Ubisoft has announced it will be holding a Special Report for The Division to shed some light on its next update, which will introduce Incursions.

The presentation will kick off at 11am PT / 2pm ET, which you can watch along with us as we’ve gone through the trouble of embedding the Twitch livestream below.

Watch live video from TheDivisionGame  on www.twitch.tv

For newly-activated Agents, Incursions are The Division’s raid-like activities which high-leveled Agents have been waiting to take part in, especially if they already reached the max Agent level. The first Incursion is expected to be released in April, but as of now, no real information regarding what it’ll involve has been revealed. That’ll all change later today, though.

      I decided I want them to jump the shark with the DLC.

      The outbreak is a plant by alien invaders who are going to show up and The Division will go all Xcom.

      Then, because JTF is the worst fighting force ever, The Division finds itself isolated and without supplies. So they have to go back and recruit the Cleaners and Rikers they have been killing en masse (yeah Mass Effect 2 mechanics).

      Then they face off against the aliens who are not like those in Crysis and are actually fun to fight against and we all finally get the Men in Black game we deserve.

        That's just about the only way to make the game interesting. At least then we might get a 6th enemy type :(

        "because JTF is the worst fighting force ever"

        this is the most true statement ever stated in the history of true statements.

        So you basically want a more realistic Earth Defense Force game?

          Haven't played that, but sure I guess.

          I think many of us see this world and the mechanics they developed for The Division and want something more interesting on it.

          NYC is cool, the shooting is decent enough, the loot is boring and the motivation in the plot is a stretch. Why not go a little bonkers and have fun with how cool the fundamentals of the game are?

            (And yes I realize there is nothing about the plot I suggested that is original or novel in any sense. The point is having fun with it now.)

      Please be good since I bought the season pass...


      I mean I've gotten plenty of value in the game over 100hours.

      Don't think I've farmed so hard in a game since wow.

      Daniel, DST is currently in effect so PST/EST is incorrect. It should be PDT/EDT or just use PT/ET

        I KNEW I should have just gone with PT/ET instead of trying to sound like a smarty.

      I'll scope this out. I'm only level 9 and will burning through this game at a slow rate, but I'm hoping it has legs similar to Destiny (not that I was a fan, the combat wasn't good IMO).

          Open Incursion starting - 575+ Gear Score Needed!

          Kinda bummed they're going the WoW route cause that’s totally how that’s going to play out.

            March 31, 2016 11:30 AM

            Yeah, built in gear checks and what not. Devs confirmed.

            It's going to be used as a requirement to get in to the Incursions and that's fine because it prevents undergeared people from matchmaking and dragging down an entire group. It's not an ideal setup but it works.

              I hope they have something for those of us who play for fun.

              Would be nice if they had gear score tiers rather than a high minimum so more people could play, though.

              • reply
                March 31, 2016 5:20 PM

                The only problem with this is as the game goes on the lower tier dries up as the trickle of new players ceases.

                  Maybe they make it less about numbers and focus on skill? Perhaps you could pick preset loadouts or something. That way your gear level only matters in PvE.

          Best news so far!! Tired of going in to challenge modes if my friends are not on and end up carrying the team.

          No false gear score too lol the tears will come soon.

            They said the Ubisoft quality control tried the incursions on challenging mode and it took them 3 full work days to beat it. So, yeeeeeah buddy.

              Ohh dude the incursions have little drones flying around with laser sights on them that attack you while you're in cover. This shit is gonna be cash and I'm gonna beat the fuck out of it.

      IMO the end game is fucked right now with the rewards for doing challenge mode not matching the time investment and people constantly running exploits to farm with no challenge. It's just leading to too many people being overpowered in the DZ while simultaneously being unable to actually run a normal challenge mode with 4 people.
