An Ubisoft wide maintenance will occur on Monday, 22nd of January. During this time, the game might be unavailable or you might experience connectivity issues. You can find more details and exact times on the Official Forum. You will be able to keep up to date on the maintenance via our official Twitter.

In this week’s State of the Game, we took the opportunity to highlight some of the great community content that you produce.

RetroHurricane shared his depiction of a friendly neighborhood sleeper agent, named Connor. Wielding a ballistic shield and a shotgun, he is prepared to answer the call when the time comes!


We have a lot of talented Cosplayers in our community and MiguelMando141 is no different. His SHD agent outfits is superb and the mirror-effect adds an artistic touch.


On the flip side, SplinterShield’s Hunter outfit is sure to strike fear into agents who have strayed too far into the Underground. It seems like the Hunter’s upgraded their axes!


Division agent Frostie shared a series of photos of him on deployment in New York, protecting the helpless in the chaos the dollar flu caused.



Even SHD agents need to wind down and have some fun from time to time, as Enrique Barthe shows in his video where an agent is showing off his wicked dance moves in the club.

In Eddy Happy Vikings video, a Dark Zone rope cut is narrated by none other than Sir David Attenborough. Is there anything that isn’t more interesting when narrated with his soothing voice?

Lone Wolf Entertainment has made it his mission to uncover all the great street art hiding in plain sight on the streets of Manhattan. The video series showcases some of his favorite pieces scattered around the city.

Many community members have also been showcasing the game's graffiti pieces through the #DivisionGraffitiMonday hashtag on Twitter.

Lt. Buzz Litebeer is a content creator who has created a series of informal videos about the game’s previous updates. These videos entitled “Back to the Past” allow the viewer to travel through the games soon to be 2 year history.

Last but certainly not least, Agent Max’s creative mind put together a song titled "Bourbon: Faye's Theme" coupled with cinematic scenes from the game.

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!
