To go along with the Global Event madness, we also are enabling Twitch drops throughout the entire month for everyone who watches The Division Twitch channel. Starting on March 2nd and ending on March 30th, viewers will be able to earn the following:

  • Watch 30 minutes: 3 Cypher Keys
  • 60 minutes: The Asher vanity outfit
  • 90 minutes: 3 Cypher Keys
  • Every 30 minutes you watch after that, up to 6 hours: 5 Cypher Key Fragments

Do not forget to link your Ubisoft account with your Twitch account here to be eligible for the drops campaign. Players will not receive the drops unless their accounts are linked! Also keep in mind that minutes watched is collective, and so any time spent watching the stream over the month of March will count toward the goodies!

To recap our journey since launch, we also want to share some statistics with everyone!

Over 20 million players have played The Division since March 2016, with 500,000 of those players spending over 400 hours in-game! Since launch, 66 billion NPCs have been killed and Lexington was completed 55 million times (thanks in-part to the Global Events). In two years, 550 million Rogue Agents have been killed in the Dark Zone. One PS4 player has completed 7,768 waves in Resistance since the launch of Resistance. To put it into perspective, that is an average of 100 waves a day! Underground was visited 160 million times and cleared 69 million times. Survival, on the other hand, only has a 16% success rate!

To close today’s State of the Game, there was a community creation shared with us relating to last week’s announcement of Classified drop rate changes. Reddit user Bob Miggle re-imagined Game Designer James Norris from Ubisoft Leamington sprinkling (not showering) Classifieds across the game. We absolutely love this.

Remember that the Global Events are re-running during the month of March during the weekends. To qualify for Twitch drops, don’t forget to link your Ubisoft and Twitch accounts together and watch some of our Community Team streams!

The upcoming Global Event changes are not implemented into the game just yet. These are still under development and will be implemented as soon as possible.

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!
