The Division’s next update, version 1.8.1, has been officially detailed and dated by Ubisoft.

Update 1.8.1 will be available for all The Division players on April 12 across PC, PS4, and Xbox One. As promised, Xbox One X support will finally arrive with the update.

Xbox One X enhancements come in the form of 4K rendering, a higher level of anistropic filtering, improved reflections and object detail, as well as improved screen-space shadows.

If you’re on Xbox One, there’s still plenty to look forward to in update 1.8.1. The update is adding two new Legendary mission modes for Amherst’s Apartment, and Grand Central Station.

As previously announced, update 1.8.1 will be making some changes to how Classified gear is acquired. First, the Special Vendor will now have a Classified Gear cache that guarantees one Classified Gear piece.

Global Events will now also have individual caches per Classified Gear set for that Global Event, making it easier to get gear from specific sets. The Global Events vendor will no longer offer the basic cache as a result.

The full patch notes will be published closer to launcher, but you can refer to the list below for the biggest additions.

Vendor changes
  • Added a Classified Gear cache to the Special Vendor that guarantees 1 Classified Gear piece from the entire pool.
Global Events vendor
  • Removed the basic cache from the vendor.
  • Each Global Event will now have individual caches per Classified Gear set for that Global Event. This allows the player to purchase, for example, a Fire Crest cache that guarantees one item from that set.
Exotic loot drops
  • Removed Premium Vendor Exotics from Open World loot pool and Exotic Caches.
  • All Exotics added to the Open World Bosses.
Classified gear drop rates
  • Classified Drop Rates chances have been increased in all locations.
  • Legendary Missions now have a 20% chance to give Classified Gear as a reward at the completion of the mission.
  • Season Pass Supply Drops now have a 10% chance to drop Classified Gear.
  • Survival Caches now have a roughly 10% chance to drop Classified Gear.
In April, The Division: Blackout Global Event will be activated, followed by Onslaught in May.
