Ubisoft has finally given Agents more information regarding next month's Incursion mode.

Ubisoft announced a Special Report for The Division would be taking place today which would focus squarely on the upcoming Incursion mode, which is expected to release on April 12. So without further ado, let's learn more about Incursion.

One of the first things we learned is the fact that Incursions will challenge groups with very, very difficult challenges. There will be two difficulty modes with "Hard" being the easiest. In fact, only really good groups with good gear are encouraged to even attempt to take on Incursions. Agents with a certain Gear Score will be able to participate, which we'll get into in the next paragraph. The Falcon Lost Incursion will take place under the streets of New York within a water-treatment facility and it's imperitive for Agents to retake the water plant, which will be guarded by LMB.

Update 1.1 will introduce Gear Sets, which will offer unique talents based on the kind of gear set you currently have equipped. There isn't one specific way to earn these Gear Sets, but partaking in Incursions will give Agents the opportunity to earn them, while Challenge mode will serve as a sure-fire way to earn them. After Agent Level 30, Item Level will be replaced with Gear Score, which will help in knowing what Gear Sets would be more effective than others.

Trading will also be included in update 1.1, although it'll only be available under certain conditions. For its introduction to The Division, trading will only be possible among Agents that are grouped together, although the two Agents will need to head on over to a particular gate in order to trade. Trading won't always be available as Agents can trade among their group members for two hours, and group members that accidentally pick up a piece of gear and drop it again in order to offer it to someone else.

Daily and Weekly assignments will also be included in update 1.1. Completing these Assignments will rewards Agents Phoenix Credits and Division Tech.

Supply Drops will be dropped into the Dark Zone and won't need to be extracted since they're being dropped in from the sky, rather than being gear that were infected. These supply drops will dropped in approximately once every hour and groups can attempt to retrieve them, but they're going to be protected by a number of enemies, some of which may be named. Only one group can earn the loot from these supply drops, which will offer "really good loot," so we have a feeling there's going to be a lot of Rogue activity around them.

      lol that makes no sense at all. It would become infected once it dropped in

        It is in a crate sealed. When you open it, it doesn't become infected cause it isn't in the elements for very long.
