The Division will roll out shields system, new legendary mission modes in next week’s update
You’re probably mentally gearing up to hear more about The Division 2 at E3 this year, but Ubisoft has reiterated its resolve to continue supporting the original The Division with this week’s announcement that update 1.8.2 will launch on all three core platforms next week on June 14th.
“Players can expect two new Legendary mission modes for Madison Field Hospital and General Assembly alongside the newest system to The Division—Shields,” says the company. “More information on the Shields system will be revealed soon! We are also introducing Reactivation Caches that will be granted to all players with the launch of 1.8.2. Designed with new players in mind, these caches welcome Agents back to The Division by preparing players for end-game activities.”
The patch is also expected to roll out balance tweaks for classified gear and a bunch of bug fixes. Ubisoft’s E3 presentation is slated for Monday afternoon, so stay tuned!
