Ubisoft has detailed the second The Division update that’s going to be released in the coming week. It’s called Conflict and it’s the second of the two free updates that Ubisoft had promised for The Division. It brings new incursion, high-value targets and extraction hijacks. New gear sets are also included that players can use to complement their playstyles further.
One of the biggest additions that Conflict makes to The Division is Clear Sky. It’s a brand new incursion in Columbus Circle which pits Division agents against Rikers and challenges them to take back a formerly LMB-controlled anti-air missile site to restore safe passage to the skies over Manhattan, and also reclaim supply drops stolen by Rikers.
Conflict’s second new feature is high-value targets or HVT. Players will get a list of these targets from the HVT officer inside their base, along with a description, level and recommended gear score that players need to engage with HVTs. Players only get a limited amount of time and only one chance to take down the high-value targets.
This update also makes changes to The Dark Zone, making extractions more intense than they were before. Agents now have the option to hijack players’ loot, meaning that players can run to an extraction rope now and cut it which will cause the loot to fall to the ground.
The Division Conflict update is going to be available for free to players on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on May 24th.
