The Division's Big “Resistance” Update Hits Tomorrow, Will Be Followed by a Free Weekend

Resistance will pit Division agents against an unprecedented alliance of enemy factions, challenging players to fight off waves of powerful foes and formidable bosses. The West Side Pier is an industrial port in the northwest corner of the map dominated by a massive aircraft carrier, and it will play host to two new game modes.

The publisher has announced The Division's big "Resistance" update will launch tomorrow (December 5). There's a lot to like in Resistance including a new area of the map, new PVP and PVE game modes, alongside tweaks and bug fixes.

To mark the occasion, Ubisoft are making the game free to play for Xbox Live Gold members from this Wednesday through to Sunday December 10, 2017. All progress from the free weekend will carry over to the full game if players purchase it.

The Division released on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in March 2016.

Skirmish (PvP mode) - In Skirmish, two teams of four compete against each other to get the highest number of kills before the time expires. During it, players will be able to try out the full game and all of its DLC for free.

The Underground expansion has also undergone some changes, adding new Directives, Hunter enemies (who can drop exotic loot), and weekly assignments that offer even more loot. The more waves you complete, the better rewards you get. And it's not enough to just "down" an enemy player - you have to eliminate them to make it count.

The two new game modes that arrive with the Resistance update is also situated in this new region, them being Skirmish and Resistance.

Additionally, "Resistance", Update 1.8 will include a new social hub, improvements to the Underground DLC, a revamp of the rogue mechanics, as well as an optimisation of the gear system letting players improve the stats of their favourite equipment.
