Ubisoft has just dropped the biggest free update for their online-only action role-playing video game Tom Clancy's The Division. With that update released, they have another promotional offer for this multiplayer shooter game.

For short details of all the content that comes with Update 1.8, you can take a quick look at the launch trailer clip of it.




In Resistance, enemy teams will join up as teams to fight against you in waves, which is highly unlikely of them. You can firm up your defenses and a lot other stuff using resources dropped by your enemies once they are killed. So, the best you can do in a four members team is to try and stay alive for as long as you can. The changes are definitely made for good and the game is even better than it was before with the update.

Skirmish on the other hand is more like player versus player mode that is designed for two teams of four players engaged in killing each other while the clock is ticking. There is a social hub called Camp Clinton, which is almost similar to the main safe house Terminal. You can buy exotic weapons and new gears to even the odds of battlefield.

Now, along with this free update, there comes a free weekend of Tom Clancy's The Division, offering players to have a trial of the game followed by a sweet discount of 70% off on the whole package. Massive Entertainment and Ubisoft allows you to play The Division for free from December 7-10. The progress made during this period will be transferred to the main game if you choose to buy it following the free weekend.




Currently, the trial will only let you play for six hours, which might upset a lot of gamers but it also grants you access to all three DLC expansions; Underground, Survival and Last Stand. After releasing almost a year ago, The Division has finally rising once again from a slow running as the game have seen an all time increase of active users of 150% on daily basis, having a total of 9.5 million users right now. Hopefully, the numbers will rise following the free weekend experience for sure.
