Ubisoft’s The Division has been updated with patch simply named as 1.1 Incursions. This patch brings changes to game play, the end game and a host of new fixes and bug patches. Falcon Lost its he first of the Incursions and is available in the Stuyvesant area, but you’ll have to have completed the last mission, General Assembly and be level 30. And it’s also advised you tackle this with three others as it’s been balanced for four players. Furthermore, there are now more weekly assignments and new rewards in Operation ISAC, which will be available every Tuesday at 0900hrs PST. And if you’re plagued by cheaters, you can report them to Ubisoft Massive. Those caught cheating will get a three day ban, with a permanent ban imposed if they cheat again. Finally, you’ll be able to craft level 31 and level 32 items from blueprints. You can expect new gear sets, new Dark Zone Supply Drops (and more Dark Zone updates too) and new High End weapons. You can find the full list below as well as a video. And why not check out our review here.
