'Tom Clancy's The Division' updates: Patch notes outlined on publisher's site; cheaters warned


The third-person video shooter game “Tom Clancy’s The Division” will be releasing an update that aims to bring in new things and fix existing bugs.

Ubisoft has rounded up the notes on its blog, which includes new additions as well as improvements in several areas such as gameplay, the dark zone, and user interface.

Some of the new features include Falcon Lost in the Stuyvesant area, but players need to be at least level 30 and have finished the mission in the “General Assembly” in order to access this. Aside from this, other new additions are Gear set equipment, which can be unlocked after a mission in Manhattan; a leeway for players to gather items that were dropped by the enemies; the Dark Zone Supply Drops where the Strategic Homeland Defense agency can drop supplies to help the Division agents; and new high end weapons in the form of Warlord: Assault Rifle and Valkyria: Submachine gun.

On the other hand, some of the changes in the game include the change in cost of the high end items to normal credits from Phoenix credits, as well as adjustments in the rank requirement to rank 15 instead of 30 for Superior (Purple) items, rank 25 instead of rank 30 for those who have High-End (Gold) at level 30 and at gear score of 163, and rank 40 from rank 50 for the High-End (Gold) at level 31 and a gear score of 182.

The bugs that were identified earlier were also addressed in order to enhance the gaming experience further. Some of the fixes include the bug that prevents players to access the game when they go beyond a certain number of inventory and the problem that prevents players to hit from the corner of the covers.

The complete details may be found on the blogsite of the developers.

Meanwhile, there are reports that Ubisoft is working to prevent players from cheating in the game. The publishers will give a three-day suspension for players who are caught cheating, while second offenders will already be banned from the game.

“Tom Clancy’s The Division” was released a month ago for the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
