Global Events, Commendations, new cosmetics and much more coming.
Tom Clancy’s The Division will be receiving its next major update, namely update 1.7, on August 15th. Servers will shut down for maintenance at 9:30 AM CEST/3:30 AM EDT/12:30 AM PDT for three hours. The update will be deployed during this time and should be ready when servers are back online.
The new update adds quite a lot of new features such as Global Events, week-long events which introduce modifiers to the PvE content and where players can earn Global Tokens. These can be redeemed for caches that will net players new Classified Gear Sets (which confer six piece bonuses as opposed to the regular four). Of course, different Classified Gear Sets will be available in different Global Events and this time around, the sets include Final Measure, DeadEye and LoneStar.
Commendations are also introduced and completing them will award patches to the player. These can be equipped on one’s clothing, replacing the standard Phoenix patch. Other cosmetic additions include face masks, which are teased in the trailer below. Check out some of the patch notes below and the full notes here.
