Agents, incoming State of the Game transmission:

During the last State of the Game, Community Developers Petter Mårtensson and Yannick Banchereau highlighted community content and gave a quick update on the ongoing Global Event, Ambush.

This week, Petter and Yannick are back to discuss classified gear drop rates, community content and a kitten that has gone rogue.

Today’s maintenance completed on schedule and performed its normal duties.

The fourth Global Event titled Ambush is now over. We hope that you enjoyed the event and got your hands on some neat upgrades for your agent!

Now that all Classified Gear sets have been introduced, we are looking at the possibility of increasing the Classified Gear drop rate in a few specific locations. In addition, we are also looking at other solutions with the aim to increase their overall availability to the players. We will share further details on this topic as soon as possible.

This week our customer support saw a case of a rogue kitten. A poor agent had his kitten sit on his keyboard prompting the game to delete his character. The resulting support ticket had this picture attached with the caption “The little prick doesn’t even know what he’s done”. It sure looks guilty to me!

Fan Art

Have you ever imagined what State of the Game would taste like in a can? Michael Batenburg rendered a State of the Game beverage for everyone to enjoy. We'll take a few, Agent.

Community member Cheshire Cat created a series of movie posters for ‘A Christmas Miracle’, a motion picture starring our very own Community Developers Petter Mårtensson and Yannick Banchereau. What we want to know is, when’s the premiere?

Thanks for the laugh, agent!

Cosplay

This week we would like to showcase another great cosplayer in the ranks of The Division. Agent Akimura is fighting against the elements with only his sidearm to protect against the dangers of the city. We hope that he managed to gear up and made it to an extraction point in time. We cannot afford to lose any more agents in the blizzard if we are to take the city back.

Video Content

Let’s wrap up this week’s community content with a fan music video. OGSwagPanda put together this brilliant music video titled ”Lawless”. Top notch editing, agent!

As a reminder, we also feature community content monthly in our Agent Highlights articles! If you have content you would like to share, please tweet your creations with the hashtag #AgentHighlights. A huge thanks to everyone who submits!
