Agents, incoming State of the Game transmission:

During the last State of the Game, Community Developers Petter Mårtensson and Yannick Banchereau announced the extension of Global Event Blackout and showcased community cosplays and #EmojiAgent submissions.

Petter and Yannick are back this week to announce the Global Event Onslaught release date!

Welcome to Episode 99.5!

During last week’s maintenance, we fixed an invincibility bug. If you come across any suspicious behavior, please send the bug reports to us at “stateofthegame@massive.se”.

We hope everyone enjoyed the two weeks of the Blackout Global Event! Next up is Global Event Onslaught, launching on Monday, May 21st at 08:00 AM UTC. The event runs for one week, ending on May 28th, 08:00 AM UTC. The Onslaught modifiers are as follows:

  • Onslaught - Always active. Deal Burn, Bleed, and Gas effects to enemies in addition to normal damage. Reload to change the effect.
  • Savage Onslaught - Onslaught behavior, plus enemies are vulnerable to one effect type and resistant to others. Agents take increased damage from resistant enemies.
  • Brutal Onslaught - Savage Onslaught behavior, plus when two or more group members kill a vulnerable enemy within two seconds, each member can reload to gain a damage bonus for a single clip.

In addition, the following Classified sets will be available during Onslaught:

  • Classified FireCrest
  • Classified LoneStar
  • Classified Predator's Mark
  • Classified Reclaimer

Moving on to our community segment, we want to wish @projekct_amk a Happy 50th Birthday!

We have one community video to share with everyone today from @Area_The_Fox, featuring a group of Agents in Division cosplay. The attention to detail is phenomenal!

As previously announced, Update 1.8.2 is scheduled for June and will release with Shields. More details are on the way!

State of the Game will be taking a break for a few weeks to upgrade the livestreaming room with new equipment. Everyone can expect Episode 100 on June 7th! While the team is working on the improvements, we will have fewer gameplay streams from Massive. Do not worry, as Community Managers @AmperCamper and @JohanLnh will still be streaming during the week!

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!
