'Tom Clancy's The Division' Update: Survival DLC Update Coming This Month, But Not On PS4By Erwin Castro, UniversityHerald Reporter
"Tom Clancy's: The Division" will get some big update this month with the much-awaited "Survival" DLC arriving at Xbox One and PC on Nov. 22, according to an MS Power User report.
However, the patch 1.5 and the "Survival" DLC Update are only available to PC players on the Public Test Server (PTC) which has already made available for the game, allowing players to run and test the DLC update.
The game patch 1.5 and the "Survival DLC Update will be released to the Xbox One and PC players simultaneously, while PS4 players will have to wait 30 days to get the update. This may spell some kind of jealousy from the PlayStation gamers after the game's developer moved the release date for PlayStation to Dec. 20, five days before Christmas time.
According to MS Power User, the new update will bring players a different kind of gaming experience. The game is a 2-hour quest and requires a total of 24 players. Each player will start hungry and weak. To survive, they need to make their way to the Dark Zone, which is the center of the map.
Some of the highlights of the upcoming update include new name weapons, gear sets, new World Tier and some big changes in the Enemy Armor Damage. Reports say that the Enemy Armor Damage is now available in PVP and has become a Major bonus. For all types of weapon, hip fire now recoils stronger compared to aiming down sights.
In addition, the developer has also introduced the Survival game mode and announced that the" Survival DLC " is required to run the game mode. There will be two Survival game modes, the PvP mode which will give 20 percent additional points to the player's final Survival score, and the PvE mode, where players can gather in an area and help out each other's but not kill them.
Released in March 2016, "Tom Clancy's The Division" is an online-only open world third-person shooter video game that being set in a near future New York City in the aftermath of a virus outbreak. The game has been developed by Ubisoft Massive and published by Ubisoft for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One consoles. It was officially announced during Ubisoft's Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2013 event in Los Angeles, California.
There still no words on the final release date for the "Survival" DLC and the Patch 1.5, but it' expected that the DLC update will be released along with the Patch 1.5.
