Agents, incoming State of the Game transmission:

During the last State of the Game (https://tomclancy-thedivision.ubisoft.com/game/en-us/news/152-320775-16/state-of-the-game-march-22nd-2018), Community Developers Petter Mårtensson and Yannick Banchereau announced a bonus Global Event Week, discussed the closing of the 1.8.1 PTS, and shared content submitted by the community.

Petter and Yannick are back this week to announce the live date for Update 1.8.1 and share even more highlights from the community!

Update 1.8.1 is coming to all platforms on Thursday, April 12th! The patch includes a number a features:

New Legendary Mission Modes for Amherst’s Apartment and Grand Central Station.
Two new Global Events—Blackout and Onslaught. We will have a launch date for Blackout for everyone soon. Of course, players can expect new masks with these Global Events.
Drop rate changes, including higher drop rates for Classifieds overall and targeted Classified Gear caches. Classifieds will also have a chance to drop in Season Pass Supply Drops. For a full list of drop rates changes, check out our previous State of the Game (https://tomclancy-thedivision.ubisoft.com/game/en-us/news/152-319580-16/state-of-the-game-february-22nd-2018).
Xbox One X Patch with 4K rendering, higher anisotropy, improved reflections, improved object detail, and improved screen-space shadows.

We are aware of an issue with the Fast Mover Commendation tied to Global Event Assault. There was a previous issue with the commendation that has returned, and we are working on a fix.

We have a variety of community content to share with everyone today! To kick things off, we wanted to wish @manning13gaming (https://twitter.com/manning13gaming/status/979264421448044544) a happy birthday!

A huge shout-out to Mike, Rob, and Luke over at SITREP RADIO for their 100th Podcast Episode (http://mashthosebuttons.com/podcast/sitrep-radio-100-episode-100-celebrating-with-friends/)! Thank you for all the amazing work you do!

GCroc (https://www.youtube.com/gcrock)k helped players complete Stolen Signal flawless during Global Event Strike, as well as Falcon Lost flawless during Global Event Assault. You are the hero we need.

@Area_the_Fox (https://twitter.com/Area_The_Fox/status/978570101749354501) is back again with another cosplay, this time with a group of Russian Agents at a convention. The authenticity is real!


We have a series of Agents cosplaying using the hashtag #EmojiAgent (https://twitter.com/search?q=%23emojiagent&src=typd), starting with GooseCosplay (https://twitter.com/goosecosplay1/status/979013176841900034)! The rules are simple: take a snapshot of yourself doing the same emoji as your Agent in-game, and share it with us! Do not forget to use the hashtag!


@DBTheDivision (https://twitter.com/DBTheDivision/status/976733820312371200) is up next, with special guest Sam Fisher!


@WildMax (https://twitter.com/WildMax10/status/976004690092556288) offers his own take on the hashtag, cosplaying his Agent actually playing The Division!


Yannick and Petter were challenged to do the same, and we think they did a pretty good job with their poses! What do you think, Agents?


The graffiti finds are back this week, this time from @GuyBeyondCool, (https://twitter.com/GuyBeyondCooL/status/975740268195532800) @Jacekk44 (https://twitter.com/Jacekk44/status/975801532657565697), and @BeakerBurner (https://twitter.com/BeakerBurner/status/975753289693302784). Remember to tweet your discoveries around Manhattan using #DivisionGraffitiMonday (https://twitter.com/search?q=divisiongraffitimonday&src=typd)!


Update 1.8.1 is coming on April 12th alongside the Xbox One X patch! The long wait is over, Agents!

As a reminder, March 30th is the last day of the Twitch Drops campaign. Players will no longer be granted drops after this date.
