On January 1st, 2013, a three-man team started a project named Project Phoenix.

The Division Conflict Update Now Available

May 24, 2016 By: Sniper Category: Whats Up?

image

The second free update for The Division, Conflict, is available now for all players on Xbox One, PS4, and PC. Introducing a new Incursion, new endgame challenges and four new gear sets for high-level players, it also brings significant changes to the Dark Zone, along with bug fixes and gameplay tweaks.

The biggest addition is Clear Sky, a new Incursion that follows the events of the previous Incursion, Falcon Lost. This time, Division Agents are tasked with clearing out an anti-aircraft site in Columbus Circle, which is being used by the Rikers to claim Manhattan’s supply drops. Additionally, players who clear out all the Encounters and side missions in an area can now undertake Search and Destroy missions. Completing those then gives you the chance to hunt High-Value Targets, tough enemy leaders who now appear throughout the city. Even Operation ISAC challenges will get more visibility, as they now yield exclusive rewards and are integrated into the map screen.

Those who regularly venture into the Dark Zone will find that named enemies now drop Sealed Caches, which yield gear, Division Tech, and Dark Zone currency when extracted. Just be extra-careful when you’re extracting, because rival Agents can now cut the rope once it’s been loaded up, instantly marking themselves as Rogues as soon as they start in.

Finally, four new gear sets have been added, granting players powerful new buffs and rewarding those who wear full sets with abilities that include automatic reloading when weapons are holstered, the ability to defuse and re-use enemy grenades, and more. For the full list of changes, check out the latest update to The Division’s official site, and for more on The Division, check out our previous coverage:
