Original story: Ubisoft Massive has announced a release date for The Division's Last Stand expansion and the 1.6 patch. During last week's State of the Game show, the studio revealed the date, alongside a number of other changes.
Last Stand releases alongside patch 1.6, on Tuesday, February 28. There is no exclusivity period for any platform this time, so the release date applies to PC, PS4, and Xbox One. After fours hours of maintenance downtime, Last Stand and patch 1.6 will be live in the following timezones:
- CET: 12:30pm
- GMT: 11:30am
- EST: 06:30am
- PST: 03:30am
It's worth noting that the new patch 1.6 and Last Stand DLC will probably be available to download about an hour into maintenance, so you should be able to update your game well ahead of it coming back online.
Patch 1.6 has seen a number iterations during testing in the PTS so far, and it's one of the game's biggest. There's a number of sweeping changes to gear balance, although there is no increase in Gear Score this time around. The Last Stand DLC itself is is built around 8v8 PvP battles.
The patch notes have been deployed, and you can read up on them here.
