Agents, incoming State of the Game transmission:

During the last State of the Game (https://tomclancy-thedivision.ubisoft.com/game/en-gb/news-updates/330956/state-of-the-game-july-19th-2018), Community Developers Yannick Banchereau and Hamish Bode announced the launch of the next Shield, a free Underground DLC Week, and an upcoming client patch.

This week, Yannick and Hamish returns to announce the start date of the next Global Event Assault and to provide a quick update on the upcoming client patch.

During this week's maintenance we deployed a server-side fix for the ‘Fast Mover' commendation and it will now progress as intended.


Kill 10 enemies with increased close range damage during Assault in 60 seconds

The Underground DLC free week is now over. We hope that you enjoyed your time down in the Underground and got a chance to complete Sacred - our newest Shield.

Global Event Assault is returning next week! It will start on Monday, July 30th 8 AM UTC and will run until August 6th, 8 AM UTC.


Global Modifier: Assault - Agents inflict stronger close range damage.
Activity Modifier: Crucial Assault - Enemies inflict stronger long range damage.
Group Modifier: Major Assault: - Stick together to deal more damage.

Earn cosmetic rewards by completing commendations and by achieving high rankings in the leaderboard.

The following Classified gear sets will be available during Assault.


Classified Striker's Battlegear
Classified Reclaimer
Classified Sentry's Call

See you in the streets of Manhattan, agents!

Today we confirmed that the upcoming patch will address the current Striker's Battlegear meta with the aim to increase build diversity. Additionally, a potential fix for the ‘Running in place' bug is being investigated.

A few more issues are also currently being looked at. More information will come at a later date as we are still early in the process. Stay tuned to future State of the Game episodes for more information!

Until next time!

Man you guys are killing me. Been waiting for this GE to get my striker and reclaimer finished for my PS4 account and now it happens while I am on vacation week. Why cant we get 2 week GEs? Since we cant buy specific gear set classifieds a GE is about our only hope and now I will most likely never get it sine this game will be wingding down this year. Please set the GEs to two week time periods, and can we please get the ability to by a classified cache by gear set normally like we can on a GE?

Come on guys we are 6 months away from the game being over with so quit making life so darn difficult. I don't mind grinding for funds but give me a chance to get something.

Two week periods is something to consider, but Classifieds are still meant to be just that. Despite this notion, the Classified drop rates have increased across the board in the general pool (20% from Legendary missions, 10% from Supply Drops, etc) since their inception to cater to community requests. While timing is unfortunate, it does grant a level of urgency to these events. If you cannot attend, we recommend farming the DZ, open world bosses, or spending Phoenix Credits on the Classified Caches in the Terminal.

Why isn't stuff like this mentioned in the Ubisoft Club app???? There's a (general) News section in the app and also a specific The Division section.
