should help to keep high-level players engaged with the game.

April’s sizable update for The Division will be free and will release on all platforms at once. It seems to be adding a significant amount of content to the game, and should keep players plenty busy while they wait for The Division‘s first paid expansion to release later this year.

Tom Clancy’s The Division is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The game’s Incursions update will releases to the masses on April 12th.
