The Division’s first big update detailed

Ubisoft has revealed all of the features and changes to come in The Division’s 1.1 update next week.

Due on April 12, the new update will add the very first ‘Incursion activity’ and the ability to trade items between your group of friends, all you need to do is pop them on the ground.

Incursions will be the primary end-game activity for The Division, similar in many ways to the raids found in Destiny.

They will require co-ordinated teamwork as you participate in lengthy, extreme firefights to obtain super rare loot and equipment.

In addition to Incursions, Ubisoft is also adding a few more anticipated features. Players can now level their character beyond the initial cap with rare equipment.

This can be achieved by amassing a Gear Score by combining rare loot obtained in later missions and incursions.

Bounty assignments are another new feature, which are automatically obtained as you play. These will come in the form of weekly and daily variants going forward.

You can check out the full list of changes in the official patch notes.
