Here's what's coming in The Division's big free update
It's going to mix things up!
There's a huge patch heading to The Division and it's bringing a couple of new features with it!
In the trailer above you will get a fairly decent overview of the changes coming to The Division in update 1.7. One of the biggest additions that the free update will bring to the game is Global Events. These limited-time PvE events feature special modifiers that reward players with the some of the following items:
- Three Classified Gear Sets.
- Three different Weapon Skins.
- One vanity set.
On top of Global Events, Commendations and Patches will be added to the game. Commendations are new challenges for PvE and PvP that reward players with 'Commendation Score' which other players can see. Some special Commendations award a Patch, which can be displayed on your character's arm, replacing the Phoenix patch.
Update 1.7 will also bring some customization to the game with Face Mask vanity items (can be obtained during Global Events) and the ability to customize your character's face in the Base of operations.
In addition to all this, the free update will bring an Encrypted Cache and Classified Gear Sets. Encrypted Cache is a loot container obtained from the Premium Vendor in the terminal. It requires a key to open and contain unique appearance items, emotes and skins. Classified Gear Set pieces are unique gear set pieces for pre-existing gear sets and will feature 5 and 6-piece bonuses and can be obtained through Global Events.
Of course, the patch brings a slew of tweaks along with it, so be sure to check the patch notes out on the following page.
