The Division gets update 1.8 and free weekend this week

Tom Clancy's The Division Update 1.8 has been code-named Resistance by the developers, with the new area of the map being West Side Pier. Which pits two teams of four against each other with all the excitement of a time limit and the victor determined by the highest number of kills. Now it's this week, and Ubisoft says that it will in fact be out tomorrow, and that a free weekend will kick off a couple of days later. Team deathmatch hits the game in Skirmish mode, which pits teams of four against each other in first-to-20-kills battles. Defeated enemies drop resources that can either be used to set up defenses or extend the battlefield.

Ubisoft will be updating The Division on Tuesday, December 5th with the free content expansion called Resistance. Players need to cooperate and find the best strategy to complete as many waves as possible and get greater rewards.

To coincide with this large update, Ubisoft are hosting a free weekend from December 7-10. Teams earn points each time a downed enemy player is eliminated.
