Tom Clancy's The Division gets Xbox One X Enhanced in latest patch

The Division DirectX 12 Support 'The Division' 1.19 Update Adds Global Events & Xbox One X 4K - Patch Notes
Emmett Howard | 14 April, 2018, 02:47

The Division has received a new update for the Xbox One family of consoles, with Ubisoft releasing the new v1.8.1 update that includes two new Global Events on all platforms. For Xbox One X owners, it also introduces the Xbox One X Enhancement patch, bringing 4K and more to the game.

Ubisoft has also announced two new Global events - Blackout and Onslaught - which will take place at the end of April and the end of May respectively.

The first event Blackout hands players shock ammo, which is capable of dealing more damage when the player charges it by running or shooting. Players will deal Burn, Bleed and Gas effects to enemies in addition to the damage they output normally.

Agents of Tom Clancy's The Division can find more loot in more areas after today's update. The kicker here is that the effect you get changes as you reload. According to the patch notes, enemies will be resistant to certain elements and vulnerable to another.

Finishing Daily Combat, Crafting, Survival and Dark Zone quests will net players 25 Division Tech per activity.

Details about those events as well as the various bug fixes and game improvements can be found at this link.
