The Division’s Last Stand update is out now as part of the Season Pass, alongside the 1.6 update to the main game, which is available free for all players.
So you got The Division’s Survival update back in November last year, and you fought against the new survival mechanics – including managing their hunger, thirst and energy levels – all while trying to get to a cure for the virus which is slowly killing you at the centre of the map, beating off all competitors. It was a last person standing deal, a bit like the Hunger Games, but with the added threat of smallpox.
Joining Ubisoft’s crushing online resource grind is the all-new The Division’s Last Stand update. Wait … doesn’t ‘Last Stand’ sound a bit like the last person standing aspects of ‘Survival’? While the concept behind the name sounds the same, the game modes are actually quite different. Will, within the extremely narrow confines of The Division’s hardcore grinding, obviously.
The Division’s Last Stand update will pit eight Division agents fighting against a team of Rogue agents as they attempt to capture the tactical terminals. It will also include a new incursion, called Stolen Signal.
While The Division’s Last Stand update is paid DLC – costing £11.90, or available for free via a Season Pass – Ubisoft are also pushing a free update, version 1.6 of the main game, which includes:
- An expanded Dark Zone map with three new areas unlocked.
- New Contamination events that take place in an underground location in the Dark Zone.
- New exotic weapons and landmarks.
- Dark Zone leaderboards.
- And a new Legendary mode.
The Last Stand is available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, and can be downloaded globally now.
