The patch notes reveal a lot of new changes that are going to go live on April 12
Ubisoft Entertainment SA (UBI) The Division is set to receive its next update next week and the new update brings a host of new content alongside the new end game activity, Incursions. Alongside the release of the first incursion, the update is going to bring in changes to the game’s economy including changes to the vendor currency requirements, drop rates for Phoenix Credits and more. However, one little change in the new update is causing an outcry among the fans and it is ugly, to say the very least.
In the patch notes to the upcoming update, there are a number of changes made being made to the crafting station. The crafting station has become one of the major sources of getting high end gear, especially for those who have not been able to get high end gear through regular drops. To those people along with many others, the crafting station allows you to have a high end gear piece with some variations. But now, it looks like that crafting is going to become a lot harder because the material requirements for the crafting station are being bumped by up to 50% and this adds to the already punishing grind that is present in the game. While it is something that is not unusual for MMO games, fans are comparing the game to Destiny where the weapons depended on material farming, something which was patched later on in the course of the year.
In other news, Ubisoft has announced a new series of in-game challenges that are going to be available soon to agents. The series, which is called Operation ISAC, is going to go live with the April 12 update, is going to reward players with exclusive rewards (which have not yet been detailed) for completing special in-game assignments. The assignments are going to rotate on a weekly basis and while there have not been many details revealed on what the assignments are going to be or how exactly they are going to work in their weekly rotation, there is a new trailer for Operation ISAC revealed which mentions that players can “expect a new transmission” every Tuesday which are going to give them specific assignments to complete in order to earewards.
That being said, the April update is certainly going to be a big one and we cannot wait to play through the First Incursion when it goes live. Stay tuned for more details and let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
The Division is now available for Sony Corp.’s (NYSE:SNE) PlayStation 4, Microsoft Corporation’s (NASDAQ:MSFT) Xbox One and Windows PC.
