Agents, incoming State of the Game transmission:

During the last State of the Game, Community Developers Yannick Banchereau and Hamish Bode discussed Classified set balancing in relation to the next Global Event’s last four Classified sets.

This week, Community Developer Petter Mårtensson is joined by Yannick to confirm the date for Global Event Ambush and talk community content.

We are back with the first State of the Game for 2018! With the new year upon us, we want to incorporate new changes to the show. We have decided to keep State of the Game as a weekly live-stream, but we want to include more community aspects that surround The Division—cosplays, fan art, highlights, as well as news. We are planning to implement these changes starting next week.

Maintenance today was completed without any issues. The Expansion Stash bug that prevented players from accessing Skirmish without the Season Pass is now resolved. If anyone is still experiencing issues, please contact Ubisoft Support.

After the maintenance today, the Holiday Cache is no longer available. If you did not get a chance to get your hands on the Santa Suit, MrKebab has you covered with a holiday message:

Global Event 4: Ambush is releasing on Tuesday, January 23 and will run for one week. The Classified sets that will release with the event are as follows:

  • AlphaBridge
  • Hunter's Faith
  • FireCrest
  • Tactician's Authority

At this point, we have no plans to tone-down any gear sets. We are waiting for the final four Classified sets to release with Ambush to see how the meta evolves.

We are aware of a video circulating about an invincibility bug, but we have not been able to reproduce the issue at the moment. We suspect it is a one-time bug, but if anyone has more information on the glitch please send the details to stateofthegame@massive.se.

As a preview for next week’s State of the Game, we wanted to highlight some community content!

SHD-LegenBeary may have broken his leg, but he still feels he is in a better place than Faye Lau.

Ghost provided a 3D render of weapons and accessories in The Division. We have no doubts that he will be able to handle himself on the streets of New York.

Lastly, Wild Max created a montage to ensure that everyone gets a little holiday cheer, both inside and outside of The Division.

We feature content like this every single month in our Agent Highlights articles! If you’ve created something you would like to share, please tweet your content with the hashtag #AgentHighlights.

There is a future for The Division, but we are very much focused on Update 1.8 right now. Keep in mind that Update 1.8 is the largest free update to the game, and it is still new. We appreciate all the excitement and enthusiasm, but we ask that everyone be as patient as possible.

To recap, there will be a State of the Game next week but it will be more community focused instead of news-oriented. We hope that everyone appreciates the community creations surrounding The Division because we definitely do!

Do not forget that Ambush begins on January 23! Prepare yourselves, Agents.

As always, be sure to join us over on the Official Forums or on the community Reddit if you’re looking for a place to discuss all things related to The Division.

Until next time!

The Division Dev Team
