The Division Update 1.8 Marks Biggest Free Content Update Since Game’s Launch; Adds Two New Modes

The Division Update 1.8 adds two new game modes, a new region and more.

A little over two weeks after the previous 1.7 update, Tom Clancy’s The Division receives its biggest free content update.

Update 1.8, aka Resistance, brings with it two new game modes, one for offline and another for PvP, as well as a completely new area called West Side Pier. Not only that, it also adds the Camp Clinton region to the game, which acts as a social hub for players to meet, change their loadouts and gear before going back to the battlefield.

West Side Pier is a completely new area spread across two new zones and accessible for all players. Defeated factions were last seen converging towards the sector and seem to have started working together for the first time. The Division must investigate the area to confirm that factions are indeed forging an alliance and determine the reason of their sudden interest in this location.

In addition to the variety of open world activities available across the whole map, West Side Pier will be home to two new game modes:

  • Resistance (PvE mode) – In Resistance, the different factions are teaming up for the first time to fight against Division agents. Varied enemy NPCs continuously spawn in waves as up to four agents try to survive for as long as they can and earn rewards.
  • Skirmish (PvP mode) – In Skirmish, two teams of four players compete against each other to get the highest number of kills before the time expires. Teams earn points each time a downed enemy player is eliminated.#
  • West Side Piers

    Update 1.8, we will be expanding the Manhattan map with a brand new playable zone – the West Side Piers. In the middle of this area stands the mighty Intrepid, the famous aircraft carrier. Here the factions have been gathering, and the new zone will introduce a range of new activities for you to take part in.
