Agents, incoming State of the Game transmission:

During the last State of the Game (https://tomclancy-thedivision.ubisoft.com/game/en-us/news/152-321178-16/state-of-the-game-march-29th-2018), Community Developers Petter Mårtensson and Yannick Banchereau confirmed the release date for Update 1.8.1 and showcased submissions from the community.

This week, Petter and Yannick recap the upcoming changes with Update 1.8.1 and feature community members cosplaying using the #EmojiAgent (https://twitter.com/search?q=emojiagent&src=typd) hashtag, among others!

If you missed the news, Update 1.8.1 is releasing next Thursday, April 12th. A recap for all the new features and changes is available in our blog post (https://tomclancy-thedivision.ubisoft.com/game/en-us/news/152-321095-16/save-the-date-update-181).

Last week, we featured an Agent who helped 35 players earn their Piggy Masks, on top of 74 other players earn their Happy Mask during Global Event Assault. Check out the album (https://www.facebook.com/pg/gcrock6/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1861176657290631) of Agents wearing their new masks! Thanks for all the hard work, GC-Rock (https://www.youtube.com/gcrock)!

We received video submissions from Agent ThreeFiveSe7en detailing some tips and tricks regarding inventory management. Check out his first video, Stop Hoarding Trash Gear, along with the second in the series—Stop Hoarding Trash Weapons (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NFHXCrNqIGA&feature=youtu.be).


If you missed the stream last week, you would have missed a challenge circulating within the community. Using the hashtag #EmojiAgent, players are taking photos of themselves cosplaying their own Division Agents who are performing an emote in game. Agents are challenging other Agents, and we have received some cool submissions as a result!

To start, Agent H5000_ (https://twitter.com/h5000_/status/979770773354287106) put his hands up as his Agent did the same! How do you rate his performance?


AkiMura_tw_2017 (https://twitter.com/AkiMura_tw_2017/status/979614937470222338) is not afraid to get down as he Agent performs the Sumo-wrestling emote in-game. Thanks for your submission all the way from Japan!


DawnOfShadow (https://twitter.com/DawnOfShadow/status/979037885243551745) shrugs it off, SHD beanie in hand. Classic!


Damo_Kb8 (https://twitter.com/Damo_kb8/status/980336301634449408) sent in a screenshot giving everyone a thumbs-up, wishing everyone well!


Agent Splintrshield (https://twitter.com/Splintrshield/status/980621516638511104) praises the sun both in and out of game. Now we know what Hunters do on Sunday mornings!


BEEBSTEEN (https://twitter.com/BEEBSTEEN/status/979547461177036803) nails it in terms of authenticity. Talk about a mirror-image!


Agent_Mab (https://twitter.com/Agent_Mab/status/979415592536035328), as well as her Agent, are watching you!

We shared an awesome Hunter fan art from DavidinhoSpi (https://twitter.com/DavidinhoSpi/status/973998635330560001) last week and thought it deserved a spot on State of the Game!

WolfOfCherno (https://twitter.com/UberTimmeh/status/981399524743766016) created a spin on the popular movie, “Saving Private Ryan” but applied it to The Division. Introducing Saving Private Ramos!
