According to a brand new trailer for the forthcoming Conflict Update 1.2 for Tom Clancy’s The Division, the popular third-person shooter’s second of two free updates is set to release on May 24 across all of the platforms on which the game can be played. Once the materials become available, fans should expect never-before-included features, some changes to the Dark Zone, fresh gear sets, new high-end weapons, and perhaps most excitingly, a new Incursion called Clear Sky.
As seen in the trailer below, The Division‘s Clear Sky Incursion is set in Columbus Circle, with would-be Agents being tasked to neutralize Rikers who have taken over an abandoned LMB anti-aircraft missile site. Should players not succeed in suppressing the area’s threat, the enemies have the potential to control the entire Manhattan airspace, which not only will make them more powerful, but also will compromise the Agents’ supply drops.
Of course, The Division fans are going to get fresh gear sets for the Incursion that will better complement the ways in which they play so as to help the mission go off without a hitch. As shown off in the above footage, there’s Hunter’s Faith, Lone Star, Final Measure, and Predator’s Mark, and each loadout has its own set of advantages. Not to mention, there is going to be the inclusion of high-end weaponry such as the Hungry Hog M60 LMG, the Centurion M1911 Pistol, the Medved Saiga-12 shotgun, and the Historian M1A MMR.
Furthermore, there will be a new feature making its way into the game with the Conflict update as it will be adding what are known as high-value targets (HVT). Inside of Agents’ bases, an HVT officer will be stationed to provide players with a list of these targets, including their level, a description of them, as well as the recommended gear score—that is, the game’s Destiny-like leveling system—needed to engage and eliminate them completely. Interestingly enough, however, there’s a limited amount of time to do so and players only get one chance to take down these targets.
On top of all this, the tensions for the Dark Zone’s extractions are apparently going to be ratcheted up even higher, as The Division‘s forthcoming update will give other Agents the option to hijack another player’s loot. Basically, in order to do so, someone else can run up to an extraction rope and cut it, which causes all of the equipment to fall to the ground.
Taking the details from The Division‘s Conflict update trailer into consideration, it seems as if Ubisoft Massive is on track to provide players with a pretty sumptuous amount of content to tide them over until its plans for paid DLC with expansions called Underground, Survival, and Last Stand come about later this year. In the meantime, though, fans can while away the hours by staying busy with the game’s recently updated weekly assignments.
Tom Clancy’s The Division is out now and is available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
