Now that update 1.4 has been released to favorable reviews, Massive is looking to get back on track with post-release content for The Division.
During a Twitch broadcast yesterday, Massive showed off the 2nd of 3 DLCs included in the season pass. The premise is rather unique. 24 players are matched together and then flown into main New York City map. However, the helicopter crashes along the way scattering all the players on the outskirts of the inner city. Each player then starts with low-level equipment and a pistol with a goal of reaching the center of the city.
The DLC is aptly named survival as players will need to survive enemies and the elements along the way. The expansion will take place on a snowy version of the New York City map and coats, scarves, etc…will now have a cold rating which will help you survive in different temperatures.
Survival is currently being pushed onto the PC test server for a small group of players but will release on all platforms alongside patch 1.5 next month.
Update 1.4 brought many needed changes to The Division and Survival sounds like it could provide some very unique gameplay mechanics for large-scale shooter. We’re anxious to get our hands on it.
