Ubisoft's Resistance update 1.8 has landed


The West Side Pier is an industrial port in the northwest corner of the map dominated by a massive aircraft carrier, and it will play host to two new game modes.

Skirmish (PvP mode) - In Skirmish, two teams of four players compete against each other to get the highest number of kills before the time expires. So yeah, death-match. Resistance though, sounds cool. In the PvE Resistance mode, different AI factions team up to battle the division agents. Using cooperative tactics is strongly encouraged, as is using the resources dropped by enemies to set up defenses or extend the battlefield. Very cool actually, and a proper horde mode.

YouTube to counter extremist content with 10000 staff
Google also promised more manual work to check that ads are not running alongside content that reflects badly on advertisers. Google-owned video-sharing site YouTube will hire 10,000 people to keep a check on the negative content on the platform.

Starting Wednesday, December 6 through Sunday, December 10, The Division and all three expansions will be free to play. Teams earn points each time a downed enemy player is eliminated.

Ubisoft has posted a trailer for the latest update to Tom Clancy's The Division's 1.8 update to celebrate its launch tomorrow, and announced plans for a free weekend to boot. This free period will be available across all available platforms and accessible to free weekend players.
