The first Incursion coming to The Division, titled Falcon Lost, includes a new end-game activity and some highly anticipated features.
Falcon Lost has two difficulties; hard mode is for those who have a gear score equivalent to level 31, while challenge mode is even tougher. There are no checkpoints during Falcon Lost, so if your team goes down it's right back to the beginning.
Enemies will be able to deploy aerial drones and you'll come up against an armored personnel carrier, which acts as a boss and is impervious to bullets, forcing you to find another way to deal with it.
Four rare gear sets will be added with the update; Sentry’s Call, Striker’s Battle Gear, Path of the Nomad, and Technician’s Authority. Each one is meant to support a distinctive play style.
Sentry’s Call will promote consistent precision and Striker’s Battle Gear is for assault-focused players. Finding and equipping four pieces of a single set unlocks an all new talent, which the developers are keeping to themselves for now.
Also arriving with the update is the much demanded ability to trade loot with other players.
You'll be able to drop any gear you've picked up and make it available to other members of your group, while dropping items in the Dark Zone will require you to be inside the Dark Zone gate.
Other new features included in the update are:
Falcon Lost is scheduled to go live on 12 April and is the first of two free Incursions being added to the game. The second, Conflict, is planned to follow in May. There’ll also be three paid expansions throughout the year.
