Agents, incoming State of the Game transmission:

During the last State of the Game (https://tomclancy-thedivision.ubisoft.com/game/en-gb/news/detail.aspx?c=tcm:154-306140-16&ct=tcm:154-76770-32), Designer James Norris from Ubisoft Leamington was back to discuss more Underground in 1.8 with Petter and Terry.

This week, Community Developers Petter Mårtensson and Yannick Banchereau discussed the release date of Update 1.8, the delay of the upcoming Global Event, the future of State of the Game and much more.

If you missed the stream, you can check out the VoD (https://www.twitch.tv/videos/201711527).

Update 1.8 is coming in early December. The reason the update is taking longer than usual to be released following the conclusion of the PTS, is because it is a large content update and requires a longer fine-tuning and testing period compared to some previous updates the game have had.

The next Global Event will follow shortly after the release of Update 1.8. We realize that we haven’t been able to run the Global Events on a monthly basis as we originally planned due to the third Global Event being a part of Update 1.8. We have also noticed that a common community request is to re-run the existing Global Events during the downtime. The reason this isn’t being done is that it isn’t as easy as it sounds to setup on our end. In addition, we also feel that due to currently only having two events in the game as well as because a portion of the community having already received all the rewards possible that this is not quite the time to do it. We would rather look to re-run the events in the future with modified rewards and when we have a larger amount of events to rotate.

We will be looking to do other forms of streams in the future focusing more on all the awesome stuff that the community does in and around the game. This is a part of a larger revamp of the State of the Game format that we are working on, with the aim to create better weekly content for you guys.

Another reason for experimenting with these changes is that we realize a community expectation exists to deliver news during State of the Game. Weeks with little to no news can cause unnecessary frustration. We will therefor likely incorporate a more irregular, news-heavy segment during our future weekly streams utilizing the new format.

Until we are ready to roll out this new format, we will not be hosting a State of the Game stream in weeks when there are no news to share. The gameplay streams with the community teams will continue as per usual. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to revamp our weekly streams to the new format.

Today we announced that we are aiming for an early December release date for Update 1.8 and that the next Global Event will follow shortly afterwards. More details, dates and complete patch notes will be available closer to release.

This weekend we will be running a Double HVT Reward event that as the name suggests, will yield agents double rewards for completing High Value Target contracts.


Starts at: November 17th 00:01 UTC
Ends at: November 20th 00:01 UTC

Stay tuned to future State of the Game streams for further details on Update 1.8 and the next Global Event!

Glad to see some more info on release of 1.8.

I think the addition of a new area outside of the DZ is just what people need, and hopefully will lead to more PvE expansions north towards Central Park ;)

It has been a bit of a downer having no recent Global Event, but having played Assault GE on PTS I suppose it'll do...lol

On a request side-note, can we have an increase in the drop rate for Classified Gear drops from open-world bosses? After well over 200 Named kills I've got just 1 Classified Gear piece...and it was a piece I've already got...lol

Infelizmente não se tem o que fazer no jogo, tenho vários amigo que fazem mais de 30 dias que não entram no jogo, quanto mais demorar pior vai ficar o interesse no jogo, na minha opnião já houve tempo suficiente para ser lançada essa atualização 1.8 já é complicado aguardar 1 mês para jogar um evento global e quando você tem que esperar 2 meses ? se é que vai sair realmente no inicio de dezembro , fico muito triste com a falta e lançamento de novos conteúdos...

If the increased supply drops in the DZ increased the number of players utilizing it, imagine what kind of increase a PvE DZ would create. Imagine it! Or just do it and you won't have to imagine it.

●can u make last stand an actual two squads of four so eight players can get together for last stand.
●I usually have four other friends that are playing and we want to team up but we cannot there is last stand but it does not allow us to do it. There is the dz but players get salty.
●for skirmish: can we get private lobbies were we can invite friends so we can fight each other.
●I would really like if skirmish could also get a team vs team vs team mode.
