"Resistance" is a PvE horde-type mode, where all the opposing factions have joined together in an effort to take down Division agents.

The "Resistance" update adds a cooperative mode of the same name where up to four players fight endless waves of enemies in the new West Side Pier area.

The Division 1.8 update is due for release on December 5, ahead of a free weekend if you'd like to test it out between December 7-10. There's a lot to like in Resistance including a new area of the map, new PVP and PVE game modes, alongside tweaks and bug fixes.

We don't know anything about the second expansion at the moment, aside from the fact that it'll be out sometime in spring 2018. For those hoping for a new Raid, you are in luck as the expansion adds the game's first Riad Lair, Eater of Worlds.

Skirmish - In Skirmish, two teams of four human players compete against each other to get the highest number of kills before the timer expires.

The Division is available now for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Enemies drop resources that can be used to either set up defenses or extend the battlefield. And it's not enough to just "down" an enemy player - you have to eliminate them to make it count. Tom Clancy's The Division will also be available at a 70% discounted price during this time on all platforms, and players will be able to carry over all of their progress if they decide to purchase the full game. As far as the new Exotic firearms in The Division's next update go, Agents will have the chance to get their hands on a submachine gun called The House, a light machine gun named Big Alejandro, and two marksman rifles-one dubbed Devil, and the other branded Heel.

What's more is that 1.8 will also include a social hub too, not to mention improvements to the Underground DLC, a new revamp of the rogue mechanics, and optimisations to the gear system.
