Agents, incoming State of the Game transmission:
During the last State of the Game, Community Developer Petter Mårtensson was joined by Creative Director Terry Spier at Red Storm Entertainment to announce the 1.8.3 Striker changes and balancing tweaks.
This week, Community Developer Yannick Banchereau joins Petter to announce Update 1.8.3 going live and provide Gamescom updates.
We had a maintenance this morning that pushed Update 1.8.3 live across all platforms! The patch includes changes to Classified Striker's Battlegear, Showstopper fixes, and fixes to the "running in place" bug. For more details, check out the Patch Notes.
We ran into a few technical issues with the Survival Free Week, and so we are extending the event to Monday, August 27th at 9:30 CEST!
If you are attending Gamescom, the demo is available to play until Saturday, August 25th! We want to see your pictures at the event, so be sure to email them to ‘firstname.lastname@example.org' or share them using the hashtag #TheDivision2 on Twitter.
For more information on The Division 2 pre-orders and editions announced with Gamescom, check out the VOD.
Global Event Strike is coming next week, beginning on Monday, August 27th. The event will last one week, ending on September 3rd. As a reminder, the following Classified gear sets will be available in Strike Caches:
- Path of the Nomad
- Predator's Mark
- Banshee's Shadow
As always, be sure to join us over on the Official Forums or on the community Reddit if you're looking for a place to discuss all things related to The Division.
Until next time!
The Division Dev Team
