Uplay PC Weekly Digest 20th May

Welcome to the Uplay PC weekly digest, a regular summary of all the latest Ubisoft PC news.

We’ve got a whole lot of news from the Division team this week regarding the upcoming Conflct Update releasing on Tuesday 24th May.

One of the biggest additions is of course Clear Sky, a brand new Incursion in Columbus Circle, pitting Division Agents against Rikers.

The Conflict update will also be bringing a bunch of new features adding more diverse activities to the Open World and a new layer of tension to the Dark Zone.

Incase you missed it, we recommend that you check out the Special Report livestream (https://www.twitch.tv/thedivisiongame/v/67370475?t=11m40s) with some live gameplay of the new features.


For the open world there is going to be two new mission types Search and Destroy and High Value Targets. Search and Destroy missions, found from mission boards task you with taking out a bunch of level 30 enemies. These will grant you Target Intel, which can be used to gain access to daily and weekly High Value Target Missions from two new NPC’s located in your Base of Operations, putting you up against some difficult 30+ elite enemies with the chance to score some sweet rewards.

As for the Dark Zone, we’re giving you the chance to Hijack Extractions. Once a loot bag has been attached to the helicopter rope for extraction, get close and cut the rope to spill that lovely loot all over the ground. But be warned! It takes time to make the cut and you will be flagged Rogue as soon as you start. In addition to this we’re also bringing you Sealed Caches, dropped from NPC’s the contents will remain hidden until extracted and safely in your stash.

You can find full details on these features in the blog post. (http://tomclancy-thedivision.ubi.com/game/en-GB/news/detail.aspx?c=tcm:154-250474-16&ct=tcm:148-76770-32)


Coming with 1.2 are some changes to loot drops:

Adding another source of high quality loot for the Open World
Increasing mission rewards on Hard Mode and Challenge Mode main missions significantly
Adding guaranteed 204 weapon drops to the Incursions weekly
Clearing Hard Mode or Challenge Mode Incursions will now reward you with a loot drop relevant to the difficulty every time
