Exploding heads! Bleeding! Yeah!
Ubisoft announced that The Division will get a new update on August 15 (that’s tomorrow people!) that will shake the game up a little bit.

The biggest addition to patch 1.7 is the global event system, which, quite unsurprisingly, will bring us monthly global events that will allow players to partake in various activities with gear and items.
The first month gives us outbreak, which will automatically activate the Rotten to the Core modifier. It infects NPCs and whenever a headshot is hit they explode causing bleed damage for nearby opponents.
There is a lot more new gear to be discovered by collecting stuff spread around the game world, further discussed here.
The Division is available on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
