The game mode is the titular Last Stand mode, where players are inserted into a Dark Zone area to retrieve sensitive data that was left behind by the Joint Task Force.

There, players will have to pick one of three locations on four Dark Zone maps, and hold them until the data can be extracted. The mode is an eight-player Player vs Player mode.

A new Incursion has also been added in The Division update 1.6, called Stolen Signal. In it, players must storm a radio station that’s under the control of the Rikers gang.

The Rikers gang is one of the main factions of troublemakers that have taken over the city, and are escaped prisoners from Rikers Island Prison.

In the station, players will travel to each of three wings, which give them unique challenges.

Along with all of the new DLC content, the update will be expanding the size of the Dark Zone, adding in leaderboards for it, and implementing special “Contamination” events.

In these, players must go into disease-ridden areas and fight powerful Cleaners enemies while their health steadily drops.

Also included is the addition of a Legendary difficulty setting, where a number of extremely hard missions will pit players against the Last Man Battalion faction. The missions also only have one checkpoint halfway through, so be on your toes.
