Greetings Agents!

What did you think of E3?! We shared what’s coming with Underground and even gave you sneak peek at Survival. Today we’ll recap all that goodness and provide some more information!
So to recap:

Underground is coming on June 28th with update 1.3 for Xbox One and PC, and is coming to PS4 on August 2nd.
Check out the Underground Trailer (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBlQYBIidoM).
You will receive 3 outfits as a gift for Ubisoft’s 30th birthday (http://tomclancy-thedivision.ubi.com/game/en-GB/news/detail.aspx?c=tcm:154-255187-16&ct=tcm:148-76770-32)!
We had a Special Ops Masterclass. The VOD for this will be up later!
Take an early look at Survival (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=De-x3xxG1bU).


In today’s weekly maintenance we fixed an issue where low level players were receiving High End items when completing High Value Target missions with level 30 friends.
We’ve also just released Intelligence Annex 11 (http://tomclancy-thedivision.ubi.com/game/en-GB/news/detail.aspx?c=tcm:154-255192-16&ct=tcm:148-76770-32), in which we dive deep into Underground! So you might want to check that out for your burning Expansion questions.


The team is working hard to deliver an awesome Underground experience as well as a great Update 1.3 that will be coming to everyone.
Update 1.3 will feature significant weapons balancing, among other things, so players will have the option of using the weapons they like and be more effective with them!
We’ll be releasing an article very soon to detail just what is happening with the weapons balancing, so you can get a taste of what to expect and perhaps even prepare your loadout already!



With Underground coming, an important question we get of course is which parts are free and which are paid. Let’s break it down.
Content that will be exclusive to DLC owners includes the Underground feature, the new Dragon’s Nest Incursion and 4 DLC exclusive Gear Sets.
Free content that is coming with 1.3 – which is coming to everyone on the same date - is everything else that is part of the update: bug fixes, weapon balancing, gameplay changes, new weapons and 1 new gear set!


During our E3 demo, some people have looted pieces of the Frontline Gear Set. However, this set will not be included in the update yet. We’d also like to remind everyone that any numbers and balancing are still subject to change, so don’t get too ambitious on theorycrafting just yet!


ArcadeCloud (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYW45MHXiBHQ8KMK_79VwEQ) made a cool animation about their experience in game. Jumping Jacks in the elevator is key.


KineticGTR (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCssah1FcvfT25Juty3UDsNg) meanwhile compiled some of his funny moments, which mainly involve ridding the Dark Zone of Rogue agents. Kudos!


Awasce gave us reason to search for Agent animals.

NikiVandermosten (http://nikivandermosten.deviantart.com/) quickly showed us this is an actual thing. Agent animals, everywhere!
