The Division’s new patch 1.8 locations want you dead

Boat? Boat.

Have you ever really wanted to get ganked by the AI in a game? That’s what you’ll be getting with the two new areas in The Division arriving with patch 1.8. Players traversing the West Side Piers will find enemies dynamically spawning along the zone, and the designers are bragging that it’ll at least seem like the game is trying to take you out specifically. Which probably sounds either awesome or awful, depending on how you feel about enemies popping up to shoot you from diverse angles.

You can check out all of that in the latest developer stream, archived just past the break. The new areas will also make Division Tech (previously available only in the Dark Zone) accessible to players within these wholly PvE regions, which should be welcome for those who don’t wish to have even the threat of actual ganking. Check out everything just below if you’re curious to see what it’s like by the harbor in the next patch.

I always enjoy jumping into The Division every few months to sate my need to shoot stuff occasionally, purely for stress relief and blood pressure reasons of course. Nice to see there will be some new pve stuff for me to get my teeth into the next time I go there :-)

with all the recent updates to this game, I decided to install it and give it another go.

I guess when I had played it at launch, I had a smaller monitor. Now with my 28 inch, im getting serious motion sickness, thanks to there not being any FoV settings in game.

Sigh.

Oh shit, adding Division Tech to PvE? I’m happy with that.

Still need to carve out some time to see how the global mission things work (the few times I’ve logged in they’ve been disabled), but I’m quite looking forward to this patch. I just really hope they make finding pugs for Underground much easier. It’s frustrating to never really be able to find a group, especially considering I managed to get in one early on that made playing through them super fun.

I haven’t played since Survival was first put in, and only periodically before then, but my Underground experience has always been horrible. Most times I’d get kicked out of 8/10 groups before I even had time to load into the same base phase as my team, presumably because I wasn’t massively overgeared for the content we were doing.
