The Division's update 1.1 brings trading and Incursions, coming April 12

The upcoming Update 1.1 is the first of two free pieces of DLC that will be arriving to The Division over the next two months, with three paid ones coming over the course of the year.

Update 1.1 brings with it the first Incursion (end game content), item trading, new gear sets that come with unique abilities, random supply drops to fight over in the Dark Zone, and a whole bunch of other additions. Here's a list of the most interesting features coming with 1.1:

Falcon Lost:

Falcon Lost is a new incursion available in the Stuyvesant area

- You must be level 30 and have completed the mission "General Assembly" to access this mission

- The encounter is balanced for 4 players with high level gear

Gear Sets:

Gear set equipment can be found by completing the most challenging activities in Manhattan

Collecting and wearing gear sets grant powerful stat bonuses and talents

Gear sets of varying gear scores can be found for many playstyles. Find the set that best suits yours

- “Tactician's Authority” – enhances electronics and support capabilities

- “Striker's Battlegear” – provide bonuses for assault capabilities

- “Sentry's Call” – enhances marksman capabilities

- “Path of the Nomad” – provides bonuses for lone wanderers


Items dropped by enemies can be shared with other players

Trade items by dropping them as loot from your inventory, so players in your group can pick them up

You can only share items for during the first 2 hours after you have acquired them

Items can only be shared with players who are currently in your group and who were also in your group when the item was originally dropped


Assignments are automatically obtained when you log in and can be tracked from the map via the menu called “Mission Overview”

Assignments are available for a limited time (24h for Daily Assignments and 7 days for Weekly Assignments), after which, they will be replaced by different assignments

Assignments come in different categories:

- Combat

- Dark Zone

- Crafting

Most assignments can be completed while playing alone but some will require enlisting other agent’s assistance to complete

Dark Zone Supply Drops:

Dark Zone Supply Drops are a global event where the Strategic Homeland Defense agency airdrops multiple supply caches to assist Division agents

Supply drops will occur multiple times over the course the day

The supply drops will contain non-contaminated gear of all types that will be ready to use without the need for extraction

These supply drops will be heavily sought after by other agents and enemy factions that roam the Dark Zone, so be ready for resistance

Gear Score:

Every non-vanity gear piece that can be found when your agent is level 30 has a Gear Score value. The higher an item’s Gear Score, the stronger the item

The overall Gear Score of your agent can be seen in your main menu next to your player level. Gear Score indicates the advancement of an agent

Other agents’ Gear Scores are displayed next to their health bars

Improving your gear and increasing your overall Gear Score will grant your agent access to the most dangerous high-end challenges

New High-End Named Weapons:

Added new High-End named weapons:

- Warlord: Assault Rifle

- Valkyria: Submachine gun

- (Historian: Marksman Rifle) Please note that while the Historian will be implemented in the game with this update, it will not be acquirable in-game until update 1.2
