SITREP Radio bring you Episode 80, with a focus on being more positive this week than they were last week.

To remind everyone – update 1.8 is a free update. COMPLETELY 100% free. It is bringing players of The Division brand new map areas (West Side Piers), a brand new PvE horde mode (Resistance), a brand new 4 vs 4 PvP mode (Skirmish), brand new lore, a brand new take on the Rogue Mechanics in the Dark Zone, a re-working of The Underground and new functionalities within the game such as the Optimisation Station. All for free. Yes there might be things that aren’t quite to our liking (nor much of the community) such as certain mechanics within the new rogue system “Rogue 2.0” or the ease at which the Optimastion Station can be used to get “God Roll” gear – but the majority of patch 1.8 is bringing the player base more things to do, much of which is brand new. That can only be a good thing for the longevity of the game and for the health of the player base.

Yes we are aware we have been critical of this update previously, and we are critical of certain aspects of it this week too, but that doesn’t take away from any of the aforementioned points, nor does it mean any of the three of us are likely to uninstall the game anytime soon.
